The car still runs great, has no diagnostic codes but get 20% less fuel economy due to the intake manifold runner flaps being open all the time.

So I found a 36,000 mile 2015 Focus SE on Copart for $5153 and bought it. Will try to drive it back to Kenosha, Wisconsin from Detroit, Michigan on Monday. The plan is to sell my 2010 Focus SEL for $1,000 after we see if the Copart one is at all reliable.

Thanks for all who helped work through my IMRC issues especially Marde and Paul.

Crap. That is a sad ending to your IMRC problem.

Makes me mad that Ford failed during your car service, for PCM PATS key programming. I would guess that the Ford technician (Service Dept) failed you, and the used PCM was OK. I guess we will never know the truth.

I hope your next post or next thread is one about good news. Wishing you good luck, and better luck, with the 2015 Focus.

Always check your fluid levels, -then check your car.
