My edge started bucking last night and the check engine
light came on. The RPMs were hovering around 1500. Earlier in the day it had done the same thing, and I put a bottle of fuel injection cleaner in it and the light went off and the bucking stopped..
JA: Does the light stay on solid or does it flicker? Any noticeable performance problems lately?
Customer: It flickered, and went off. It came on again about 5 miles later and stayed on.
JA: What year is your Edge?
Customer: Yes. Last week, the same thing happened after I filled up with regular unleaded gas (I usually use premium unleaded). I thought it was bad fuel, and after a bottle of fuel injection cleaner was put in (with a full tank of premium unleaded gas), the light went off.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: it is a 2007.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Right now it is parked at a hotel (I stopped driving it and booked a room for the night). So I do not need roadside assistance. I do have AAA.
JA: OK. Got it. 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 then connect you two.
Customer: I also smelled a tinny smell.
