Since having my cam position sensor replaced in 2006 I have been plagued with codes p0171 & p0174, have changed out both oxygen sensors, pcv and all vacuum lines and still had p0171 & p0174 persist. 6000 miles ago I changed out the spark plugs and wires, I have now have code p0303. I changed out the MAF and reset codes now only have p0303 which came on immediately after I replaced the MAF, I am going to check the plugs do you have any other suggestions recomendations. Prior to the cam position sensor code I never had any problems since the dealer replaced the cam position sensor I have had continious check engine light code p0171 & p0174.

every time I turn on my heat, it is making a clicking sound and only blowing out cold air.

when the explorer is running you can here a rattlin noise. with the motor off , you can stick your finger in the front of pulley, and fill something moving around. can this be repaired by replacing bolts.

The explorer will start and you can drive it, but then it will die. If you wait a few minutes it will start back up, but you have to wait if you try right after it dies it will not start. I replaced the fuel filter, and that did not fix the problem what should I check next.
