Complaint / review text:
Lost power, car "trembling" while on freeway, in dangerous situation with cars flying by at high rate of speed. Ford told me it was valve problems and would cost me up to $5K for repairs, and that I should consider trading it in instead. Car has over 100K highway miles. Sent to brother-in-law's mechanic (Ford Specialist) who said also valve problem and replaced valve for $1,600. Then received letter about throttle body noting similar symptoms.
Called Ford who said it was not related and they had no appts for the throttle body work right now, call next wk. Next wk and one month after repair, same problem started on freeway doing 70 mph - thought it was going to die right there due to sudden loss of power. Took back to Ford Specialist mechanic who did previous work and he said another valve broke. He said it IS related. He told my brother-in-law valves don't just break. He is taking to another Ford dealer for review.in the meantime, I am spending $200/wk on rental car.
