Hi Scotty, I’m having problems with my mother’s 2006 Ford Freestyle. The vehicle would run awesome, and then suddenly without warning it would throw service engine light and place vehicle in a limp mode. Turn the car off, and wait a little bit, it would go back to normal no problems. We had previously taken it to a mechanic, they werent able to diagnosis the problem and suggested clearing the code anytime it does it. We did this for a while, and it work up until a lil over a month ago and it was gone into this limp mode permanently. I can clear the codes, but once ya turn the ignition on even without cranking it, the codes come back. Any suggestions?
yes, listen to jacob
The CVT Transmission is going out. I have one too, and it's THIRD transmission is dying. It's got only 164,000 miles and the third transmission only lasted 10,000 miles! Get a factory rebuilt tranny. They're the only ones that last.
I can also send full diagnostic reports i pulled with my reader if needed
