???????????????????????????????????????????????

Tell me, The shop never checked the codes.

When that wrench showed it threw a code. The dealers idiot parts changer should have checked if the CPU had a code showing. That is a serious safety issue and should have been tracked down. What the heck did the dealer think you were driving A TOYOTA?


If the throttle sticks it could cause a serious accident. What the hell is wrong with these dealers now-A-days???

Carefully clean the TB,,get someone to hold it wide open so you can clean it real good,,I use a citrius orange cleaner ,,but they have throttle body cleaner..If that TB hangs up just a fraction it will do that..Ive done alot of them and it fix the problem

Do you guys think that mustangs are unreliable or is it just my mustang or have previous mustangs been unreliable because Ive only had 38000 miles on mine and its already starting to cause problem btw LOVE the mustang to death but really hate the customer service

Customer service is all dealer. Trying a different dealership is all you can do.

Its the electronics that unreliable,,pretty much all cars are going to have problems..We have fords and chevys,,and they all have their own problems,,Mine is a 06 model and i havent had any problems,,I did buy it used so im not sure of the issues it may have had when it was new..Ive never dealt with dealerships or shops,,I think maybe you need to find a more professional dealership to go to

+1 on the throttle plate or tps. If you have a volt meter, check the signal wire and power as you push the throttle. You should notice a rise in voltage. I think ford uses .2-4.8v... Not 100% tho
