I took my '06 Freestyle to the Ford dealership this afternoon and they ran my VIN. I am qualified to have my throttle body replaced on the recall. My car was lunging forward at slow speeds and if I was at a stop sign or red light it would lunge. I am so glad that Ford is doing this recall and I get my car fixed. Vancouver, Washington USA

I took mine in on the 2nd. I did not have any service notes. However last night the car would not start so this morning I am waiting for a jump. I am now wondering if the repair caused an issue.

#95 of 107 Won't Start and Motor Mount
Jan 11, 2013 (7:40 am)
I have a 2005 Freestyle with 105,000 miles. Replaced the brakes a month ago and now I am being told the top motor mount needs to be replaced. There is nothing left of it. To make things worse I cannot get the car to start when it is cold outside! I have replaced the battery and had the electrical system checked but still nothing. It takes 40 plus cranks to get the engine to turn over. It wants to start but dies everytime like it is being chocked. Any clues?
#96 of 107 Throttle Body Service

I took my 2006 Freestyle in for the recall and when I got it back there was no change. Check engine light was still on and my car surged and then stalled almost immediately upon leaving the dealership parking lot. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

If the cleaning didn't work then it needs to be replaced. If the dealer will not do it, call the number on the letter about the recall. We replaced ours twice before the recall and having the same issues again. Going to take it into the dealer for cleaning and reset. Fingers crossed.

Did they do the computer reset after the cleaning?

I've had issues too about not starting right away but that was after the throttle body problems.

if the cleaning never worked it more than likely needs replacing..Ford should be taking care of it. Good luck..
FYI...I had a 2005 and replaced transmission, and still after replacing ( total blow out on tranny ) i had ford read the errors with check engine light and
wrench light, ford told me without a doubt that the throttle body needed replacing cleaning will not work unless it was next to new or new. plus and this is a big (((( PLUS )))) after any cleaning ( throttle body ) or replacing of the transmission the Main computer needs to be flashed.. i have had quite a bit of ford interaction with this as i am on my second freestyle with the first 2005 having the transmission and throttle body being replaced..... I now have a 2007 freestyle and had a $10 or $20 berring go in the transmission ( making noise caught it this time by hearing same noise in the 2007 as the 2005 i let the noise go on to long and blowed up the berring. causing catistrophic expolsion of transmission ( 2005) i caught it in the 2007 and and ended up dishing out another $700 bucks ( from pocket ) and warrenty picked up the other $2500 Wow lucky....Now i have the throttle body replaced at fords cost and flashing of computer...rides like a champ..good luck.

I was wondering if you were able to obtain a refund, I also spent $1000 for the repair but Ford refuses to provide a refund.
