Question about 2006 Ford Five Hundred
I am about to replace the throttle body on my 500, and the literature mentions a 'relearn' procedure that should be done after replacing it. Does anyone know what the relearn process is? I have only been able to find vague non specific references in my web search so far.
The technical service bulletin about this issue says that the software is glitched and that after cleaning the throttle body, the Power Train Module (PCM) needs reprogramming with Ford's new software. I'm not sure if any other shops have access to the Ford software, so I think you may have to take it to your dealership. The learning that the other answers talk about are just general resets.

Disconnect the negative battery connection overnight, reconnect and drive normally. It should relearn by itself.

Look in your manual at battery replacement. It will tell you the procedure to follow after replacement. The first time I replaced a battery and did not know about this procedure the car ran like #%*^! It wanted to stall, run rough etc. This procedure is done right in your driveway.

Burn the lowest octane that you can, based on the specs. Ford has found when people run premium fuel, starting was delayed.
It is actually the lowest octane that has the most explosive power. Higher octane burns SLOWER.

stage 1 tighten to 30 ft pounds
stage 2 tighten 90 degrees
stage 3 loosen one full turn
stage 4 tighten to 30 ft pounds
stage 5 tighten 90 degrees
stage 6 tighten 90 degrees
this is per mitchell on demand courtesy of ford specs on the lft and right head.
for some reason there are no torque specs on mitchell for connecting rods and mains.
