problem #1

May 202011

Explorer Eddie Bauer V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 107,000 miles

Was driving down the road and the engine fail safe mode light came on. I pulled over, shut off the engine, restarted and it went out. I drove about 10 mi, it came on again. I let the car sit for about 2 hrs, light disappeared. The light came on again today 6/6/11 on my way home from work (1 mi). I love the explorer, but I'm beginning to lose trust in ford products. From what I've read, it could be the throttle position sensor or throttle body.......$$$$$$, so I'm frustrated. I have always maintained the car, oil change, engine service on a regular basis. Never have driven the car hard.
