Some 2010-2012 Ford Fusion (and 2010-2011 Mercury Milan) vehicles equipped with the 2.5L DOHC engine may exhibit an audible noise in the heater core/instrument panel area often described as a gurgle, waterfall or percolator sound. This concern typically occurs on initial engine start 1st throttle tip-in, when the ambient temperature is lower than 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
