For those with the Helix/Vortex spacer thingy
Funny thing happened to me this afternoon, I was cruising along, almost at my destination and experienced a loss of power. Looked at the dash and a light was flashing or lit up which normally isn't. Not good I thought. Tried to make it to a nearby carpark but no good, had to wait for someone and I slowed right down and the beast died on me. In a REALLY bad and awkward position. On go the hazards, which I don't remember ever using before and I'm spewin' but then I remember cars these days and especially these are pretty digital. So I started it up and she was fine, as is the case with a lot of running problems. Phew, parked, did my stuff and got back to work.
I looked up the fault and it was the light for the throttle and it of course said to see your dealer asap. I happen to be going to the dealer on Monday so I rang my service guy when I got back to let him know to expect this issue.
Of course they know my car and straight away I'm reminded that "you've modified your throttle body" cause I have the Herrods Helix spacer. I'm hugely sure that the spacer has nothing to do with it and the problem may never even happen again but they mention the letter Ford sent out about modified cars recently, blah, blah, blah.
What kind of simple mod is the Helix spacer? It's a GOOD one, it's not like I stuffed a sock up there and now am having trouble. Anyway, I've had mine in since early Feb I think, for those that one one I'm just wondering if you've ever had that throttle light come up and how long you've had it. Hell, if you don't have one and the light has come up, that would be good to know.
