The check engine light came on. I took the car in for service. I was told that the throttle body needed to be replaced. That cost me $736.83. This was done on 10/06/2010. Now again the check engine light has come on so I took the vehicle in for service. I am now told that the throttle body has gone bad. This time the estimate is $950. My mileage is 90,361. Now a little more that a year after the first repair I need to perform this repair again. I believe a recall needs to be forced on the Ford Motor Company for defective parts that are being installed on their vehicles.

2005 Mercury Montego lunges forward and when in reverse also it stalls and shuts off repeatedly and have problems accelerating at times. I took it to my mechanic and got the throttle body cleaned but the problem returned after a week.
