You need to have the transmission serviced. The wrench indicates that the fluid in your transmission is out of spec or you have an out of spec pressure condition.

I work at a Ford dealer and we have seen very little trouble with this trans-axle. We replaced a mectronics unit in one and replaced one complete assembly, other then that we have had no trouble with them and personally would have no fear of buying one.

The high pressure filter and fluid are supposed to be changed at 60k intervals. Ford has a very specific oil for this transmission and the service fee will be $300 to $450 - mine was around $420.
No other car place will touch the CVS transmission in a Ford Freestyle and most Ford dealerships are clueless on thier maintenance and repairs. On most issues that crop up the first thing they want to do is swap it out - for $4000+.

If the check engine light stays on when your engine is running, your onboard computer has detected a fault in your emissions system. You need to have it hooked up to a code detector to find out what the problem is. If you are near an Autozone or Advance auto parts store they will usually do that for free. Here is where your search begins. Most of the time the code for "engine lean" will show up. That means you are getting too much air into the intake manifold. Excess air gets in through vacuum tube leaks, intake gasket leaks, faulty EGR, and PVC valves and sometimes valve stem seals, There are also a variety of other codes that may indicate faulty oxygen sensors, catalytic converter, fuel evaporative system. It is too expensive to just start changing parts and hoping you get it the first. It is important to get the codes that are stored in your onboard computer first.
