      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Durashift Issues

    Thank you all for your answers - I have checked all the wires and checked the actuator - all good - it seems like the damp gets to it so I have re-taped all the wires and plugs - It's bee dry and the car drove great yesterday & today. It will rain tomorrow, so will see if that affects it again - I will update you as soon as I know. Thanks again ...

  3. Durashift Issues

    Hello All, Just purchased a 2003 Ford Fusion 2 Durashift EST (semi-automatic) 1.4 It has just over 20,000 miles on it. Driven by an older couple - thought I got a great deal. Drove it around - felt great - a bit slow on the shift change compared to a manual, but it felt fine. Drove it home from Plymouth to Torpoint - no problems. Next day - my wife drove it about 100 yards and it died! Just wouldn't move. Engine would not even turn - EAC Fail came up on dash. Checked and the battery was dead - completely - and is seemed to be leaking. Replaced the battery with a brand new one and it seemed fine for a couple of days. What's been happening in the meantime 2 times out of 5 in the mornings is that the car will start, but when I drive it for about 100 yards, it starts to stall & lurch - and the Transmission Warning light comes on - the Automatic disappears and it just does not rev up any more - I put it into manual mode and the transmission warning light disappears - then it appears again. I stop the car - tried to start it again and it would not start - no turning etc. Wait a few minutes - start it again and it's fine - no error, no warning light. Not sure if this means anything - but it only happens in the morning, especially after rain. Took it to my mechanic and he ran a diagnostic - no errors, no issues came up! He said the best thing is to start the car and wait a minute or 2 before taking off - Is it an electrical problem (EAC?) / Is it affected by moisture? Please, please help! Thank You! Ihab Thank You
