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.
Electrolysis can cause repeated failures of the heater core and radiator. The diagnosing technician should check for voltage present in the coolant, with the battery disconnected, because electrical current in the coolant causes electrolysis. Corroded or deteriorated parts should be replaced, and the coolant should be flushed. Ground straps can be added to help prevent future corrosion of components.
Ford Freestyle Questionswrench and check engine light come on there is supposedly 11 codes poor accelera (1 answer)
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?
At highway speeds air seems to work fine cold air does come out sitting at a light some cool air comes out. If I drive local in 1st gear the engine revs over 2 and the air seems as if it is working fine
