I called another dealer that I'm familiar with in Southern CA. they told me the need to get a transmission specialist sit has to do with clutch issue in the transmission. So, guess I will see what they say...When the car didn't spaz out on me I did get avg in town 34 miles to gal. and once in awhile I got 38 to 42 on freeway. Thanks for the info and will see what happens..I'm just scared to drive it now.
Our Ford Customer Service rep can give you hand if your dealer is not taking the problem seriously. It seems like they are trying to do the right thing. Some of these cars have problems with internal bearings and the clutches. You did the right thing by waiting until the car would act that way predictably. The techs have to be able to recreate the problem in order to diagnose it.
Be eclectic.
