New throttle body replaced at dealer

So I went into the dealer for my tune up and I told them about a jerking from the rear end. So they tested something out and they said my throttle body was bad and replaced it for free under warranty. On the paper it says performed pin point test open circuit in throttle body. Does anybody know what that means? Also it sometimes still jerks a bit but not as often. I have noticed more top end power and a much smoother acceleration especially when slightly accelerating on turns.the car runs like new but I've noticed a little less low end acceleration. Well the point is does anyone know what was wrong with my old throttle body and can I get the car to perform a little better with this one and get more low end like my old one used to do? Maybe recalibration?

Ur right I still can because they are also replacing my dash for discoloration they are just waiting on parts. Either way all I know is I got a brand new free throttle body.

You didn't get a free throttle body. You had a defective part replaced.

tune up? Something the dealer suggested?

om the (hopefully) helpful side:

look in the manual for idle re-learn
if it's an auto there is some type of adaptive learning response that can be reset by disconnecting battery for a bit or there is a fuse that can be pulled (#47?)

If that was my car I would bring it back to them until they figured it out. Not being sarcastic but they already replaced your throttle body but the car is still making the same jerking but less frequently. Pff I would use that warranty as much as you could. Hell you paid for it. Bring it back, tell the dealer to fix it...I wish my GT was still under warranty, I have a couple things I find to my benefit.. Good luck

Agree with Solar. Be straight with them and ask for them to figure it out 100%, not 99%!

I would have sworn the factory throttle body was only around $40 cheaper (4 years ago) than the ones BBK sell. According to Ford Factory Parts web site they sell for $65. When Ford replaced your throttle body, they weren't out of a lot of money

Ok, I've been a Ford tech since 1977. With that said, most of us (Tech's) would love to fix all your concerns. My biggest problem with fixing them right the first time is " Not getting all the information" Make sure all your driveability concerns are passed onto the repairing Tech. Best part of my job, I'm the guy who gets to inspect & drive all new Mustangs.

Right, can't fix something you're not aware of being wrong.
Way to make us jealous Doc! Lol

The jerking isn't that big of a concern to me because I still have a long time left on my aftermarket warranty even if the ford one expires. I really haven't even noticed anything in the last couple of drives. But its probably not even related to the throttle body. Overall I'm happy with this dealership and their fix though because my last dealership wouldn't even listen to me when I told them something didn't feel right in the cars acceleration. This dealership actually listens to customers and writes down everything you tell them feels wrong then they check it out. Either way i'm waiting on parts they ordered for me and i'll try to see if I can make the car do what it was doing and if I can then I will take a tech out on a test drive or a service advisor so they can see what I'm talking about because I'm not very good at explaining it. Like it feels kind of like a bump forward and it feels like its from the rear axle. At times it feels like something hitting the car from behind when coming out of a stoplight.

The bump feel when coming to a stop is pretty much normal. My automatic has done it from day one.

Does it almost feel like someone taking a sledgehammer to the back of the frame and like jolting you forward a bit?

In a way yeah it does feel like that Trevor it feels like the car behind me is hitting me. And it's kind of funny because the first couple times I noticed it i was like woah a car just hit me only to look back and see that there was either no car behind or a car really far away.

lol I have the same reaction. It scares me when I'm in traffic. My theory on that jolt is the transmission trying to shift but you aren't quite going fast enough for it so go smoothly. Cause it doesn't happen all the time usually when I accelerate and then let go of the gas right as it's shifting like in traffic. Do you have aftermarket gears or a tune?
