It is doubtful that all these things went bad at the same time,it sounds like your shop is just guessing, i think i would try a different shop, and keep this in mind the dealer is not were you find the best mechanics it takes allot more knowledge to repair many different makes and modules of cars, most good mechanics start a dealer them migrate to an independent shop.

    Take your car to most national chain autoparts stores and they will run a free scan of your computer and will print out all the codes it is calling out. That will help in narrowing down your problem. Engine lights are all emissions/ignition related so depending on the issue it could be anything from mass air flow, EGR, down to ignition coils/spark plugs or a bad gas cap. The one's in my area that I know do this is Advance Auto and Autozone.

Has misfire codes and idles and runs bad


replace spark plugs, spark plug wires, fuel filter, and add some injector cleaner to the gas. Any change? if not it could be something to do with your ignition system, or fuel injectors, or maybe even engine timing.

Have to replace egr gaskets that burn away or tubes that rust out

What you have is exhaust system leaks & a lack of fuel control or
fuel trim, where the oxygen sensors are saying one thing and the cars computer doesn't know about the unmetered air getting in after
the maf sensor,thus the poor perfromance

You can not have ANY vacuum leaks-- evap system,intake,exhaust,
you get the idea

Try removing & capping the vacuum hoses to egr
The egr valve may be bad

Replace any oxygen sensors over 100,000,miles
Replace spark plugs in motor over 3 years
Clean Maf Sensor (crc maf cleaner)

Engine runs rough wont idle in drive


1. replaced the air filter
2. replaced the PCV valve
3. inspected the PCV hose and connectors (nothing wrong)
4. ran a tank of gas with fuel injector cleaner
5. tested the EGR valve by pulling the vacuum hose off the top, and blocking the hose. The idle didn't smooth out. I applied a vacuum to the EGR valve manually and the car immediately stalled which tells me that the EGR valve itself is working fine.

Possible causes are as follows, I suspect you have an intake air/vacuum leak or a faulty MAF sensor. - Intake air leaks
- Faulty front heated oxygen sensor
- Ignition misfiring
- Faulty fuel injectors
- Exhaust gas leaks
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Lack of fuel
- Faulty Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor
- Incorrect Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) hose connection

1994 ford mustang v6 3.8l bank 1 and 2 system too lean


yes you have a clooged injector. you can try running a bunch of cleaner through it. also could be the iat sensor(intake air temp) if you put an aftermarket intake on make sure u use the iat on the new duct work. id do the cleaner and the iat sensor and that should be good also check for other vacume leaks from hoses and from egr valve

Ford e150 codes: p0401, p1401 and p0174. read the more details to see what the symptoms are.


Stop, DO NOT replace expensive parts or O2 sensor! Ford Explorer codes p0174 , p0401 , rough idle and check engine light on. First thoroughly check all of the hoses and elbows connected to the intake and EGR (vacuum system) for splits, cracks, holes or tears, this could quickly cause these codes and fixes for less than $10. Check all connectors and the EGR valve sensor it could have a crack as well, inspect thoroughly because a split sensor could appear attached to the vacuum hoses but hoses could just be sitting there not actually attached due to a split or crack. This was my problem replaced the EGR valve sensor and the two little vacuum hoses attached to them for $50-60 with in stock parts at the local parts store. Took less than 10 minutes to replace and is easily accessible, the check engine light turned off immediately without having to reset the codes by disconnecting the battery, idle became normal and fuel efficiency better. If you have THOROUGHLY inspected every hose, connector and elbow and found no issues, clean the MAF with electrical contact cleaner ( let dry) and clean the EGR with carbon cleaner. A dirty MAF or EGR could also cause these codes to pop up. If this still doesn't work, then consider replacing the EGR, if that isn't it then try the O2 sensor. Good luck!

Check your main relay. It powers the fuel pump and the ignition system. They are a known problem, with a high failure rate, on the 90-93 accords. I do believe it's worth checking.

What is code P0171?


P0171

A lean fuel condition can be caused by:

* Low fuel pressure due to a weak pump or leaky fuel pressure regulator. (use a fuel pressure gauge to check fuel pressure at idle)

* Dirty fuel injectors. (try cleaning the injectors)

* Vacuum leaks at the intake manifold, vacuum hose connections or throttle body. (Use a vacuum gauge to check for low intake vacuum)

* Leaky EGR valve. (Check operation of EGR valve)

* Leaky PCV Valve or hose. (Check valve and hose connections)

* Dirty or defective Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF). (Try cleaning the MAF sensor wires or filament with aerosol electronics cleaner. Do NOT use anything else to clean the sensor, and do not touch the sensor wires

99 CHEVY trouble shoot code P0171


LEAN TROUBLE CODES (P0171 or P0174) A code P0171 or P0174 indicate the engine is running lean. This means there is too much air and/or not enough fuel. You can confirm the engine is running lean by looking at Short Term Fuel Trim (STFT) and Long Term Fuel Trim (LTFT). Normally, STFT and LTFT should be plus or minus 8 from zero. If STFT and/or LTFT are more than about +10 or higher, it indicates the engine is running LEAN. Negative numbers (-10 or more) indicates the engine is running RICH. A lean fuel condition can be caused by:

* Low fuel pressure due to a weak pump or leaky fuel pressure regulator. (use a fuel pressure gauge to check fuel pressure at idle)

* Dirty fuel injectors. (try cleaning the injectors)

* Vacuum leaks at the intake manifold, vacuum hose connections or throttle body. (Use a vacuum gauge to check for low intake vacuum)

* Leaky EGR valve. (Check operation of EGR valve)

* Leaky PCV Valve or hose. (Check valve and hose connections)

* Dirty or defective Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF). (Try cleaning the MAF sensor wires or filament with aerosol electronics cleaner. Do NOT use anything else to clean the sensor, and do not touch the sensor wires)

______________________________-- Causes A code P0171 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters may cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
  • There could be a vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor.
Possible Solutions Possible solutions include:
  • In the vast majority of cases, simply cleaning the MAF sensor does the trick. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
  • Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
  • Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressure

Very occassionally i have loss of power and black smoke from the exhaust of my ford focas tdci estate 2002 model. It lasts for only about 500 yards then the smoke clears and it surges forward and is o.k.....


MAF?

The mass airflow sensor is located right after the airfilter and can be the source of the problem you describe.

Sounds like it is overfuelling during these episodes.
