This article supersedes TSB 06-11-8 to update the Service Procedure and model years.

Some 2006-2007 Fusion, Milan and 2006 Zephyr vehicles equipped with the 3.0L engine may exhibit a customer concern of a vibration or buzzing noise perceived to be coming from the engine compartment or instrument panel (IP) area. The noise may be heard during light tip-ins at 25-50 MPH (40-80 Km/h). The most common occurrence is at approximately 50 MPH (64 Km/h) at 1500 RPM. The buzzing noise is more prominent in cold ambient temperatures.
