Fusion 4-cyl

The area of the heater / dashboard makes a gurgle or sloshing noise at startup and upon acceleration. There is clearly air in the heating/cooling system that could be damaging internal parts. Ford does not currently have a repair for this issue.

We have a 2010 Ford Fusion S. we bought it in may and it have a starting up problem. When you try to start it (after holding the key in the on position for like 3 seconds...as it should be), it doesn't start and then after letting the key "go", the car keeps trying to start himself up. This makes a weird noise offcourse....and then you have to quickly turn down the key to the off position for it to stop trying. This morning was the fifth time already this happened. The last time I had to try 3 times before finally getting the car to start up. This car will be going to the service/repair dep. Soon at the dealer. I can't believe these problems occurs already, and the car is only 5 months old !
