    I want to know where is located?

    I am stunned anyone doesn't love Point A Engineering! I first contacted them by telephone. After discussing ALL of what was wrong with my 2000 Ford Ranger, I ordered the part and it came in just TWO DAYS! I installed it and the light instantly went off. I registered it the next day. Now for the best part. One month later I had another unrelated problem and called them to get advice. I spoke to an auto engineer who helped me fix the truck even though it had nothing to do with the flex fuel sensor! I can't imagine anyone thinking this company was bad. They went above and beyond for me.

If your flex fuel sensor is bad there is a product on the market that is a much better alternative compared to purchasing a new sensor for over $600 or even a used one for typically around $300. The product is called a Flex Fuel Sensor Replicator made by T&S Electronics and can be purchased off their website www.tandselectronics.com. The cost of the Replicator is $150 and it is very simple to install. In fact, your old flex fuel sensor stays in place so you don't have to mess with your fuel line. The wiring from the original flex fuel sensor is hooked up to the Replicator which sends an electronic signal to your engine control unit that "replicates" the signal the ECU would get from the original FFS when you are burning standard unleaded gasoline containing up to 10% ethenol.

The only limitation present with the Replicator installed is that you can no longer burn E85 or other alternate fuels (no big deal for most people). And, as an advantage you should see a 1-2 mpg improvement with the Replicator installed.

I used Point A Engineering and couldn't believe how fast it dismissed the codes on my Chevy Tahoe! Point A Engineering is a legitimate corp, I checked them out with the State of Oregon and you can too. THIS IS A CORP. They are the largest flex fuel sensor replicator manufacturer in North America. Their product is US Patented. I think their goofy competition is posting lies here. Nobody can compare. Perhaps that's the trouble. Www.pointaengineering.com or call them and you will get an automotive engineer or ASE CERTIFIED MASTER TECH. This device is working in thousands of trucks after about a ten minute repair.

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY http://www.pointaengineering.com/main.sc Because they are a fraudulent company! The sensor they provide does absolutly nothing. I tried it and nothing changed in the way my vehicle ran.

Check compression in number three. You could have bought a bad engine. And yes. You need to change every sensor. If they don't match with the plugs. replace the engine. There is a reason for different engine codes. You should have stuck with them.

No spark or current from ignition coil


possibly the flex fuel sensor- its on the frame rail just behind the drivers door- check the conector and connections on the sensor itself.

  1. crankshaft position sensor could be at fault. CPS is responsible for spark timing and fuel pressure at the pressure regulator. A code should be stored on the vehicles PCM. The check engine light should be on. Codes must be read by a generic code reader.

Check and see if the EGR valve is leaking, to check this spray water on it at idle, if the water steams off the valve is leaking and is the source of your problem, also are you sure you hooked the new DPFE sensor up right? re-check it..

Ranger 2003 ranger 3.0 stalls when accelerating

Has a TPS been check don't just replace parts test then replace sure its slower but sure is less expensive and you learn something too.
If the engine light is on, get the code then contaact me and Ill tell you how to TROUBLESHOOT AND DIAGNOSE NOT JSUT CHANGE PARTS
