Engine light went on. Car had been running somewhat rough at low idle for prior two days. Light stays on. Autozone analyzer reports IRMC valve stuck. Will take car to my mechanic in two days.

After slowing to take a turn the engine chugged, then lost all acceleration. Pressing the gas pedal didn't make the engine rev. Check engine light came on. I stopped, put the car in park, then back in drive with engine still running - failed to engage throttle. I turned the car off, let it sit for a minute, started it again and it was fine. Dropped it at our local mechanic who diagnosed the problem as a defective throttle body. He told me Ford was aware of this issue but there has been no formal recall order yet. He also told me that getting replacement parts was very hard and even Ford has backlog. Estimates a minimum of two weeks before he'll even know if he can get the part.
