It sounds like it may have went into limp mode. Is the check engine light/wrench on?


Yes it is


Certain problems on ford will cause it to go into limp mode to keep from doing damage to the vehicle. See if you can limp it to advance or autozone and they will read the codes for free. Post the codes and we will try to help you fix it.
