I just bought a used 2005 Ford Freestyle yesterday with 159,000 miles on it (the car looks very nice and loaded). Today, I drove it to work for the first time. Halfway (20 minutes driving), I lost power with the "wrench" sign and "Engine" lights on. It was so dangerous driving in highway next or in-front of speeding cars and trucks. I pulled over to the right side just in time before the car came to a complete stop.
I got the car towed to Jerry's Ford dealership in Annandale, Virginia. They said I need to replace the Throttle Body with the gasket too for $942.
I purchased a warranty with The Penn Warranty Corporation (PWC), but unfortunately this type of problem will not be covered under the warranty.
After reading this forum, I don' t know if I should tried to clean it first.
I just hope, this will be my last problem with this car.
Any other recurring problem I should be aware of this car?

Our 2006 is on it's 3rd throttle body, just had the recall work done last week, cleaning and reprogramming computer, because it was surging and stalling again. Our air conditioner went out two years ago. Can't wait to replace this car.
