    It does start and the engine is a 4.0L. 1993 Ranger 4x4. I also had a fuel pressure regulator problem that filled the cylinders with fuel and the upper intake. I can go to the local Ford Service Dept. and get a copy of the flow chart. I just thought there may be a chart avaliable on line.

    Most service departments will make you a copy of the particular section if you know what to ask for. I am a retired ASE Master Technician And i worked for GM for about 20 years. I used to help the local independent guys whenever they needed service manuels and advice. I have not worked on many fords and i thought this would be a good place to find some info.

SOURCE: 2001 Chevy S-10 fuel pump circut

no that is not true. i have a sonoma and when i changed the fuel pump it was on its own circuit. the only special thing about the fuel pump is that it is a one piece assembly with the fuel level sending unit. so if you have to replace the sending unit you have to buy a whole new pump.

SOURCE: starter motor went out on

  • Code 542 indicates one of the following conditions:

Engine Starts:

· Fuel Pump secondary circuit shorted to power

· Fuel pump relay contacts always closed

· Open in fuel pump monitor (FPM) circuit between ECU and connection to POWER TO PUMP circuit

· Heated Exhaust Gas Oxygen (HEGO) sensor shorted to power

· faulty ECU

Engine Does Not Start:

· Open inertia switch or inertia switch circuit

· Open in or between ECU and fuel pump (This includes open in fuel pump brushes/windings)

· faulty ground connection at fuel pump

The easiest way to check this circuit is to go to the fuel pump relay. If the relay clicks when the key is turned to the "RUN" position, then the inertia switch circuit is ok.

The Pink/Black wire starts from the fuel pump relay and goes two directions. One side goes back to the fuel pump. The other side is the fuel pump monitor circuit and goes to pin #8 at the ECU. This wire should only be hot for a second or two when the ignition is turned to the RUN position.

The fuel pump relay receives power on the Black/yellow wire. It comes from a fusible link at the power distribution center. This wire should be hot at all times.

If all the above is working as designed, them you probably have a bad fuel pump.

Throdlebody and gas peddle out of sink won,t go faster than 30


If you would like help we would need the DTC - diagnostic trouble code .Is their a Reduced Engine Power Mode message showing on the instrument cluster ?
Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the PCM detects a problem with the throttle actuator control (TAC) system the PCM enters one of the following Reduced Engine Power Modes:
• Acceleration Limiting--The control module will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited Throttle Mode--The control module will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however the maximum throttle opening is limited.
• Throttle Default Mode--The control module will turn off the throttle actuator.
• Forced Idle Mode--The control module will perform the following actions:
- Limit engine speed to idle by positioning throttle position, or by controlling fuel and spark if throttle is turned off.
- Ignore accelerator pedal input.
• Engine Shutdown Mode--The control module will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.
IF you do not know this your best bet would be to take to a qualified repair shop .
DTC P0506
DTC P0507
The throttle actuator control (TAC) motor is controlled by the powertrain control module (PCM). The DC motor located in the throttle body drives the throttle plate. In order to decrease idle speed, the PCM commands the throttle closed reducing air flow into the engine and the idle speed decreases. In order to increase idle speed, the PCM commands the throttle plate open allowing more air to pass the throttle plate. If the actual idle RPM does not match the desired idle RPM within a calibrated time, this DTC sets.

I have a 2001 Chevy S10 4 cylinder 2.2L Flex Fuel. I am getting readout from most all Auto Parts stores that my codes are directing me to a sensor problem. These most recent codes were C0268, C0223,...


Now what is my problem? We are not magican , an we do not have magical fix's . Testing is the way to a fix . Each DTC - diagnostic trouble code has a diagnostic flow chart or what to test . Buick Electrical Part 3 Automotive Computer Operation 1990

An the auto parts stores just want to sell you a part , just because the code has a sensor name does not mean the part is bad , all sensors have two or three wire's , all coming from the PCM/ECM - engine computer . The electrical circuit could have a open , short to ground , a short to B+ power . The PCM could have a problem . Never change parts without testing . An if that's all you can do , then you need to take it to a qualified repair shop .

DTC P0705
Transmission Range (TR) Switch Circuit

The transmission range (TR) switch is part of the park/neutral position and back-up lamp switch assembly and is externally mounted on the transmission manual shaft. The TR switch is a multi-signal switch. The PCM supplies ignition voltage to the TR switch on four signal circuits (A, B, C, and P). Each gear selector lever position grounds one or more of the switch circuits. In order to determine the gear range selected by the driver, the PCM compares the voltage combinations on the signal circuits to a look up table stored in the PCM memory. PCM detects the selected gear range by the state change of the switch input. Refer to Transmission Range Switch Logic table.
Switch input to the PCM is represented on the scan tool as HI and LOW. HI indicates an ignition voltage signal. LOW indicates a zero voltage signal. The four parameters represent transmission range switch signal A, B, C and Parity.
When the PCM detects an invalid TR switch signal combination, then DTC P0705 sets. DTC P0705 is a type C DTC.

From reading your post an my years of experince your best bet would be to take to a qualified repair shop . You do not have the knowlede or tool's to fix these problems .

Install a Scan Tool .
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Select TR Sw. on the Scan Tool .
With the Scan Tool , observe the TR Sw. display while selecting each transmission range: P, R, N, D3, D2 and D1.
Does each selected transmission range match the Scan Tool TR Sw. display?

Two choice dudes code there...

DTC P0441 - Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Control System Incorrect Purge Flow
EVAP emission canister purge is contolled by a valve which allows engine vacuum to pull stored fuel vapors from fuel tank into the engine to be burned, rather than be vented to atmosphere. A vacuum switch is used to detect when flow exists. If the PCM commands purge and sees that the switch is closed (indicating no detected purge flow) P0441 is set.
With a P0441 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
  • Common Chrysler fix - Replace Leak Detection Pump / LDP
  • Repair damaged EVAP lines or canister
  • Repair open or short in voltage feed circuit to Purge Solenoid
  • Repair open in PCM purge command circuit
  • Replace purge Solenoid
  • Replace vacuum switch
  • Repair restriction in Evap line or canister or soleniod
  • Repair resistance in purge connector
  • Replace PCM


DTC P1441 - Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Flow During Non-Purge.
M
ost generally caused by a purge valve stuck open. the only way to diag for sure is with a gm tech 2 scan tool and a smoke machine. but if dont mind spending a few bucks as a good quess. Replace the purge valve.


Hope this helps.

How do I fix code P1237 on ford taurus sel


P1237 - Fuel Pump Secondary Circuit Malfunction

Electronic Returnless Fuel Systems (ERFS) utilize a Fuel Pump Driver Module (FPDM) to control fuel pressure. The PCM uses a Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor (FRP) for feedback. The PCM outputs a duty cycle to the FPDM to maintain the desired fuel rail pressure. During normal operation, the PCM will output a FP duty cycle from 5% to 51%. The FPDM will run the fuel pump at twice this duty cycle, e.g. if the PCM outputs a 42% duty cycle, the FPDM will run the fuel pump at 84%. If the PCM outputs a 75% duty cycle, the FPDM will turn off the fuel pump.

If the FPDM does not out any diagnostic signal, (0 or 100% duty cycle), the PCM sets a P1233 DTC. This DTC is set if the FPDM loses power. This can also occur if the Inertia Fuel Switch is tripped.

If the FPDM outputs a 25% duty cycle, it means that the fuel pump control duty cycle is out of range. This may occurs if the FPDM does not receive a valid control duty cycle signal from the PCM. The FPDM will default to 100% duty cycle on the fuel pump control output. The PCM sets a P1235 DTC.

If the FPDM outputs a 75% duty cycle, it means that the FPDM has detected an open or short on the fuel pump control circuit. The PCM sets a P1237 DTC.

Replaced fuel pump in 1998 for ranger


Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0232 indicates that the powertrain control module (PCM) detected the FPM circuit voltage was high when the fuel pump was commanded off. The FPM circuit is wired to a pull-up voltage inside the PCM. The FPM circuit will go high if, with the key on and the fuel pump commanded off, the FPM/FP PWR circuit loses its path to ground through the fuel pump. The FPM circuit will also be high if the FPM/FP PWR circuit is shorted to power.
Possible causes:
No Start:
Inertia fuel shutoff (IFS) switch not reset or electrically open.
Open circuit between the fuel pump and FPM circuit connection to the FP PWR circuit.
Poor fuel pump ground.
Fuel pump electrically open.
Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0102 indicates the MAF sensor signal went below 0.39 volt (refer to Voltage to Mass Air Flow Conversion Table at beginning of this Pinpoint Test) sometime during normal engine operation (Continuous) or during Key On Engine Running (KOER) Self-Test.
Did you have the MAF unplugged?
