Glad you got it going again! You should be good to go for some time now...
I certainly hope so. Just wonder what made the computer fail and how many other people have suffered the same issue? But like you said...the FS is doing fine now and good to go. All new fluids and filters and a new computer. Drives like a dream. Only down 3 weeks but I missed it and I'm sure my wife did.

One other thing I will mention is gas mileage. Before the PCM change we could fill up and the distance to empty would show 328...or 340. When we first got the car back in April it was in the 400-420 range after a fill up. I filled up shortly after picking the car up from the mechanic and the D to E was showing 422 miles. SO maybe the computer was already acting up. All that said, highway driving we get about 430-450 miles to a tank...depending on speed.

Sorry it took so long. The PCM is under the windshield cowl. But I didn't do that. The mechanic did that part and reprogrammed.

Had the throttle body go out about 2 months that ago so that may still be your issue. I still believe it may have been my issue all along and the mechanic was right with his original diagnosis.

We sold the Freestyle about a month ago and bought a Flex.
