    HELP! Clearing codes through a 'Drive Cycle'?

    Thanks, yep it's in the shop now. I bought the ODBII scanner this weekend at Harbor Freight, and I will be replacing the battery too. Good news is it's still running. Thanks again for all your help.

    HELP! Clearing codes through a 'Drive Cycle'?

    HELP! Clearing codes through a 'Drive Cycle'?

    Sorry I wasn't clear. The check engine light is off and has been off since the second trip to the shop when I brought it home. It did sit in my driveway for more than 24 hours after that. So it was a rough start this morning and that's when the rough/strange idle happened too. It's not had any...

    Ford 2.5L Engine Vehicles - Throttle Body Issues?

    Anyone know about the Throttle Body Issues that have been documented in some Ford vehicles? Any specifics on which models, years, and engines these were? I've read about them online for Fusions and some full size Transits and Transit Connects. I'm researching for a potential TC purchase.
