Engine Performance problem
2005 Ford Mustang V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual 18000 miles
My Mustang GT, 2005, has low mileage and was running on a two day trip just perfectly and giving me over 24 mpg, then I stopped at my destination.
The next time I started the car, about two hours later, I noticed the trip meter was reset to zero and then the message center displayed the "Failsafe Engine Mode" message and the car idled OK but wouldn't respond to the accelerator. The gauges read fine and no other message lights or warning lights came on. I limped it two miles to my destination. The next morning, it started and ran fine with no messages and no "Failsafe Engine Mode" warning. I drove it about 15 miles and all seems to be fine. What do I do next? Will it hurt to drive the car? In five days I need to drive it 1200 miles to my home and work location and I am not trusting it. What if it does this at 70 mph in the middle of nowhere in Alabama? Thanks.
