Question about 2005 Ford Freestar
I have experienced the same issue as a couple other I've seen. The van cuts out for a second or "bucks" and the worse the winter storm the worse and more often it occurs. The first time it happened it wasn't the weather conditions but how long the vehicle was running. It did not matter if it was moving or idling. I took it back to the dealership and they had it for 3 days trying to figure out the problem. I after telling them to start it, let it sit for a 1/2 hour then drive it on the highway for 5-10 miles. It ended up being the EGR valve. I didn't have a problem until last winter again. Only when it was below freezing temps and even worse when it was snowing badly. Can't figure out why its doing that. Temps warm up, problem goes away.
You might have to let Ford do another diagnostic.I would suspect MAF sensor, maybe wiring to it or just dirty. don-ohio

Ford had a recall/ extended coverage on the fuel pumps in the focus vehicles. Do you know if this was done? If not call a ford dealer with your Vehicle identification number (located in drivers door jam or on registration) and they can let you know if it was done. The concern with the fuel pumps was that they would stop working when they got hot. The replacement pumps were free. It can't hurt to call and ask.

Don't waste your money on all season tires if you are going to be wading through deep snow. Get a good aggresive mud and snow tread for winter driving. I've had good luck with Goodyear's in Eastern Canadian winters. Hope this helps.
