Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
Means that the motor is having to add more fuel because there is a vacuum leak, or clogged fuel filter, or bad maf sensor.If this motor has a 3.8 v6 it needs the upper intake manifold seals replaced, along with new isolator bolts (they have rubber seals on em). Then when all done have the ecm reflashed with latest flash. I have done lots of them they are not that hard a mechanic should be able to handle it in about 2 or 3 hours. Including flashing the pcm.

The code P0170 means that the air-fuel mixture coming in to the engine is too lean, or too rich. Usually it's the lean condition that causes this code. The code P0173 means the same, only for the Bank 2. Some car manufacturers list the description for the code P0170 as self adaptation out of limits.
The code P0170 could be caused by a number of reasons, such as vacuum leaks, bad PCV valve, or other parts of crankcase ventilation system, low fuel pressure, bad oxygen sensor, bad MAF sensor or even a bad EGR vlave.
