Q: I took my car to a Ford service to check why it's loosing power

asked by on

I have been having problems with my Milan 2006 it will lose power after stopping at red lights or stop signs and shift hard or not at all at times. I looked up online an many people had had the same issues they replaced the throttle body and claim it ran good again. I took my car to a Ford dealer the body shop claims I need a new transmission and they said it would cost about 4600. They didn't even try to replace the throttle body they said something is bad in the transmission and they can't fix it Internally it would need to be replaced.

My car has 105000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A: If I were you, I would take the vehicle to ...

If I were you, I would take the vehicle to a second dealer without saying a word about visiting the previous one. You'll be able to get a fresh second opinion on the matter. See if they come up with the same diagnosis. If they do, you can decide to have it done there or at an independent shop.

Feel free to contact a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, if you don't want to go back to a dealer. We can properly diagnose your loss of power and make the necessary repairs to your car.
