SOURCE: obd code p0304


P0304 is actually pointing to a misfire in cylinder 4, not a camshaft sensor problem.

There could well actually be two misfires rather than just one because Ford use a wasted spark ignition system wherein two cylinders are fired at once, one of them on its compression stroke and the other on its exhaust stroke, hence the wasted spark on the exhaust stroke.

You say it is "popping" which would lead me to believe that there is a spark issue rather than a fuel issue, because the popping sound would be the fuel igniting either in the exhaust or the intake rather than the cylinder, and this would be confirmed if you were to run the engine and then switch it off and pull the no.4 spark plug and it were to be covered in fuel.

If you were to find two plugs covered in fuel and the rest ok, then the coil pack feeding those two plugs would probably be the problem.

If only one plug were covered in fuel then either the plug or lead feeding that cylinder owuld probably be the issue.

If none of the plugs are covered in fuel, indicating a fuel problem, and you were to swap the no.4 injector with one of the other injectors, and then the fault code were to change to the cylinder into which you swapped the no.4 injector, then the injector would be the problem.

Very best regards

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Escape error code P0402

Ok here is the solution when I had the exact same problem with my 2001 Ford Escape:

Idler air control valve
EGR vaccum sylenoid
EGR valve

I did all of this work myself (and as a girl it was not hard at all), it cost me around $170.00 for all of the parts, had it done in less than 2 hrs., erased the codes and have not had a problem since then! I hope this helps you out, cuz it sure would have helped me out when I encountered the same problem.

SOURCE: Shut 05 Ford f350 diesel off wont start

dies the truck restart once it cools off? it is very common for th 6.0 to have high pressure oil issues on a hot soak. they will run till the cows come home but once shut off they can not build up enough pressure by cranking speed alone to start truck until it cools down and the seals become rigid enough to bridge the gaps they are sealing in the first please. if this is the case. it may be the STC fitting ojn the back of the high pressure oil pump (intake and turbos must be removed to check) or possibly the branch tube o rings have worn. the branch tubes are located under the valve covers and supply the fuel injectors the oil they need to perform their "power stroke"...

Wont shift from second code p0720

code po720 refers to output shaft sped (OSS) sensor---circuit malfunction ===causes wiring--OSS sensor ECM/TCM
the possible fixes here are the OSS and the TCM . It could be either or both so I would suggest a visit to an accredited auto transmission shop to test the units before spending money on a good unit.

Having replace both sensors means that you still not have fixed the fault. Check the wiring and connectors for moisture an damaged pins and the TCM plays a big part in your problem ( transmission control module)

Where is the location of a speed sensor on a 2003 Ford F250 superduty?

It should be sticking out of the top of the transmission at the rear of the unit. There are 2 sensors, 1 at front of unit (TSS) and one at the rear of the unit (OSS). The OSS is your speedometer related sensor.

2001 f350 7.3 overdrive light is flashing and speedodometer is jumping erratic

it indicates an insufficient output from the OSS sensor.The output shaft speed (OSS) sensor is a magnetic pickup that provides transmission output shaft rotation speed information to the powertrain control module (PCM).
I suspect RFI, affecting the OSS signal to the CPM. I will post the actual PCM rationality test, it will help you understand what the PCM looks for before setting the code.Possible sources of strong RFI are the alternator, Battery cables corroded, fuel pump faulty, and any other wire running next to the returning wiring harness, the return signal from the OSS signal is tied to your transmission solenoid, TSS, and a few other electrical systems, any of them will send an unwanted voltage that can interfere with the signal.

2002 f250 v10 engine quits after warm up at idle only

DTC = P0720
footnote b = MIL (malfunction indicator light) comes on after 2nd occurance
footnote c = tranny control indicator light (TCIL) flashes
circuit = OSS = output shaft speed sensor in the tranny (not the variable speed sensor (VSS) in the diff).
condition = OSS sensor circuit malfunction
probable causes = Short/open circuit, sensor, PCM

My guess? Replacing the OSS will take care of it. smile.gif I hope you don't have a faulty PCM. frown.gif
