    I just bought a 2005 Eddie Bauer and the accelortor is very touch. If I dont fix it or pay my mechanica to fix it I am told that I am going burn something out.

    my currently solution to the problem is to shift from 1 into drive once I get moving.

    Is this a common problem or the way that this version was designed?

    If I recall its drive by wire. If your having to shift into 1 then into drive to get moving then its probably more transmission related, either electronic issues or hard parts related

    Sounds like you have the 4.6l V8?

    If so, this is a common issue. You have a few options. Option one, find a new mechanic, no offense.
    Option 2, remove and clean the throttle body. Use throttle body cleaner and do remove it first.
    Option 3, get the PCM updated by Ford.
