Customer Question
Goes into limp mode...

Goes into limp mode & engine light is on

Mechanic's Assistant: Has your vehicle stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code?

No but it did feel like it was going to earlier. Not that i know of

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

Territory TX 2007

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, but depending what it is, will try. Nothing yet... cant really afford to put it in anyway, but cant afford to not have it running either...

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Had the gear selector cable replaced about 10days ago

Hi. I have a 07 territory tx auto.
Gear change isn't smooth, takes a while for it to find the gear sometimes, revs go up and shudders when i put my foot down. Engine light has just come on, thought it was going to stall earlier.
Ford Mechanic: Steve, Automotive Expert replied 8 months ago

how many miles on the vehicle? has the transmission been serviced?

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.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
