A defective electronic throttle body (ETB) can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate and could have limited to no throttle response. Our technicians tall us that replacing the electronic throttle body will commonly correct this concern.

    My when driving the rench light will pop on and the car won't accelerate. The rpm jumps up and the transmission won't switch gears. Idk what to do. I was told my sensors need to be replaced. But I also recently replaced my converter belt. So just trying to find a solution until I can replace the lemon I bought.

    wrench light comes on and lose power at start up. turn off car and light goes away for a day or two. eventually the check engine light came on. Took it to shop with DST p2106. After much troubleshooting they want to replace the ETB. Haven't done it yet because they aren't 100% sure it will fix the problem and it's an $800 repair.

    Car parked overnight, starts fine, push the brake and put the car in reverse, nothing happens, drive nothing, low nothing, OBD2 code show's P0701 which says basically nothing but check connection etc. No transmission noises nothing the car has been reliable since we bought it new in 07. Transmission fluid show translucent greenish ready for change of transmission fluid and filters. The Roll resistor needs to be changed, all the normal maintenance has been done. The wrench and MIL engine are on with that code, I really don't think its the Transmission, if its the ETB is that the unit on the gas pedal itself?, I wish I had the pin out tests so i can check myself. Oh yea of course the car is paid for with no warranty.

    Mine stalls and the wrench comes on. It has stalled twice and I called Ford and they said it was a recall. I got it to the Ford Dealer and they called and said the recall does not cover vehicles over 150000 miles on it. I am so disappointed with FORD. They are not trustworthy!!!

    While driving my 2005 ford freestyle on the road, It suddenly turned the wrench light ON and seized acceleration. The car stopped in the middle of the road. I turned OFF the engine and started back ON and wrench light went away. I thought the car might turn back to normal but apparently at 2500 to 3500 RPM, the car is just revving up but no lateral movement on the ground.

    Driving along and the car jerks, wrench light comes on, and pressing the gas pedal does not make the car accelerate. Turning it off for a few minutes fixes the issue for a while and then it happens again. I am concerned for my safety as I am driving at highway speeds when this happens.
