Question about Ford Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

2003 ford explorer 4.0 L engine. All of a sudden wont stay running and sounds like it is running out of fuel. Has codes p1000,p0316,

Changed fuel filter, still sounds like it is staving for fuel and missing on all cylinders. Vacuum tested egr valve, fuel control switch.no codes that make me believe it is a vacuum leak. Could the fuel pump be going out? or is the 6 coil pack going bad?

2003 Ford Taurus with code P0316 only


Code 316 means the engine computer has detected a miss-fire on startup. You normally get a code for the cylinder causing the problem.
If the spark plugs are original, I would start with checking them for signs of damage or excessive wear.

2005 ford explorer had sudden loud knocking and codes P0174, P0300,P0316


Well code 174 is for a lean fuel system on bank two.
Code 300 is for a random miss and code 316 is for a miss on startup.
For some reason you may not be getting enough fuel to the cylinders on bank two, or you could have a major vac leak.

Started running rough advance auto told wife there were two codes p0305 p0316 our 2003 ford explorer 4.0 6 cy


The problem is at the 5th cylinder and a misfire during start up based on the error code. Inspect first the said cylinder. Check if there is spark or if you need to have the plug replaced. It could also be a bad high tension wire. This may solve the 2nd issue which may have triggered it.

What is drive cycle miles to make ready emission test on ford f150 5.0 engine?


a drive cycle is not measured in miles driven but in the type of driving done, here is a ford drive cycle procedure to clear the not ready code.

Ford Motor Company Driving Cycle Description of OBDII Drive Cycle
The following procedure is designed to execute and complete the OBDII monitors and to clear the Ford P1000, I/M readiness code. To complete a specific monitor for repair verification, follow steps 1 through 4, then continue with the step described by the appropriate monitor found under the "OBDII Monitor Exercised" column. When the ambient air temperature is outside 4.4 to 37.8°C (40 to 100° F), or the altitude is above 2438 meters (8000 feet), the EVAP monitor will not run. If the P1000 code must be cleared in these conditions, the PCM must detect them once (twice on some applications) before the EVAP monitor can be "bypassed" and the P1000 cleared. The Evap "bypassing" procedure is described in the following drive cycle.
The OBDII Drive Cycle will be performed using a scan tool. Consult the instruction manual for each described function. NOTE: A detailed description of a Powertrain Control Module (PCM) Reset is found in this section, refer to the table of contents.
Drive Cycle Recommendations:
  1. Most OBDII monitors will complete more readily using a "steady foot" driving style during cruise or acceleration modes. Operating the throttle in a "smooth" fashion will minimize the time required for monitor completion.
  2. Fuel tank level should be between 1/2 and 3/4 fill with 3/4 fill being the most desirable.
  3. The Evaporative Monitor can only operate during the first 30 minutes of engine operation. When executing the procedure for this monitor, stay in part throttle mode and drive in a smooth fashion to minimize "fuel slosh".
WARNING
STRICT OBSERVANCE OF POSTED SPEED LIMITS AND ATTENTION TO DRIVING CONDITIONS ARE MANDATORY WHEN PROCEEDING THROUGH THE FOLLOWING DRIVE CYCLES.

For best results, follow each of the following steps as accurately as possible:
