2012 Edge Ecoboost Stutter
Blake Willis Ehret posted a topic in 2.0L EcoBoostBasic Info 2012 Ford Edge SEL FWD 2.0L Ecoboost 116xxx Miles Tow Package 3rd owner 245/50/R20 Spark notes on the story: Purchased early January 2017 With the known DOOR AJAR issue. Took to dealer for this repair and asked for any recommended service and I requested a transmission fluid change as well. Dealer advised not to change Transmission fluid as "it may actually cause more problems" but advised on a spark plug change. According to dealer they did an inspection on everything else (fluids,Belts,timing, Filters ETC) and it all appeared to be fine. But I'm no mechanic so how the hell do I know. Replaced the plugs (for an outrageous cost might I add seeing as the 2.0 only needs 4 at 3$ a plug) and the door ajar issue running me about $475. Now the engine has started to stutter a bit but only at low RPM. Almost feels to me like the engine may be misfiring on one cylinder but not all of the time and only when I am stepping on the gas lightly. so far no engine lights or warnings. and it seems to be running perfect at higher rpm and highway speeds. typically i experience this issue in the morning when i first start driving the car and keep in mind it had been strange weather here in KY all the way from 20 degrees to 65 in the last week or so. I had mentioned in a previous post that i had thought this may be turbo lag but someone dismissed that theory. Any help would be appreciated. Best Regards, B
New To The Forum! Ecoboost turbo lag?
Blake Willis Ehret posted a topic in Welcome Forum!Hey Guys, I know many forums require an OP in one of these welcome forums before you can post in certain topic forums so here it goes. just purchased my first FORD and so far I am amazingly pleased. 2012 Ford Edge SEL FWD 2.0L Ecoboost 116xxx miles Purchased for 10.5 which I thought was a steal. did my research and already knew about the common DOOR AJAR issue which I had replaced at the Dealer for about $300. but I got the dealership to knock off $500 for it so I felt very confident about this. i have put 2k miles on it since I purchased in early January 2017 and have had no problems since. I did however have a minor concern that I have noticed. and this might require moving this thread to another region on the website but i have been getting a little engine stutter since i had the spark plugs replaced at the dealership. i am not sure whether to attribute this to turbo lag or if the spark plugs may not have been seated properly by the dealership. this only happens around 1k rpm in first gear. any thoughts or info would be appreciated and I am sorry if this thread is in the wrong area.
