Re: Possible CVT Issue P0961

Looks like this viewtopic.php?t=6015 is the route I'm taking. Hopefully the new DEM works out and fixes the issues. I'll post how it works out.

Possible CVT Issue P0961

My '06 FS had been running a little funny. It felt like a rear differential issue. Recently the check engine came on and I pulled a code P0961. From the forum it looks like this code usually comes with a handful of others. Pressure control solenoid A is what the designation seems to be. I'm wonderin...

Re: 2005 Freestyle Limited CVT slipping or engine problem

Maybe start by doing a throttle body cleaning and see if that helps. It's an easy cheap way to rule that out. Search the forum for symptoms of throttle body issues.

Re: Power Steering Whine

You can also use power steering fluid with conditioner which will seal up and leaks. I had the same issue with leaking fluid and that was the cheapest car fix I ever ran into

Re: Electrical Induced Check Transmission

Just a quick follow-up: I've continued to drive the vehicle as-is with no change in symptoms. My routine is to disconnect the battery overnight then reconnect the next morning, start up and drive away. As long as I don't shut off the engine the vehicle will perform perfectly all day. However, the i...

That's what I bought and used and everything has been golden ever since. I cleaned the TB with TB cleaning fluid a couple time but ultimately it needed to be replaced.

Re: I'm guessing this is pretty common...

Throttle body is a very easy and relatively affordable fix. I'd start with that.

Re: 2007 freestar running rough

I'd start by cleaning the throttle body to rule that out. It's easy to do and the cause of many idle problems.

Re: Towing a Pop-Up Camper and Bike Rack

I was recently looking into the exact same thing. After towing my pop I realized that it would have been really nice to be able to bring our 4 bikes as well. I haven't bought it yet but this is what I found online.

Re: Failsafe Engine Mode, Please help!!

I've noticed in my own TB that a lot of the buildup is in that butterfly valve. I make sure to clean that out really well before re-installing.

Re: High Gas Mileage (That's good, Right?)

I live in a pretty rural environment these days with a lot of 45-60 mph driving and very few lights and stop signs and I can't seem to get my average above 20 mpg per tank. That said when I was driving in Brooklyn, tons of stop and go, I was getting between 11-12 mpg.
