Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Thanks for your answer, it makes sense to me and certainly fits whats happening on my car. I need to get my Ford dealer to fix the problem so even without any codes being recorded in the computer if I pass this info on to them I'm assuming they should be able to investigate it?
I took the SMAX into the Ford dealer on Friday and the problem is exactley as you suggested, it needs a new throttle body as the air shut-off valve is sticking. Many thanks for your help, money well spent!
