2012 Ford Fusion SEL 2.5L
I have a 2012 Ford Fusion SEL 2.5L. I just bought it 2 weeks ago, change the transmission fluid following YouTube videos and also the spark plugs.
- First question: When checking the trans fluid the lever mark is different depending on which way you insert the dipstick in. The fluid is at different levels on both sides of the dipstick. If I insert it one way it shows between the fill range and the back of the stick the fluid is higher. If I turn it 90 degrees and check it shows on the Full line and lower on the backside. I decided to go with the side that shows full since I put 5 quarts and I don't want to overfill the transmission. Even on the nonfull measure... it is still close to full and in the fill area.
- Question two: The transmission seems to have recorded driving habits from previous owners and the transmission has a light delay shifting. I have an ELM327 WiFi OBD2 that I can use with Forscan. The ELM327 v1.5 does not have the switch/toggle option for high or medium programming. Can I clear the adaptive driving safely with my OBD2 reader? or Do I need the one with the switch/toggle? I don't know if that programming option requires the high or the medium options.
