    Which codes did it show? Which areas caused the engine to rev when you sprayed them? Which gaskets do you want to replace?

  • Dean Noel Oct 25, 2012

    The codes are P0771, P0128, P0171, P2195, and I sprayed in the front of the engine near the fan

  • Dean Noel Oct 25, 2012

    I also cleaned the mass air flow sensor that is in with the air filter and that did nothing

  • Dean Noel Oct 25, 2012

    ok Thanks, now for next dumb question is where do I get that manual

  • sgfd Oct 25, 2012

    Well, you can buy them directly from Haynes: or you can buy them at Amazon for cheaper: or you can simply go down to a Pep Boys, Auto Zone, etc and ask for a Haynes manual for your car or give them the part number: 36045

    Great! Thanks i will get that first and then ask you more questions later

Well, let's review the codes:

P0771 is a transmission solenoid. I would start by ensuring that your transmission fluids are at an appropriate level. If that is correct and it is on, I would take it to a transmission shop.

P0128 is a thermostat check code. Ensure that your coolant levels are correct and that there is no discoloration or strange texture/objects in the fluid. This code can also indicate problems with several sensors such as the cooling fan switch. Observe your car while running and see if the cooling fans turn on and off at times and do not stay on constantly. Changing a thermostat is relatively straightforward but time consuming, perhaps upwards of 2 hours for someone doing it the first time. You should replace the hoses while you are doing the job and flush the radiator, adding new coolant.

P2195 is an oxygen sensor check code. If it is on, it indicates an oxygen sensor bank 1, sensor 1, is reading lean. This can be caused by a faulty sensor, but it can also be caused by a vacuum leak in the gaskets. The purpose of spraying around the gaskets was to see if the brake fluid would get sucked into the engine through a hole in a gasket. Because the brake fluid is very combustible, it would cause your engine to rev. You need to repeat the test by spraying specifically on individual gaskets in individual places on those gaskets to determine conclusively that there is a vacuum leak. Once you determine which gasket it is, I can answer how long it will take to change it.

I would suggest picking up a Haynes manual for your car, which essentially shows the car as it is disassembled so you can understand where things are and how to change them.

It could be either. If the leak is roughly under the firewall on the driver's side then it's likely to be the master cylinder. If it's the master cylinder, it will probably cost you $75-80 for a replacement.

Where is the MAF on a 2002 Ford Fusion 2?

The MAF sensor by its nature must be between the air cleaner and the throttle body. Look along the snorkel tube for a pigtail from the wire harness. That should be the Mass Air Flow sensor.
FYI: There is a special MAF cleaner spray available at NAPA and other retailers. USE IT. Good luck.

How to overide limp mode in 2006 ford fusion

put the key in the ignition, and turn it so the lights and everything come on, do not start the engine, then pump the brakes 3 times, turn it off, and then start the engine. This worked for my 2008 for fusion. (if the brakes don't work, try the gas 3 times make sure the engine is off and the car is in park)
Best of luck!

My truck dies when i go slow or brake

severe vacuum leak possibly or IAC isn't functioning. Try cleaning throttle body and IAC with carb cleaner and see if it helps. Always be very careful with carb cleaner, if you have any spark leaking around plug wires you will have a engine fire on your hands also if engine backfires same thing. always install air cleaner before trying to start engine after spraying a bunch of carb cleaner down the throttle body.

Low rpm on start up, check engine light came on.

If you dont have a code reader go to Autozone and have them read them for you. it sounds as if you may have a defective sensor. It may be a simple cheep solution to try to clean your mass air flow sensor. You Can do this by taking some brake parts spray cleaner to clean it up. the brake parts cleaner dosent leave any residue so it wont harm the sensor. If you dont know where the sensor is located it is usually located just after the air filter box.

You have a vaccuum leak somwhere, those are tough to find sometimes. An easy way is when you have the car running, spray some brake cleaner or carb/choke cleaner everywhere, the engine does like this stuff and should **** it up at the leak the engine will in turn change it's idle, that is the easiest way to find a vaccuum leak sometimes.
