I donít remember the actual code but I tried to get it to recreate the issue on my way home wich I can usually do by putting to the floor on a hill but I only got a little skip here and there and not the full lose of power and shutter. At this point I think Iím just going to take it in to my local dealer so they can hook it up to there computer.

If I wanted to be able to test this myself what kind of money is involved getting the proper diagnostic equipment?

Donít know. I bought the truck used at 76,000 Iím at 139,000 now. Iím assuming theyíve never been changed. I was going to tackle it my self but got scared with the hole snaping off in the head thing and just havenít spent the money to have the dealership do them when they said itís 360 plusís 200 per break. Iím 25 and just got married and donít have a lot of cash sitting around so Iíve been trying to save up to get it done and whatís about to do it withing the month and now the dang ac **** itís self.

2009 has the revised heads with conventional spark plugs. Easy to change, they won't break. Change them, use a little bit of dielectric grease in the coil boots, and this might possibly fix your A/C too.

Not in 2009. They revised the heads about halfway through the 2008 model year. I think you need to find a more competent dealership or independent shop.

They said at the dealership the pcm wasnít allowing the a/c clutch to engage.plus I need a new fan motor and a new resistor. Wich the resistor is only a week old and a motor craft part. Is there a way to test the resistor? It also seems odd to me that they would say the blower motor is bad when it comes on it just stays on high.

I'd go get another opinion. There has to be a reason why the PCM is not allowing the compressor to engage, and that reason is rarely the PCM itself.
