JA: Let's get those codes to the mechanic so you two can figure this issue out ASAP. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: rough idle, runs for about 5 min and stops and the brakes are hard to use and wont engage like before
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Thanks, I'm goingto have to open this back up to other experts for you. The only testing information I have involves the use of a Ford breakout box which is a dealer only diagnostic tool.

Hello again Chris here,1) When customers come to Just Answer the website and the experts want them to have a great 5 star experience.2) We also want them to be so pleased that they come back for future needs.3) I have the feeling you were not pleased with my help because the post was not rated and or you need me to help more. If so please do reply.4) I have an option for an additional fee to upload diagrams, repair guides, find a repair facility, or call you if that would help. Thanks Chris
