Funny....thats a safety feature ford now uses. Keeps you from blowing the engine and no you cant by pass it. So yes its natural. But nice to know that someone still trys to feed some speed.....

Personal experience says you have a wiring harness that is grounding out and causing the codes...This is especially true if you have had the typical motor mount issues that are common on the Pacifica...Check the wiring harness behind the drivers side wheel...


Remove the front left wheel (drivers side)
-Remove the wheel well shield (just the front is all that is necessary...fold it back)


-Verify the vehicle ground is still intact (when the motor mount gives there is not enough slack in the ground wire and the wire will pull out of the grounding lug)


-Inspect the wiring harness that is around the transmission that goes to the PCM (when the motor mounts give they can crush and then rest on the harness and wear through the casing and then affect the individual wires...throwing codes...)

Loud rattle noise under truck between 2,000 and 3,000 rpms. this happens through all gears and when out of gear.


if you have a protection pan on the bottom of the vehicle, check that to be sure its tight, if you have rear wheel drive, make sure the drive shaft and u joints are ok,, if all those check out to be fine, check your motor mounts. under carriage rattles can be a real pain to locate,
