I have a 2005 fairmont BA which was reving unevenly when I was stationery and then when I was in drive basically driving itself without my foot on the accelerator. It then lost power and I had to quickly find a place to pull over and stop the car. The throttle light was on. After I turned the car on and off it was OK. No light and no problems. I am concerned because we live in a regional area and my son and I drive the car on the highway every day and the loss of power was worrying. What should I tell the mechanic?
Is it only a ford dealer that has this scan tool or would most mechanics have this? I live in a rural area and dont have access to a wide choice of places to go but can access a ford mechanic around 65kms away.
