  1. This weekend after our first cold spell in Shreveport, LA., (got down to 28F), I found out how long my Ford Motor Co. battery was good for. 3 Years and 20,000 miles. I base that on my car being a 2016 but built in 2015. Won't bore you with all the stuff I did to check it out to make sure it was the battery. Went to Walmart today and bought a 5 year Warranty battery for $119.00. That has been about the average on my previous Fusions.
  2. You are correct, gas is not sprayed on the intake valves, but the better gas produces less harmful vapors that get pushed through to the PCV system. The PCV system being the main culprit on the carbon buildup on the intake valves. Every little bit helps in that prevention of that build up that we know is happening on ALL our engines.
  3. Agree with all that has been said above. 87 Octane good. If you want to keep your engine running its best, stick with a top tier fuel and stay away from the "bargain" brands. Your MPG and Intake valves will thank you for it. https://www.consumerreports.org/car-maintenance/study-shows-top-tier-gasoline-worth-extra-price/
  4. Best tires for 2017 SE with 18" wheels

    eGuru's tire recommendation is a really good one. The MXV4 is a Grand Touring, All Season style tire. As I stated previously, in another post, I just recently went from the LS2 to a Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+, which is a Ultra High Performance, All-Season. Both of the Michelin's are highly rated and well reviewed. If I may suggest going to TireRack.com and read some reviews. Figure out what criteria in a tire is most important to you and look at tires that that have high rating within the criteria you want. No matter what anyone here says, you will be the one driving on the tires for the next 50K miles make sure that your selection is the one that YOU decide on. Best of luck!!
  5. Changed battery in fob lately?
  6. 2017 Fusion SE terrible ride

    It is definitely the tire. Has nothing to do with the wheel size. You just have to find the combo that makes you happy with your car.

    Taking the tire to 38 PSI made the bumps a little rougher but, the wallowing was less noticeable. The wallowing was most noticeable when there was line in pavement running parallel with your direction of travel, especially if there was more than an 1/2 inch depth difference. I believe the cause of the wallowing is the lack of sidewall stiffness on the LS2. See my Post here. http://www.fordfusionforum.com/topic/17705-new-tires-for-the-2016-se/ I bumped up my width by a hair. Stock was 235/45R18 and I went with the 245/45R18.

    The Goodyear LS2 are horrendous tires. I had the same wheel and tire package as you when I purchased the 2016. I had same problems that you describe. I lived with it for 20k miles. I combated the wallowing by keeping the tire pressure at 38 lbs. I also had a problem with these tires holding air pressure had to check at least once a week. If I didn't, the low pressure light would come on in about 30 days. This was on all tires, not just one or two. I have recently went to Michelins and the ride is much improved, reduced rode noise and no more wallowing.
  10. Steeda Strut Brace

    Used new bolts supplied from Steeda with the Strut Bar. Original Bolts required 10mm Socket. Steeda bolts required 13 mm socket. Total time for install 15 minutes, not counting the time it took to unbox it.
  11. I see no reason to "touch the cables together". Agree, about disconnecting cables and let sit for awhile to let everything reset.

  13. 2008 SE compass stuck on N

    I believe the compass module is part of your rearview mirror.
  14. Installed the Steeda Strut Brace today. The change in the body roll in hard corning was very evident. The front definitely does not drop as much. I am very happy with the end result!
  15. Here is the Michelins on the 18's.
