2012 FordFusion - start engine in park horrible jet engine…

2012 FordFusion -...

2012 FordFusion - start engine in park horrible jet engine roar starts I'm so scared I turn off car. Checked at ford dealer. No history found. I can't drive it from my terror. Husband has driven it with no noise since.(began Oct. 12,2017)

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

YES

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2012 Ford Fusion

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Fusion yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, this happened across the street from where I bought it. I called 3 AAA. It started o.k. and he drove it across the st. to the dealership who could not find a problem. I've had this happen 2 other times but it ended on it's own.

no lights came on. I have no idea what the mechs. did. They kept repeating computer found no history.

i would have them manually check the secondary air pump...thats what they sound like when they fail...if thats the case its safe to drive but should be replaced

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
