first check drive axels , since you replaced front springs on struts i assume. it is possible that one of the axels popped out. next if thats ok check fluid level in trans with eng OFF should show over full make a srcribe mark on the stick. then START the eng it should go down to full or just below depends if trans is full or a little low . if level does not drop approx.1/2 in or so then have a transmission shop check for bad splines in torque convertor, that is a comon problem in that car, year and milage do not play a roll a large roll in parts failure in trans any more. not like it use-to.

SCAN YOUR CAR. HERE IS WHAT YOU DO. WITHOUT STARTING THE CAR, TURN THE KEY ON,OFF,ON,OFF,ON. WAIT SEVERAL SECONDS AND COUNT HOW MANY TIMES THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT FLASHES.IT WILL GIVE YOU A 2 DIGIT CODE, AND IT WILL NEVER BE MORE THAN 7 FLASHES IN A ROW. RE. IF YHE LIGHT FLASHES ONCE PAUSE THEN TWICE THAT CODE IS 12. A CODE OF 5 5 MEANS THE SYSTEM IS FINISHED DIAGNOSING. PLEASE GET BACK TO ME WITH YOUR CODES. GOOD LUCK.

hi, this code refers to an engine fuel mapping strategy designed to monitor air flow going into the engine and exhaust flow out of the engine to prevent any vacuum leaks, rich fuel conditions, or clogged/open air induction systems that will cause failure of emissions control or catalyst failure. the pcm monitors long term and short term fuel trim to compensate for rich or lean combustion. if the long term fuel trim reaches limits of 15 percent adaptation either positive or negative, the codes p0171, p0172,p0173, p0174 and p0175 will be set depending on which condition is happening. generally, p0171 tells of extra lean combustion occuring on bank one(on your vehicle, it will be the half of the engine that is furthest towards the front of the engine block, where cylinder one is located, i think the rear bank of your engine) okay, look for air tube cracks and leaks btween the mass air flow sensor and the throttle body, look for spongy vacuum hoses that close under vacuum, look for obvious vacuum leaks, check the evap purge control solenoid hose, commonly leaking here, also check pcv valves to make sure they are not blow out. if all tests okay, next step is to check the intake manifold for vacuum leaks, cracks in the gasket, etc. if okay here, check fuel pressure, maybe clogged fuel filter causing low flow, clogged fuel injectors, and bad fuel pressure regulators can occur. if all checks out okay, check the mass air flow sensor by removing from housing and physically looking at the intake air side(the side that recieves air from the filter) for dirt and contaminates. you can check this first if you like, also common problem. ford does not recommend to clean this sensor, only replace if contaminated. but you can try to clean with brake clean just as a test to see if it helps, just don't overdue the amount of cleaner, little goes a long way. if all this tests and looks good, go see a ford dealer! the last step of the diagnostic strategy is the test pcm(engine computer), don't do it yourself, take it the dealer. good luck!

If you have the fuel injected 460 with tfi module on the distributor have it replaced[ I did after replacing all my fuel pumps,plugs and wires].All you need to do is have it replaced $50 part half hour labor
