Testimonial: "Sorry. It is a 2005 Ford Freestar. My husband just found that one of the sensor wires,by the transmission that was replaced 6 months ago and Torche converter a month ago, has a wire that came disconnected. Can't think it happened when they changed them,lol, but he is replacing it now and hopefully it will fix the AC, fans and temp gauge. "
Need the make, model and year.

Based on what the tech manuals say I would change the DPFE sensor for the EGR Valve, careful not to tear the special silicone rubber hoses that go to it from the exhaust, as a Ford dealer tech I saw these codes allot, and the DPFE sensor was almost always the issue or the hoses going to it.

Sounds like the Vehicle is POSESTED LoL ,
I would Hardwire a Key on wire around the origanal wires. Fuel Pump IS NOT going to set a Trouble Code at all ever, as it is an electrical component like headlights, as for the missfiring & guage reading above full I see nothing in commen with the 2 as long as the Supply and return hoses are
not swaped witch they cant be because it wouldnt run (thinking on keyboard) LoL-- Also check Fuel presure regulator. Hope this Helps you.

Hey I had my rotor and all that stuff replaced on my 2000 astro van, Intermittently it would not run, The problem was I hit a puddle one day and water flew up on top of the roter like 3 drops, it created a trace( it was arching) Thats why it was intermittent.Take a look at the cap look for like a discoloration on it clean it and put it back on.Sounds too easy but remember I had all new parts too.

SOURCE: Engine error code P03000
P0300 is a general code for "multiple engine missfires". This can be caused by several things. Since it is stalling and "dieseling" (noisy engine) after you come to a stop it sounds like the ignition system is shutting down for some reason. (dieseling requires fuel but not spark) Have shop check for cam and crank sensers, coil pack, and PCM. If he gets a P0000 code ever it will need a PCM and reprogram. It can be a bunchof other items as well but this is the most likely path I would take.

2 simple causes for your symptoms would be water in the fuel tank (pour drygas into the tank to alleviate this problem) or a leak in the exhaust system. If both items don't apply, check for any vacuum leaks under the hood. You've isolated the problem to either vacuum leaks or a fuel problem. Hopefully, this will give you a general area to look and solve your problem. Best of luck.
