    What do you mean by this exactly? Are you doing this in park or neutral?
    The gen II has electronic throttle control. There is no physical connection between the gas pedal and the throttle. The PCM takes the gas pedal position as an indication of how much power the driver wants. It then uses the throttle, the transmission gear, and other engine controls to accomplish what the driver wants. In park or neutral, the system goes into a diagnostic mode that gives very slow throttle response and limits engine RPM.

    I do this in park or neutral. I understand the limit on rpm but, I would expect the rpm to drop immediately or almost so. Now, when I do it, the rpm stays for a couple of seconds before it drops to idle.

    I figured as much. I wonder how much extra fuel is being burned because of that. In town driving kills mpg and I was trying to figure out some way to help that. I don't see any reason to burn fuel when its not required like when coasting. I guess I expected it to freewheel when off throttle.

    In gear, above a certain speed, when coasting no fuel at all is consumed. The PCM shuts all fuel injectors off and lets the momentum of the car turn the engine.

    Please note that the slow throttle response only happens in park or neutral!

    Once when I was younger and more foolish than I am these days, I got so (too) close to a speeding greyhound bus in the fast lane with my Camaro Z28 when suddenly I realized I didn't even have to have my foot on the accelerator pedal to maintain the high rate of speed we were traveling at.

    It was a 5 speed manual with the four bolt main, I recall popping it in neutral while performing this careless drifting technique.

    It was fun for a little while but I got of his tail when fear of either sudden death or reckless-driving/following-too-close tickets came to mind.

      If you must get service done at the dealer and they rotate your tires, for God's sake take your own torque wrench. Those gorillas insist on using impact wrenches and they will over torque your lug nuts. One of the reasons I don't go to the dealer anymore is because they torqued some of my nuts to almost 300 ft lbs and damaged some of the nuts on two wheels.

      Sticky Please!

      Hey everyone,

      I stumbled upon this (Ford of Europe) website: http://www.etis.ford.com/vehicleRegSelector.do while looking for information about key compatibility when I switched to keys with the remote built into the head a few months back, anyway I went back and started digging around on this website this evening and on a whim entered my VIN number for my 06 LS on the vehicle lookup page; low and behold it came back with the full build details (sans the actual build codes unfortunately) so I figure that it may also decode the VIN numbers of other US built Ford/Mercury/Lincoln vehicles, best of all there is no login, no money and no waiting.

      I have no idea how far back or how extensive this may be so perhaps everyone could spread this info far and wide and let's see how deep the rabbit hole goes...

      Remind your significant others to put premium only in the tank!

      Hello
      ! My name is Tim. My father has a 2001 LS with about 178000 miles on it and its the love of his life! I am a diesel mechanic and he has the timing chain noise so I was going to do the chains, guides, . . . . . for him. Have all the parts but the torque to yield cam sprocket and crank dampener bolts. Call the dealer and they are about $35 a piece and I am told I will have to order them from all over the us. Joined this forum hoping to get some advise and hopefully a source!! Any help would be great!!

      Time for a rabbit trail.....

      My mom was raised in Tacoma. I remember visiting my great-grand parents (first here from Norway on my mom's side) in the mid-60's. They were getting the secondary streets paved for the first time!! Believe it or not, I kind of miss the smell of the pulp mills!!

      What loud said......

            I'm not sure if this has been posted before.

            This is an old shade tree that has a really positive attitude on working on the LS.

              What harness is it? I'm planning a build really soon with a set of 10" subs, as well as a double din DVD Nav unit. Taking out the factory Alpine 6-disc changer. I have the subs in the rear deck alpine edition.

              1/8th inch NPT pipe nipples fit perfectly in the fill plug of the transmission.

              COSTCO 91 (the highest octane pump-gas available in The People's Republik). I'd go higher if I could. I always stick w/Top Tier...
