Thanks.

Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.

.

The code, (P061B) is actually for an internal control module torque calculation. Normally to do with the electronic throttle controls. (see attached diagram).

.

To be sure what may have set the code, the diagnostics, (pinpoint test) would have to be done. If it is running okay at the present time, there should be no problem with driving it.

.

If you give me your email address, I can get the pinpoint test instructions for it and put it in a PDF file, (it is rather large) and send it to your email address for as little as possible.

.

You will just have to accept the additional service offer and ENTER your email address in the “ENTER CONTACT INFO” section so that I can see it, Thanks

I tried to accept the 6 dollar offer, but it would not let me. I would have though my initial payment would have covered all of this, so a little peeved.
Ford Mechanic: Super Mechanic, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I see, sorry for any site issues. Let me see if I can send it again. That just happens to be company policy, thanks.

In fact, as I said, "I don't get paid until the answer(s) are rated", thanks. I might be able to put the test in a dropbox and send a link to it.

Please put it someplace where I can get to it. My son just got out of garage, and they are talking about a lot of work to find the problem, and there was no mention of a 'pinpoint' test.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
He did say, that just before this happened, it didn't seem to shift right. He has now driver about 5 miles, and the wrench light is off, check engine is still on, and it is shifting normally.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
You still there?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I am still trying to accept that offer...
Customer reply replied 2 years ago

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.
