One morning my Ford started running rough.a rough idol. Shaking in the body. The check engine light started blinking. I took it to a mechanic that morning to check the computer. The mechanic stated it read as a bank one miss fire.I replaced the bank one coil and spark plug from the mechanic. The car still drove rough.I was on my way to the the dealer the next day, three or four miles away, when the car shut down on the highway between two busy exits. I lost power and control of the vehicle. Thanks to the state police, I was pushed to a safer location.I was towed to the dealer from there.I wasn't told the power-train module needed replacement until after all the coils and spark plugs were replaced two days later.

Edge

  • 84,457 miles
While driving on a city street and on a state road transmission will act and sound like it is slipping or not engaging in gear and sometimes will only work in reverse.when problem occurs vehicle will lose all power and engine will rev up but vehicle will not move. I have had it towed to dealer and have taken it in to dealer, they say they cannot duplicate the the problem. They also told me that when it happens I need to pull over somewhere safe and shut the car off and let the "computer/ sensors " reset and that will "take care" of the problem. The problem is getting progressively worse as time goes on. I am afraid if this happens in traffic someone is going to get seriously hurt or killed as there is no power to get off the road and out of traffic
