yes, there is a code reader but it is a scan tool that most shops have. it is not a free service.

how did you check the sensors?? it sounds like low fuel pressure but you need someone to put a pressure gauge on it to verify.

The system is old EEC-IV Ford processor strategy. There is a Ford specific diagnostic connector that plugs in under the hood. Indeed - how did you check the sensors?
