Question about 2005 Ford Freestar
When I am driving on the expressway in the winter my 2005 freestar will cut out like it is going to stall. It has not stalled yet nor has it been fixed yet. My dealership has installed a computer to read the problem however it cannot find anything wrong. The problem continues every winter usually when it is snowing. It is as if my car has the hiccups. The PCM was replaced with only 14 miles on the car and since then has been replaced along with the Mass Air flow sensor (twice). The Techs cant figure out what is wrong. The problem does not occur in the summer only winter and usually in the snow. It feels like something is missing or a sensor is not working properly for a second.
Check to see if the gasket between the windsheild and the plastic shroud is sealing tight to the glass. If it is not then the problem is that the plug on the PCM is getting wet and causing your problem. Have your Ford garage look at the TSB's on your Freestar and they will fnd the one that Ford issued long ago on how to fix this problem. After they do the Ford fix then get some sealent and glue that little rubber strip to the windsheild to ensure that the water can't get in there anymore and this will probable solve your problem. It did on mine.
