Question about 2005 Ford Freestar

1 Answer

Stops and goes

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.

Causes stalling


seems like flooding
you remove spark plugs. see them soaked with fuel. flooding.
does car restart easy? never stated.
if you lose spark , the ECU cuts fueling, but not 100% of time.
so spark tests are first.
also make sure the EGR is not stuck open.
when the car starts to stall.
can the fast right foot , prevent it?
if yes, is it easy to do.or is it fighting you hard. or not possible.
now you have some ways and means.

If you put your foot on the brake and your car stalls, that is a symptom of your brake booster going bad.

For it stalling on the freeway that could be a few different things, Idle Air Control Valve, the Mass air flow sensor

I have a Semi-Automatic 2005 BMW e46 318i. The engine randomly cuts out (stalls) when decellerating, coming to a stop, or when stopped. Other than this problem the car drives fine, and the engine starts up...


The problem you are having sounds suspiciously like the torque converter is not disengaging to allow your engine to spin freely until you are ready to accelerate.If when decelerating or coming to a stop you feel a jerking sensation similar to driving a vehicle with a manual transmission and bringing the vehicle to a stop without depressing the clutch, then the problem you are having is faulty Torque Converter Control Solenoid or a bad Torque Converter itself. If you have any other questions please contact me here. Good luck.

2005 freestar driving down the road suddenly starts stumbling rpms drop and emission light comes on then dies. Scaned it but says nothing is wrong


The check engine light will always come on when the engine stalls.It could be your fuel filter needs replaced or your fuel pump is going out. The fuel pumps can heat up and stop working, then after they have a chance to cool off they will work just fine until they get hot again.

Wont keep idle, car stalls out


I had this same problem on my 2005 monte carlo, took mechanic a while to figure out it was the idle air control valve. They also replace the idle air control motor.

2005 g6 stalling


I would suggest checking your wiring (core wire on the distributor, plug wires and the negative battery ground) I would imagine that the forward motion of the vehicle is possibly making your wires lose connectivity and making the car stall. Just a thought though.

2005 300c has 26,000 miles on it. When we fill it with gas it stalls. We do not overfill nor do we wait until the pump clicks off. We stop before that. Spent $600 with local dealer in May, filled it 6...


Same problem with my 2005 300c. It's happened five times to me, including stalling on the expressway. I looked at the posts. Too many differing views - without a real solution. Talk to three Chrysler mechanics and got three different "solutions." As much as I love this car (bought new June 2004), I'm ready to get rid of it and get a BMW or a Benz.
