The Ford Five Hundred is a full-size car produced by Ford from 2004 to 2007. Based on the D3 platform and assembled at the Chicago Assembly, the car was exclusively designed as a four-door sedan with straightforward styling. The Five Hundred featured a spacious interior cabin with high H-point seating, providing an improved visibility and access. Safety measures included a modified version of the Side Impact Protection System (SIPS), new front frame rails, and multiple airbag types. The vehicle was powered by a 203 hp 3.0L Duratec V6 engine, coupled with a 6-speed Aisin automatic transmission for front-wheel-drive versions or a ZF CVT for all-wheel-drive versions. The sedan featured a 112.9 inches wheelbase, a length of 200.7 inches, a width of 74.5 inches, and a height of 61.5 inches. The interior boasted high-seated front and back seats, with a folding back seat feature to supplement the 21 cubic foot trunk. This allowed the model to accommodate cargo up to ten feet long. The Five Hundred was categorized into three trim levels: SE, SEL, and Limited. It underwent minor changes in 2006, including a new navigation radio, an enhanced traction control system, and the addition of standard side airbags. It also introduced a Chrome Package, boasting 18-inch eight-spoke alloy wheels and a chrome trim mesh grille. Production was discontinued in 2007, with a concept version introduced the following year, featuring a 263 hp 3.5L V6 and a new 6-speed automatic transmission.
The 2005 Ford Five Hundred has exhibited two major issues: throttle body malfunctions and significant transmission slippage between gears. The throttle body malfunction causes unpredictable surges in both drive and reverse modes, which are intensified when the air conditioning is on. Replacing the throttle body hasn't resolved the issue, suggesting possible electronic glitches or a need for Powertrain Control Module (PCM) software upgrades. Highlighted error codes include P2104, P2111, and P2112, with the latter two indicating the throttle being stuck both open and closed. Given the electronic design of the vehicle that doesn't use a physical cable between the gas pedal and the throttle, a defective sensor might be a contributing factor. Transmission problems are characterized by sudden jolts during acceleration or reverse and potential disengagements during crucial driving moments. These issues emphasize the potential need for transmission replacements, irregularities in throttle control, and inconsistent RPM readings. The anti-engine roll mount, typically found near the throttle body, has been identified as a possible source of the jerking sound during downshifting, especially after 70,000 miles. Diagnostic advice from Ford suggests PCM/TCM reprogramming for vehicles under 20,000 miles and a valve body replacement for those over this mileage. Additionally, if the transmission fluid test indicates the presence of metallic contaminants, a comprehensive transmission evaluation is recommended. Some vehicles, particularly those with AWD and CVT transmission, display unusual behavior, such as resisting forward motion while displaying abrupt jerks in reverse. Dark transmission fluid signifies significant wear, and suggested solutions include fluid and filter replacements along with specialized reprogramming.
