Limp in mode has to deal with engine sensors and electrical power and grounds from the computer IF the basic engine is good such as compression, fuel pressure, charging system.

thats sounds like a possible boost control solenoid failure.when the boost solenoid fails it wont activate a warning light and because of the lack of boost the engine computer fail safe feature will put it in limp mode in order to keep the driver from harming the engine

Have a 2001 Magnum 318 V-8 W/Intermitted Popping/Missfiring With No Check-Engine Light ! Ignition-Wires,Spark-Plugs,Rotor-Distributor-Cap,Coil+TPS All New ,Still Act's-Up As Mentioned Above!!


I would be checking the firing order of the HT leads as you may have crossed leads which will cause the problems.. Ensure that the HT leads do not touch each other as that will cause miss fires as the current jumps across the leads and fires the wrong plug. There are spacer clamps available to keep the wires apart. The problem is most evident on el cheapo plug leads as there is less insulating properties as to the dearer ones.

Xr6 going into limp home mode when car is turned


theres a solenoid that selects gears it can trick the gearbox into limp mode, id have that checked before spending big money i spent 6000 on a new gearbox (not standard price i had a heavily modified gearbox) because the standard gearbox did the same turns out it was an $80 solenoid, i found out after forking out the money. any ford dealer should be able to plug it in and run diagnostic checks for you

Transmission keeps going into safe mode


When last was the oil changed ? Check if the oil is red ... if brown or black your oil is burnt and requires changing as soon as possible. Just don't go to Jiffy Lube.

Firing order for a 1996 EF ford falcon


EF & EL are 1,5,3,6,2,4
EF has a coil pack under the inlet manifold the EL has a distributor
EF uses a waste spark system so 2 plugs are fired at the same time eg 1 & 6 - 2 & 5 - 3 & 4
