I keep getting the code PO174 for My'99 f150 , 4.2 v6 motor.

(1999 Ford F-150)
in Henderson, NV on December 04, 2012
I changed all O2 sensors, cleaned the MAF sensor and checked for vacuum leaks.Is there a test to check the MAF sensor?
The truck still runs rough at idle and pings every now and then.
Please help.

Agree with 1 the pcv hose on rear of intake i bet is the trouble. Hard to even see, just fixed one
I pulled the intake to do the work but there was other repairs i needed to do.
It may be accessable otherwise! Intake leaks are common too. Same code in this one and this fixed that also, the hose turns into mush
and then leaks vacuum.
