Most common problems Ford Kuga faults & solutions

Battery drain

Multiple car owners have reported that even when their battery is fully charged, it is completely drained the next day and requires a jump start. The likely root of this problem is that the battery has reached the end of its service life and you need a new car battery. For fuel-powered models, this can easily be resolved by replacing the battery, which you may be able to do yourself.

A knocking sound coming from the rear of the car

If you notice a knocking noise from the rear of the car while driving, the culprit could be the rear door striker rubbing against something. You can quickly fix this by simply greasing the door striker.

Exhaust problems

Symptoms may include blue exhaust smoke, poor engine performance, roughly idling and increased fuel consumptions. In this case, the EGR valve may be faulty, causing all of the gases to escape rather than circulate through the engine. You may also be faced with a clogged or damaged diesel particulate filter (DPF). Symptoms of Ford Kuga DPF filter include black smoke coming from the exhaust pipe, a poor fuel economy, and difficulty starting problems.

Blue smoke from exhaust

To fix this fault, you may have to replace the valves or filter. If the clogged DPF is not able to clear itself through ‘regeneration’, it will need to get checked by a professional. Some garages are able to clean it through what is known as ‘forced regeneration. However, there is no guarantee that this will work effectively.

Clutch problems

One of the key faults for Ford Kuga models is a burning clutch. If there’s a really strong smell of burning from the clutch and a loud banging sound, you’ll need to get it checked as soon as possible. The cause is most often a damaged clutch pressure plate.

A greasy windscreen

This is a much less severe issue although it still poses a potential safety risk. These car models have been known to have a greasy or smudged windscreen as a result of defective wiper blades. If cleaning the glass and blade doesn’t seem to be working, you’ll need to install new ones.

Overheating

Several issues with overheating have been reported in the past, leading to engine meltdowns in some cases. It may be caused by coolant leaks or cracked cylinder heads, for example. The heat may cause the oil sump to crack, resulting in oil leaks. If you experience similar problems, take the car to your nearest Ford dealer or garage for a diagnosis.

Engine overheating

Transmission faults

It’s been noted that the 2014 models sometimes have issues with the system that controls the automatic transmission preventing it from shifting gear. One simple way to fix dual-clutch control failure is to turn the engine off and on again to reboot the control unit. However, this may only be a short-term solution. If this doesn’t work, you’ll need to get it fixed by a professional.

Finding replacement parts online is one of the best ways to save money on repairs. You can simply enter your vehicle registration number into the search bar to find compatible parts for your specific vehicle. If you're looking for new car parts, check out the Ford Kuga parts catalogue here.
