Question about 2004 Ford Fusion

2 Answers

I have a 2003 Ford fusion 2 TDCI

Two things are happening with this car and I'm unsure whether they're related.. Firstly the temp/guage will suddenly start flashing as though its over heating. (levels are all correct) and then just go back to normal, and this is only after a few moments of driving!!!
But more alarming is the rev-counter blips irratically and seems to stick and if you blip the throttle it goes haywire. this is my first diesel. if it were petrol I'd say the throttle was sticking and spray it with WD, this has no obvious linkages to point to that kind of problem. so any ideas anyone.

Why does the temp gauge indicate the car is running hot when it is not?

Ahh ... the gas gauge / fuel level gauge does not work, either.

Maybe you need to replace the motors that are behind those dials. People are getting charged $300-$500 to have the fuel gauge replaced when the problem really is the little motor - 5 or 6 of them for less than $30. 2003 Buick LeSabre owners are having the same problem with their fuel gauges being erratic.
