    05 Mountaineer high fuel consumption...suggestions?

    so the codes are C1155 and C1155-E0 left font wheel speed sensor. i read there are some TSB out for water enering the harness connection...i think it might be my case because when it rains or is cold, i have the error more often than when it is above 40F

    thanks, too bad you are far away. When i asked who was doing it for free, i was referring to some big chain store like autozone or similar. I will take it to a mechanic and see what they say :) thanks C.

    i do not hear any noise from the bearing, could be a bad sensor on one of the wheel? Also, i don't know if it can help troubleshooting, but the ABS-Check AVTRACK alarm seems more frequent when is cold (less than 40 degrees) or when it rains
