Sounds like a problem with the intake gaskets/o-rings.The problem is more pronounced when it is cold out and the engine is stone cold,the o-ring gaskets are as hard as a rock and suck air passed them.

It depends on where the pinpoint tests lead to after you retrieve the trouble code/codes from the pcm.Might be as simple as a throttle body,or tp sensor.
Question Answered: problem with electronic throttle control
August 05, 2010, 09:29 PM
you need to have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes in the pcm.More than likely a throttle body concern or throttle position sensor if it is a 5.4l engine.if dtc p2135 is present and you have a 4.6 engine,you will need a throttle body because the tp sensor is built into it.5.4 engine tp sensors are replaceable.

you need a multi-function switch.this is extremely common.I am not sure of the part cost,they used to be about 150.00 but inflation and time are our worst enemies.labor is usually 1.50 hrs at whatever the shop rate is.if you are somewhat handy you can replace it yourself.

Problem Reported: Fuel filling issues due to manufacturing defect in fuel tank

According to TSB 05-15-12

Some 2005 Mustang vehicles built before 4/26/2005, may exhibit the fuel tank being slow or difficult to fill. The condition may be described as, repeated rapid shut-offs of the filling station pump nozzle, or multiple nozzle shut-offs when attempting to fill the fuel tank. The condition may be due to the tank vapor venting system inside the fuel tank.

Some pump nozzle shut-offs may be due to the filling station pump delivering the fuel too quickly. This is normal.

A new fuel tank with a revised design is available.

Problem Reported: No start and theft light flashing, due to damaged wiring.

Car Review: 2005 Ford Escape Hybrid
August 18, 2010, 09:57 PM
only a couple of issues,1. coolant pump failure. 2. auxiliary blend door actuator failure. both issues will cause vehicle to enter failure management mode,wrench light on,vehicle will barely move.other than these concerns,the only thing I do on these vehicles is scheduled maintenance.
