Cars in the shop again

I just took my car into the shop for the same thing again, in fact this is the 6th time it's been in for the same problem. The problem was the one where it stalls out when I am coming up on stop signs and redlights. I also have the problem with the clicking behind the dashboard. So let's hope they fix the stalling or I think i'm going to lemon law it.

Didn't I hear that was a tune problem? I'm sure somebody will chime in, its a common SVT problem, but one my 04 didnt suffer.

Cant file lemon law bud. You should research that law first. Its VERY hard to do. You car is too old now if im not mistaken. Thats a tune problem like he said though. You dealer should run it for TSB's first. Ask them if they have and suprise them with that bit of info, lol

my stock ZED0 doesnt have this problem to that extent, tho it has stumbled sometimes coming to a stop, to the point where I'll jab the gas cause it feel like its about to stall. RLA6 (thats stock 02-03 right?) < YFR0 < ZED0 < any custom Tune. So, get those bums to a least load the TSB app to your ECU, and when thats better but not good enough, order up a custom from one of our fine tuners

I already had the PCM reflashed to YRF0 and it helped out but not in this case. I called SVT headquarters today and they said that I needed a new PCM as well. SO let's just hope that Ford finally gets the nerve and does it. I jsut hope that they can figure out what that ticking behind the dashboard is. I think it's those oil gauges but we'll see.
