I NEED HELP
Russ, ya got to just chase each code as they come up because you have been working on the system and may have even created some issue.
You will get it all cleared with some patience.
Hang in there.
Sure. You can sometimes chase the fox when he is faster than you until you get him cornered.
Your working on a total computer controlled system that you need to know more about when the fault become elusive.
The designers at this point did not put in the program anything other than codes for which you need to know about how they are fault generated.
Too many owners fly off with the first familuar words they see and waist money on a part they may not need.
The Ford discription of the fault and the causes are the key to looking at the hardwere for the source of the problem.
Many actions are interdependent such that the end result is a code that was the only way the system could tell the outside world what may have happened in some other part of the system that affected the table issuing the code.
This means you have to look in the associated areas sometimes for the fault.
You always go with the latest codes set for trouble shooting and never old history.
If you do, confusion comes into play.
And it's doubley tough when two faults are present at the same time and is not recognized as such.
thanks, i went ahead and bought a obo code reader and it is saying P0305 so that is telling me it is the same cylinder so im going to back track from were i ended and hope that the coil pack might be faulty because the code was not showing before i changed it.
