Question about 2004 Ford Freestar

Engine codes run on 2004 Freestar

I just had engine codes run on my 2004 Freestar because the 'check engine' light has been on. It came back as "Lean Front Bank" and "Lean Rear Bank". What does this mean? This started after I had a hole in the vacuum hose, and my husband replaced it, but the 'check engine' light has not gone off yet, after a few weeks of daily driving.

Make sure you have all the vacuum leaks repaired.
Disconnect the battery for two mins,codes my clear.
The codes you got are O2 Sensors,because of the vacuum leak,which leaned out the readings and set the codes.

I cleaned the MAF sensor and wires, I also replaced the MAF sensor. The engine is still hesitating, but only when it is very cold outside. Should I try cleaning the wires again?


is the check engine light on?

Do not physically touch the heated wires, they are ceramic coated and sensitive. Only spray tehm With carb cleaner or MAF sensor cleaner.

It sounds like you are running lean. IF your TPS is adjustable, it may need adjusting. TPS = throttel position sensor. Other than that, a bad intake air temperature sensor or bad upstream O2 sensor should turn on your check engine light.

Engine vibration at idle, goes away after a little acceleration, mostly when the engine is still cold..


Check the rpm gauge while running. If the RPM needle fluxuates while idling that is caused by a defective spark plug and or a spark plug wire

2004 Ford Freestar SEL sputtering, check engine light flickering.


Engine lamp will come on if idle is too low / fuel mixture is too lean or too rich.
A faulty spark plug will cause this also.

It may be a code peculiar to Ford. You may need to check with a Ford dealer service department. Better code scanners reveal what the code refers to. Check with some place like Autozone??

Cleaning the Mass Air Flow Sensor


i will try to help. 171/174 indicates lean condition in engine. the mass air flow sensor is located in the rubber tube going to throttlebody. you can try to clean it. using mild carb cleaner safe for sensors, remove sensor from tube. spray clean the tiny wires located in the cylinder. do not touch them, they are very delicate. these engines are also notorious for leaking intake gaskets and faulty pcv valves. these will all set these 2 codes. feel free with anymore questions.

Engine light on mazda tribute 2002


Have it checked again and see what code it is. if it is P0401 it is probably the sensor shown below, The DPFE (Diferential Pressure Sensor)sensor is usually mounted on the engine and is connected to the pipe that runs from the exhaust manifold to the EGR valve with two rubber hoses. When the sensor goes bad, the Check Engine light comes on and typically sets any or all of teh following fault codes: P0171 & P0174 (lean codes), and/or P0401 (insufficient EGR flow). Nine out of ten times, the fault is not a bad EGR valve or a vacuum leak, but a bad DPFE sensor. A replacement costs about $112 at Ford, or about $48 at an aftermarket auto parts store.I hope this helps.
