amy running issues? is it still under factory warranty?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No running issues that I know about. It is not under warranty.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Every time I get an answer you are adding money. Is this $26 dollars added to the $31 I have already paid.

The wrench light is indicating a fault exists either in the electronic throttle control or electronic transmission control systems.These systems would need to be scanned for codes to determine which system and area is needing service.. have it scanned if its transmission related its coverd under extended coverage because its a known issue

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.
