Hello, Please give a moment to look up your code? does the vehicle restart and run ok?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Ford Mechanic: James, Ford Technician replied 1 year ago

Just making sure and the P2104 is an ETB or electronic throttle body fault forced idle. This is an electrical concern in the throttle body. The fix is to replace the electronic throttle body assembly on the vehicle and this will also give you back your power as well.

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.

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.
