TPMS sensor stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System. Basically there is a pressure sensor in each wheel. It sends a signal to a computer and tells you if you have a low tire. This was probably not the dealerships fault as they usually check your tire pressure when they do a oil change. You should check your pressures and fill any tire that is low. They probably run at 32psi on your vehicle but you can check inside your drivers door on the sticker, that will tell you what they should be set to. If it is really low you might want to take it in and have it checked you may have picked up a nail or something along the way. Also that light will come on if a tire is too much over inflated. Good Luck

Ford Freestar Shut off problem

It is normal for the check engine light to come on anytime the engine stops running. If I were you and I took it to the shop I wouldn't say anything about what has been tried because it obviously isn't the problem. If you know someone that has a code reader or better yet someone that has an Autotap code reader have them check for error codes in the PCM.
If you have high millage on the van It could be a fuel problem such as a plugged fuel filter our even a fuel pump going bad. Can be checked with a pressure gauge hooked to the fuel rail.
On Freestars when the engine just dies they will set many different codes. Not all of them point to the problem, some of them set just because the engine died and was not turned off.

The engine seems to be making a sputtering noise

Amelia, we just bought one off a lease 5 weeks ago (purchased from a dealer). We are having the same symptoms, suddenly, as you describe.

Took it back to the dealership. After a bit of drama, they agreed to foot the repair bill ($1000). It was a broken distributer cap and wiring which should have been replaced before it was resold to us. What a pain.

How do you reset "change oil soon" light in a 2006 ford freestar?

Some cars require you to pump the gas pedal a couple of times (2-3) with the ignition switch on (don't start the vehicle). Then turn the ignition switch off then start the vehicle.
