So, I am back to having problems with my car. First it the dead battery/ACM issues, then the long block replacement and axle seals and bearing, now I am having transmission issues. I took it to the dealer and I am waiting to hear back as to what the problem is. Funny thing though the dealer wants to charge me $350 to uninstall and reinstall my FMIC and EEP intake and charge pipes because they are not factory parts. Even though I am still under the 36,000 mile warranty. But as to the issue it was having it would red-line in 3rd gear and sometimes I would have to tap the paddles to shift to 4th and then from 4th to 5th it would jolt and slam hard when it shifted. The dealer did say that there is loss of pressure from 4 to 5 but they won't know the cause till they drop the transmission. I am getting real tired of this cars problems.
Hi rob. As far as the Dealer charging you to remove/reinstall non-factory parts during warranty work: Unfortunately yes, that is the way it works. Ford warranties the car as sold, not as modified. So while some Dealers may say nothing and do it as a courtesy (if Ford does not need to inspect the car first), others will not. I am not defending the policy, only explaining it.
And be careful, as the same goes for the tune. If Ford discovers the tune reprogramming, they can and/or will deny the warranty claim in full. Does not matter if the Dealer and their Service Department don't care (although it is already evident yours does care). Ford makes the final decision, and they, like all manufacturers, are usually strict when it comes to this. They warranty our cars as they sold them to us. And modifications like tunes, FMIC's etc, break that warranty contract concerning problems repairs which can be connected to them, even if only remotely connected.
Again, not defending the policy, just giving Fusion Sport Forum members a heads up as to what can happen.
I hope things work out for you. Good luck.
