Ford Falcon Futura: If I dont let my falcon sit for long enough

This answer was rated:

If I don't let my falcon sit for long enough or I take of to quickly when it has been sitting for a long period of time the engine light comes on and it goes into limp mode I have been told it is a sensor and it is running rough where can I go to get the problem fixed
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.

I would verify first with another mechanic that the check engine light that is coming on is for sure caused by a failing accelerator pedal position sensor.This sensor can be common to fail on several different models as I have seen and usually has to be replaced as an entire throttle body unit on the engine.

Second hand usually means used and this may be what the mechanic/electrician was speaking of as I don't know of a particular repair facility that can repair yours for you.You can get either a new one from a dealer or possibly a parts store or try and locate a used one to correct this issue,keep in mind a used one may already have the same problem or may fail sooner then a new one would.I would have this re checked to verify for sure this is what needs to be done to resolve this here.
