Rough idle, stalling, missing, gas smell. Have replaced almost everything (coil, wires, plugs, fuel filter, rotor, cap, distributor, MAP sensor, TP Sensor, Idle Air Control and still have problem.
Rough idle, stalling at let off on road and at idle. Excess gas consumption and several error codes set. Excess raw gas smell and high gas consumption. Checked gas pressure at injector rail and found it to be three times greater than specs. Changed gas bypass relay & this corrected all codes and drivability problems.
After years of flawless service, vehicle will spontaneously lose power, stumble, and quit on hot days. Hills or pulling a trailer are problems. Temp gauge is well within normal range. Plenty of battery power. Will resume running after it cools all the way down. It has a mind of its own, but like me, not a very functional one! Ideas?
VEHICLE LOSS POWER STEERING AND STALLED WHEN ON FREEWAY!
DRIVER COULD NOT BRAKE OR STEER EASILY. VEHICLE WAS COASTING DOWNHILL!
ALL OF A SUDDEN THE POWER CAME BACK AND DRIVER WAS ABLE TO COAST AND STEER TO SIDE OF ROAD. AFTER A SHORT REST DRIVER TRIED TO OPERATE VEHICLE AGAIN TO GET BACK TO SHOP.
SAME THING HAPPENED AGAIN.
DRIVER SLOWLY MADE IT TO SHOP.
WE TOOK TO FORD DEALERSHIP AND THEY COULD NOT SEE IT UNTIL THE NEXT WEEK BUT THEY DID
SOMETHING TO "ERASE" A SENSOR OF SOME SORT AND SAID THE VEHICLE WOULD OPERATE SAFELY UNTIL WE RETURNED IN 5 DAYS FOR REPAIR.
THE MECHANIC DETERMINED THAT CODE P0104 SAYS REPLACE MAF SENSOR AND THROTTLE BODY
$1264.00.
WE HAD IT DONE AND BEFORE WE GOT THE VEHICLE TO THE SHOP...STALLING AND "TOOL" LIGHT COMES ON AGAIN!
MISDIAGNOSIS? WE WILL SEE.
