Ask Honest John
I heard two loud bangs in the rear of my 2005 Ford Fusion and now it keeps losing power - what could this be?
"I own a 2005 Ford Fusion 1.4 manual petrol. It keeps losing power in second gear, accompanied by a burning smell. I heard two loud bangs in the rear of car as well."
Possibly a stuffed catalytic converter. The ceramic matrix inside it has probably broken up.
What should I replace my Ford Fusion with?
"What should I replace my Ford Fusion with?"
The logical Ford is a B-Max. But you could consider a Peugeot 2008 or a Renault Captur.
Need a family car for under £3000
"We have just recently became grandparents and are looking to replace our old (Mk1) Toyota Yaris. We have a budget of around £2500. We have had a look at the Fiat Panda and the Ford Fusion, but can't decide. Can you recommend a used car for a baby seat and three adults?"
Pandas are surprisingly reliable, but there is a lot more room in a Fusion and the back seats of a fusion fold down properly to leave a flat floor is you ever need them to. Though based on the Fiesta, Fusions are taller and don't corner as well. Avoid the 1.4 diesel. (Very few small cars last as well and remain as cheap to run as a Mk 1 Yaris, so you might consider a Yaris 1.3 Verso.)
Ford Fusion radiator fan problems
"Our Ford Fusion (2003 model) engine radiator fan has just stopped working but kicks in when we turn the A/C on (and the water leaks out of the pressure cap on water bottle). We've just bought a new thermostat and had it fitted at the garage and it's still the same ... does anyone know what the problem could be?"
I'd guess that it is separately switched when the a/c is used but the engine block temp sensor/sender switch that normally switches on the fan has failed.
