Had check engine light on code p171 and replaced all filters sensors did smoke test for leaks and leak test, egr etc. nothing seems to keep it off it keeps coming back it will stay on and it will go off by itself sometimes I don't know what else to try
Yes I just had it hooked up to see why my engine light came on and it was the ETR, I am beginning to believe the car is like my old FORD FIX ON ROAD DAILY>
