Thanks, ***** ***** in your case the electronic throttle body is dirty or is faulty and to blame for what you have experienced here.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

Do you think it could be the throttle peddle position sensor
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 8 months ago

The TP sensor is on the throttle body, yes it is possible to blame. The codes for the warning light that came on will tell you what is wrong.

If more help is needed let me know, if not then Thanks You for rating my response.

Chris
