@ luvf150, what is the status regarding the cleaning of your TB etc.?

Six months ago I started losing control of the thottle/pedal input, as well as throwing a code. A complete cleaning of the system(s) cured things.
Ford wants rock star dollars for a replacment TB unit, and during the time that mine was an issue, I prepared to go to an HP aftermarket one for around the same money, if not less.

Press on regardless!

My first thought on this was if you can't find the throttle body don't attempt to clean it.

Maybe they forgot to shut the engine off and got sucked in?

Maybe there was a "laying hands" holy Christmas miracle, and it fixed itself ?

Sorry didn't realise abt account sign up in google. The throttle body wasn't that bad. Cleaned and it doesn't show appreciable difference in performance. Might be making some difference in Mpg's...thanks folks.
