When you say your mustang is in limp mode do you have a wrench light on.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago

Yes I have a wrench. Error code P0010, P0102, P0443, P0446

Ford Mechanic: James, Ford Technician replied 3 years ago
Hmm. Usually the wrench light indicates a different issue. Like a defective throttle body. Are these codes still current after you replaced the parts above?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago

Yes. I even changed the plugs

Ford Mechanic: James, Ford Technician replied 3 years ago
It sounds like a woring concern. Do you have a scan tool that can monitor data?

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.
