2006 Ford Freestyle Automatic 74575 miles
Freestyle surges when it gets hot.
Esp if sitting in traffic or idling. If foot is not firm on the brake it will jump ahead and sometimes the engine dies.
Once it does that the wrench lights up on the dash and then there is very limited power. Pressing the gas doesn't speed up the motor. It goes, just not fast.
Turn it off for 5 minutes and it starts up and runs fine (?) The check engine light came on last week for 2 days and I took it to Advance and they gave me these codes
2109 (limited forced power)
61B (torque converter control module)
Guy there said it was probably transmission and would have to be rebuilt. It has the CVT transmission but the gas milage has never been over 22 and usually is about 20. I read lots of folks get 26+
It shifts smoothly and I am driving it daily. Does it need transmission or it is hopefully something else.
