I'm curious if you're familiar with this problem and what the likely outcome may be. I have a 2006 Ford Freestyle with 80,000 miles and the CVT transmission. I could drive around town for months and never have a problem, however when I'm on the highway after 60-90 minutes, all the idiot lights come on and the car behaves like it's in neutral. At this point, I rev the gas and the engine doesn't respond (I've since learned that the pedal doesn't actually operate the throttle, but a switch to signal the engine to increase RPMs). I then pull over & shut the car off. After a few minutes, I'll restart the car and it will be fine for a while, but once it happens, it will continue to happen, often with greater frequency. I'm way upside down on this car, since the last mini-van (a mercury villager) died before it was paid off, so I really don't want to trade it in. However I'm not big on coming up with $4,000 for a new transmission either. A local tranny guy suggested checking for codes and hoping for a 'speed sensor' problem. He also told me that the CVT is not very serviceable and can only be replaced. Help!
