Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.
Thats usually the result of the PCM not seeing the expected readings from one of the sensors on the throttle body system.
Its impossible to say what sensor is bad or why without first getting the codes checked.
If its an intermittent issue you may be able to get it going by unhooking the battery for ten minutes then reconnecting the battery and give it a shot. If its still present after that its a permanent fault and you will have to start by getting the codes checked and go from there. If you can give me the codes I can be a lot more help.
