Does any one know of a ODB II tool I can use on my 99 Ranger to reset the
code when my fuel cap is not installed properly.  I am getting tired of
taken to ford and having them reset the code.

Joe,

     Disconnect the battery for 10 minutes.

Leaving the gas cap off or loose...
OBD_II actually has a pressure sensor on the fuel tank, and under certain
conditions, it opens the vapor purge solenoid and pulls a slight vacuum on
the tank to check for leaks... if the sensor sees no vacuum (cap off or
loose) it sets a code.
Putting the cap on properly and driving it a bit will also clear the code.

Subject: Re: I failed my first smog!!


It may sound obvious, but check the air filter.
Also, in your other post, you mentinoed rough idle. If the idle is rough, it usually signifies a
miss. Check for all of the common miss causes - vac leak, bad injector, egr valve, etc.
Is it getting up to temperature. These engines are notorious for thermostats getting stuck open.
If the stat is open, you will not get the engine hot enough to run lean enaough to pass emissions.
Next, I would run a can of injector cleaner through with a half tank of gas. My cats and my o2
have 265k on them and I still pass NC emissions every year.
Yes, I know I should replace my O2.


You wrote:
Is anyone familiar with any smog work to help me get into the passing
area? Here is what happens:

Tim, this maybe something for you to tell me about!

Here is what happens at idle.

HC 1390 ppm
CO2: 10.7 %
Co: 5.94 %
O2: 2.3 %

As you can see, WAY to rich.

So, I went home, pulled the codes, got a 1,1. I was a little bit
stumped, so I checked the idle voltage at the green wire of the TPS when
the plate is fully closed and it was where it should be, .9VDC.

I went to Napa and got a set of new .44 plugs (Autolite) a new brass
cap, and a new brass rotor, and a new O2 sensor. Set me back $112. Owie!

I inspected the old plugs when I pulled them. Everything looked fine. I
was curious to see what the MSD would do to plugs, but everything looked
good, tips were a mixture of grey and orange.

I checked the compression, and every cylinder hit at least 140 PSI on
the first stroke, and by the third they were all at 165. Things seem in
order...

This truck has spent all of it's life up in Ukiah, so it has never had a
smog check before in it's life. Could the cats have gone bad? The smog
guy suggested the O2 sensor, and perhaps since my original cats were
still on the truck that they might be due for service too. 172K+ miles
on the ticker.

I don't know what to think. I get 17 city MPG, and 19 HWY on 92 octane.

The computer chip I got from James Duff says that nothing is adjusted in
the emmissions, and the new ADS Super Injectors are CARB certified.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Adam

Here is information from several newsgroup notes I saved.....
I have not tried any of this.

Have the Ford dealer checkout service bulletin  "Tech serv. bulletin
98-7-3".   Or try rfi filter Part# F1PZ-18B925-A



HELP!

I'm at my wits' end trying to tackle severe QRN from '91 Ford Explorer
while working hf mobile. This trash approaches S9 on 40 and
obliterates any signals weaker than that.

Talk to your dealer about a Ford Service Bulletin 98-7-3.  It is about
the modification/filter for the electric fuel pump in the gas tank.  If
you're going to have it done, don't fill the tank prior o the service
and leave as little fuel in the tank as possible.  The pump is in the
tank.....

Re: Ford Explorer hf noise

Ford trucks and cars have been doing this for at least 10 years. A large
cap. on the fuel pump worked on my 1990 Ford truck

This Ford fuel pump problem began many years ago with the
introduction of the Taurus.   At that time a simple fix involved
removing the back seat (to gain access to the pump and
wiring, at least on this model)  and placing a garden variety
.1 MF cap across the positive/negative leads.   It has been
sometime, but I have to wonder if the later models might
benefit from the same treatment, although it is doubtful that
many other pumps would be this accessible.


I tried the dealer... no luck! Anyone got the part number for the filter so
I can order one. Thanks in advance...
