2005 Ford Freestyle ProblemsCheck Engine Light and Poor Throttle Response
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.
If the rear brakes wear out abnormally fast, this can be caused by defective rear brake pads. The rear wheels may also appear to become excessively dusty. They should be replaced with revised brake pads, and all wheel drive (AWD) vehicles should replace front brake pads as well.
Binding of the shifter slider can make the transmission shifter difficult to move. Replacing the bezel should fix this problem.
2005 Ford Freestyle Questionsmy check engine light just came on, how do I check to see what is wrong or reset (2 answers)
the check engine light just came on tonight
it seems to be only when engine is cold and I drive a short distance shut it off and then try to drive it again. We changed fuel pressure regulator and a broken wire to the regulator ok for a little while now problem again.
Then after shut down and restart light goes out and car runs good again. This happens a few times a week at least. Do I really need a new throttle body?
