Can you rev the engine at the throttle body? Is the cable connected between the accellerator and the throttle body lever? Or, if thats ok, does it have a throttle position sensor code stored? You would need to read your codes at your OBD II connector using a reader from the parts store perhaps?

You can also google pinpont tests at the throttle position sensor, and use a DVOM. Inspect the connector and connector and sensor pins.

You have power loss and torque converter codes or trans code ? Google pinpoint tests. If you cannot get what it says, try also enginecodes.com for info. Call Ford, get advice after Oasis. be ready to supply VIN #
