I have a 2004 Ford f150 5.4 and I am getting a P0171 code by itself on and off. Whenever check engine light comes on the truck doesn't accelerate steadily but once the light goes off its fine. What co


Code 171 means the O2 sensor is telling the computer the fuel mixture for bank one is too lean. Bank one is the side with cylinder number one. The problem could be the sensor, or something else like an injector that is actually causing the fuel mixture to be lean. The sensor would need to be checked.

1990 f150 302 v8 5.0 sputtered and died and now wont start. What could be the problem?


Turn the ignition switch to run, without starting it. You should hear the electric fuel pump, in the gas tank, run for about 3 to 4 seconds, until it builds to proper pressure. If it is not humming along it needs replaced.

I have a 89 ford f150. put the key in, turn the key,, dash lights come on, but it will not turn over and start. I replaced the ignition switch but that wasnt it. any suggestions


Your battery may have a dead cell. It will still have 12+ volts and will run your dash lights and buzzer, but when a real load is requested, it doesn't have it to offer. The problem is quite common. The only way to know is to use a battery tester.

1996 ford f150 5.0 Runs fine then dies when radio is on


i think a trip to the local ford dealer is in order here, you won't get theis solved on the free forum, have been a Ford dealer tech for 25 years and have never heard of such a thing. all the lights u mention they come on because the engine has stalled, this goes for the loss of power steering as well..

I have the check engine light on 2day and show is the code p1709 pnp sw out of range how do i fix this ford f150 v6 1999 thanks


To Adjust Sensor:

  1. turn ignition switch to On, put shift lever in reverse and verify that the back up lights come on.
  2. If they do, but the engine can’t be started in Park or Neutral, or it can be started in any other gear besides Park or Neutral, the sensor is probably defective.
  3. If the lights do not come on, disconnect the shift cable from the manual lever, loosen the bolts on the sensor and move sensor slightly until the back-up lights come on, tighten bolts 62-89 in lbs for the 4R70W, 71-88 in lbs for the E4OD and 4R100.
  4. If you can’t get the back up lights to come on by moving the sensor, and the lights are good then the sensor is probably bad
If the sensor is bad replace and reset check engine light. Hope this helps, let me know

Spray starting fluid near the carburator if equipped. It may be a leaking main gasket under the carb.If you spray and the engine turns off. It is a vacuum leak. meaning the main gasket under the carburator .
