Question about 2005 Ford F-150
Hey there, I was driving down the road when my engine failsafe mode light came on. I pulled over and shut the truck off, when the dealer told me aI could drive it into town I was only able to go 30 km/ph. The told me it was a throttle body sensor so they fixed it and charged me ^00 bucks, as I was driving home from the shop that day the exact same thing happened. Now they are telling me it is the throttle body itself, any ideas on what might be wrong. No warning numbers come up when they plug in their comp0uter
Most vehicles that are new have a fail safe. most of the time when this ingages it has to do with low fluid levels especially low coolant. no codes thrown on the computer presents a unusual problem because when the fail safe ingages it should auto matically throw a code. tell me when you first start it does it drive normal for a while?

Just because there is a code does not necessarily mean that part is bad, but an area to test to find the actual problem.
