Could be a misfire, maybe trans, or something related to the throttle? Any lights lit up on the dash?


Check engine lite flashes and then stops


My old mountaineer did that and it had a TPS code so replaced the TPS and problem went away. So swing a parts store and get the codes pulled, write them down and then repost them back here and see where that take us
