Customer Question
I have a 2007...

I have a 2007 freestyle. I replaced the throttle body and while driving it will buck / cut out at about 30-40 mph . The dash light has a wrench lit up. Prior to me replacing TB it was revving up as you put the brake on or were coasting.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

No

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

Yes i have done machanics most of my life but do not have technical equipment

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

Car ran fine ,prior to the acceleration coming to a stop or coasting with the original throttle body

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.
