My Escape is sputtering / losing power.
I have a 2009 Ford Escape V6. Last week, it lost power and started to sputter. The wrench light came on. I was low on gas so I thought this was the problem. After I filled it, it repeated this one more time and then it did not happen again. A friend tried to pull the codes but he said there was NO codes.
I did clean the throttle body that day, it was grimey so I thought it may be stuck.
One more - the idle gets a little weird every now and then since this has happened. Revs up and then down.
Come to today, I was driving to the store and it did the exact same thing as above but not only did the wrench light come on but the service engine light. I turn the car off and it runs fine for a block and then the above repeats itself.
I was going to order a throttle body but I was hoping there may be more suggestions. Thanks so much.
Thank you in advance,
