out side when I put my 2011 ford
fusion into drive it sounds like water
is running through my engine. It does
it for about 5-10 seconds then it
stops. Every time I get out of my car
do what I need to do. Get back in
and start my car when I begin to
drive it sounds like water is running
through the engine. It's very loud.
Can someone please give me advise
on what it can be. I have taken it to
the dealer ship to figure out what the
problem is and they don't know.

Might not be in your engine, andjust water stuck behind the panels/dash of the car as your drains might be clogged, and it's just sloshing around. You could also have air in your coolant system possible making the noise. Find another mechanic to have a look at it.

TSB 12-1-19 sounds like the issue you are having. Assuming you have a 2.5L. take it to the dealer see if the problem you are having falls under this TSB.
