SINCE JANUARY 18, MY CAR HAS STALLED MANY TIME WHILE DRIVING, HAS BEEN TO THE DEALERSHIP SIX TIMES, NOT FIXED, ALWAYS UNABLE TO REPLICATE. IT HAS NOW BEEN THERE FOR A WEEK, TRYING TO REPLICATE THE STALLING. IT HAS STALLED WHILE DIVING OUT OF MY DRIVEWAY, ON SIDE STREETS, AND TWICE ON THE HIGHWAY. NO ENGINE LIGHTS GO ON, IT JUST STALLS. THE RADIATOR, THE MAP SENSOR AND NOW THE BATTERY HAVE BEEN REPLACED, STILL NO FIX. THE WATER PUMP WAS REPLACED AFTER A RECALL IN 2014 AFTER OVERHEATING AND COOLANT LEAKS.

ENGINE FAULT SERVICE NOW ERRORS AGAIN. OCCURRED WITHIN 1/2 BLOCK OF LEAVING THE DRIVEWAY, CAR STUMBLES AND BECOMES DIFFICULT/DANGEROUS TO DRIVE. WAS ABLE TO RETURN TO THE DRIVEWAY AND TRIED IT AGAIN SEVERAL HOURS LATER WITH NO ERROR. THIS SAME ISSUE OCCURRED IN 2013 WHEN WE BOUGHT THE CAR NEW, IT TOOK SEVERAL MONTHS TO IDENTIFY THAT SOME WIRING SPLICE/HEAT SHIELD WAS FAILING AS NO ERROR CODE WAS CAPTURED. FORD EVENTUALLY ISSUED A RECALL FOR THAT AND IT HAS BEHAVED UNTIL NOW. THE DEALER HAS ADVISED NO ERROR CODE WAS CAPTURED AGAIN THIS TIME. THEY ADVISE ALL THEY CAN DO IS KEEP THE CAR AND START IT SEVERAL TIMES A DAY TRYING TO CATCH IT FAILING IN ORDER TO CAPTURE THE CODE. I CANNOT BELIEVE THEY'VE DESIGNED A SYSTEM THAT CANNOT CAPTURE ITS OWN ERROR CODES BUT OBVIOUSLY HAVE HERE. WE LEARNED TO TAKE PICTURES OF THE SCREEN WHEN IT FAILED AND DID THAT AGAIN HERE. THERE ARE TWO FORD RECALLS FOR WHAT WOULD APPEAR TO BE THE SAME ISSUE 14S17 AND 14S17-S1 WHERE THEY EXPANDED THE RECALL. IT SEEMS CLEAR THEY NEED TO EXPAND THE RECALL FURTHER.
