SMF - Just Installed!
I am FWD, 2.0L Titanium. After my tank, canister, valve and all other parts of the fuel system were replaced yesterday.. They put the fuel back in the tank, it yielded a 1/2 tank. They put 7 gallons in the car, totaling 16.3 Gallons. The vehicle DTE stated 465.. When the tech told me this over the phone, I about fell out. It was Christmas in my ear. I have never seen my car over 320 DTE since the day I bought it. The technician stated all of the work he did was uploaded into OASIS under the other complaints so any technician should be able to find what he did to my car. All that he did, definitely fixed my issue. Failure to Start after fillup -- FIXEDTank pressurizing and roaring while driving -- FIXEDFuel tank filling issue -- FIXEDEntirely new fuel system -- YES, LOL.
Hi I am new to this forum, so this will be my first replyAbout the fuel tank, I had the same problem that is well commented on all fusion forum, but waited for my first maintenance visit for them to look at it. So here is the very good newsLast tuesday (june 6th) I went at the dealer since it was that time at 8000km (I live in Canada). And the dealer told me there was a recall for that particular problem. Ford is well aware of this problem. The hic is that replacement part for all the cars will only be available on the third quater of this year. In case of emergency they will replace it, but in that case they pull one from the manufacturing plant. You can google recall ford fusion 2013 and will get all relevant info. So all fusion owner should get a letter from Ford in a very near futur.
Poirot - I believe that you are confusing a recent Safety Recall notice which replaces potentially leaking fuel pumps13S04 - Title: FUEL DELIVERY MODULE REPLACEMENT http://allstatetrucks.com/images/Recalls/R13S04%2013%20EXPL%20TAURUS%20MKS%20FLEX%20MKT%20FUSION%20MKZ%20POLICE%20INTERCEPTOR%20053013.pdfwith the Technical Service Bulletin which replaces the actual gas tank and updates the instrument cluster software (on some vehicles) TSB 13-6-3 - REDUCED FUEL TANK CAPACITY - EMPTY REFILL 38 TO 45 LITERS (10 TO 12 GALLONS)- BUILT ON OR BEFORE 4/2/2013 http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/pubs/content/~WT/~MUS~LEN/3575/tsb13-06-03.htmSome of us need to get both things done, and one will not eliminate the need for the other as far as I understand it.All of this is indeed very good news since some of us have been dealing with the tank filling issue for months and it is always good to get a safety recall published and installed as soon as possible.
