Question about Ford Taurus

1 Answer

My 2000 Ford Taurus has 5 code problems right now, I can't remember the codes off the top of my head, but they all had to do with the o2 sensors and bank 1 and 2 running lean. The car is shutting off when I let it sit too long without pressing on the gas.

Engine light came on. i have a programer and this is the code it read out to me po138 u2 (h02s-12) ckt (h1, s2)

A code P0138 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Faulty O2 sensor
  • Short to battery voltage in O2 sensor signal circuit
  • High fuel pressure (not as likely)

Here are some potential solutions:
  • Replace O2 sensor
  • Repair short to battery voltage in o2 sensor signal circuit

Hope helps (remember to rate this).

EGR EVP Sensor

Right on top of the EGR, (Exhaust Gas Recirculation), valve, which is on top of the intake.

Looks like this,

Now, let's talk. The guy's and gal's at the auto parts stores, are just there to sell auto parts, not diagnose cars, pickup trucks, and so on. Nice that they try to help, but an ODB II scanner just shows generic information.

What I'm stating by that, is that you could buy that expensive part, and this may not cure your problem, and/or you could damage your computer if the procedure isn't done correctly.

The P1400 code states,
1.DPF EGR signal circuit shorted to ground
2.DPF EGR signal VREF circuit open
3.DPF EGR sensor is damaged or has failed
4.PCM has failed (Powertrain Control Module)
5.TSB 4-3-1 contains repair information for this trouble code

You need a scanner that is the NGR, (New Generation Star), or has the capability to read
Ford Enhanced Data.

This connects to the PCM in the harness. (It's located on top of the engine) If the procedure isn't done right, you can "Let the smoke out", of the PCM.
You also have to reset the computer to clear the error code.

I know shop time is expensive, but sometimes it leads to less expense in the long run.

1996 Ford Taurus Chugging MAF

Did you buy a Ford MAF sensor? There are some brands that are not reliable or accurate. Buy a Ford MAF sensor, if your mechanic has decided that the MAF is faulty. You may have a leaking fuel injector, bad coolant temp sensor,bad oxygen sensor,dirty air filter, clogged exhaust system.
