Some 2006 F-150 and Mark LT vehicles equipped with a 4.6L or 5.4L engine may illuminate the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) with a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) of P0606. Some vehicles equipped with 4.6L and 5.4L engine may exhibit a high idle or fast idle conditions and the 5.4L engine may exhibit an intermittent hard start.
