Faulty design model
I too am having heating problems. My heat quit. There was this muddy like substance in the jug. I had to replace the radiator, thermostat, and jug because the shop said the cooling system was probably clogged. All for $1000.00.
The next day the car overheated again. This time I took it somewhere else where I was told the water pump was not working. Replaced that!
About a month later the sludge was back. Head is not blown due to head test performed. Still no heat. Had the coolant flushed again. No leaks anywhere. Now will have to have the heater core replaced. Nothing else left to replace.
The odds of the entire cooling system failing simultaneously are absurd. Never again. No more Fords. If after this still no heat, trade in on a foreign car will be the ultimate fix!
Not to mention the car now bucks at stop lights. I attribute this to the cooling issue. Had the car serviced several time for the check engine light, but it still comes back on.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
