Hello and Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be helping you with your question today.

 

The code you have 2106 is a very common problem on the F150. It leads to a faulty TPS Sensor on the throttle body. If you have already replaced the throttle body with a Ford one it should have the new TPS installed. If not, I would install the Ford TPS kit.

 

PART NUMBERPART NAME
3L5Z-9B989-AATPS (Kit)

 

Along with the tps being replaced, The Powertrain Control Module or PCM will need to be re-calibrated to the latest Ford update to also take care of the problem. I would recommend just having the PCM reprogramed first before doing anything.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
