I was at the dealer for other work and was chatting with the mechanic about anything they see coming in on the 2013 Edge with 3.5L V6. He said that one thing they see a LOT of is dirty or failed Throttle Body. That they recommend having it cleaned every 15-20K miles. For $65 no less. So, I googled around for an hour or so and came up with NOTHING on this issue. Is this another "dealer service scam" or is this a REAL problem? He described it as causing the car to stall and, if bad enough, to not run at all. He also said that there was a "national shortage" of replacement throttle bodies due to the problem. You'd think that would show up somewhere if it were happening with such regularity. Anyone familiar with this issue or have this problem??

Hello, I'm the owner of a 2011 Ford Edge SEL with the 3.5L V6. Just had to replace the throttle body at 38,800 miles. The vehicle lost power, would not accelerate and the yellow wrench appeared on the instrument panel. Only way to correct problem was to restart engine. Anyone else have this issue. I'm disappointed with this type of failure at such low mileage (and of course after warranty expired) Cost was close to $600. Thank you.
