2007 Ford Freestyle. Consumer states vehicle had a burning smell and stopped running while driving the consumer stated the catalytic converter was replaced. A few days later, the burning smell returned and the vehicle stopped running. The dealer replaced the catalytic converter again. The consumer stated the catalytic converter was replaced three times. Also, the manifold, gasket and seals had to be replaced because they melted due to heat. Three months later. The oil light illuminated. The service mechanic informed the consumer there was no oil in the engine and he was unable to see any type of leak. The consumer was informed the entire exhaust system needed to be replaced as well as the ignition coil and fans, because the vehicle would probably overheat.

I own a 2007 Ford Freestyle. The car will accelerate or lurch forward when the brake is pressed. It happens when the ac is on and the temperature outside is hot. The car will then idle low and then shut off. The wrench light on the dashboard will light up. Once I restart the car, the wrench light goes off and the car runs normal until I come to a stoplight and then the car lurches forward again. It also happens when you put the car in reverse when the air is on and the outside temperature is hot.
