My 2008 Taurus X Eddie Bauer was turning a corner

Customer Question

My 2008 Taurus X Eddie Bauer was turning a corner and all of a sudden it seemed to drag a little and the "wrench" light came on briefly. I pulled over, no light, then started to drive as if nothing else happened. I read that is may be a throttle control or powertrain problem. I have 76,000 miles on the car.
JA: The mechanics have tons of experience in that area. Are those all of the "symptoms"?
Customer: The loose gas cap came on a few days ago, I replaced it with a Motorcraft part from ford and they said it will be a few cycles before the light turned off, we just filled the tank, and the gas cap light went off, then THIS happened with the dragging/wrench light episode
JA: Anything else I can tell the Ford Mechanic before I connect you two?
Customer: that should be it. Is this going to cost me anything? I am under warranty.
JA: Got it. Let's get this figured out. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and connect you two. You'll be on the road in no time.
