Re: Has anyone used a OBDII scanner auto bleed air out of the ABS module?

Can you find a dirt/gravel road and do some hard stops to kick in ABS that way?

Re: 2005 Ford Freestyle limited slipping acceleration issue

The BlueDriver is the best IMHO, I have it and I’ve used a number of scan tools over the years, it’s the best I’ve used, especially for that price point! https://www.amazon.com/BlueDriver-Bluet ... B00652G4TS

Great! I encourage you to ask friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, the mailman etc. for recommendations to find a new mechanic who is highly rated... just in case.

Re: 2006 freestyle with 87000 miles, WONT START

It is strange that you have no fuel pressure yet are managing to flood the engine, that doesn’t totally make sense. I suspect the vehicle has had multiple issues and that’s par for the course on an oldish Ford. I’d say you either need to let the dealer replace the pump or get it to another shop for ...

Re: 2006 freestyle with 87000 miles, WONT START

Do you have any diagnostic codes? I have no idea what a dobbs is.

So did the throttle body actually fix the car's starting problems for a while? Did they actually diagnose the fuel pump as bad or are they guessing?

Re: 2006 freestyle with 87000 miles, WONT START

I would say you need to find a better mechanic, first off. Is this a Ford dealership that you've been taking the car to?

How are you flooding it? Are you touching the gas pedal while you try to start it? Don't touch the gas pedal, it's not necessary.

Good luck.

Re: 2006 freestyle with 87000 miles, WONT START

Why are you desperately asking for help on the Internet when you have a dealership mechanic that looked at it and suggested a fix? Did they actually diagnose the fuel pump as bad? We need more details. You need fuel, spark, and air for the vehicle to start. I'm guessing you don't have the skills to ...

Re: my 1st post, manual for FS?

Haynes/Chilton are garbage next to the factory service manuals. It depends on the model specifically (I can't speak to the Freestyle version specifically) but overall I avoid those manuals like the plague. I buy only OEM shop manuals from eBay. They are more money but worth it IMHO. Yes they are eas...

https://www.obd-codes.com/p0202 - check the wiring and connectors before condemning the injector itself.
