The oxygen (O2) sensors are located in the exhaust system. There are three O2 sensors and one Catalyst Monitor, one in each of the exhaust headers near each of the front wheels and the third in the common exhaust pipe further back. A special deep socket is available from any parts store to remove the sensors. The socket has a **** down its length to accommodate the sensor wire permanently attached. Simply disconnect the bullet connector and unscrew the sensor.

What is drive cycle miles to make ready emission

What is drive cycle miles to make ready emission test on ford f150 5.0 engine?

Posted by on

Answer

  • Most Helpful of 2 Answers

a drive cycle is not measured in miles driven but in the type of driving done, here is a ford drive cycle procedure to clear the not ready code.

Ford Motor Company Driving Cycle Description of OBDII Drive Cycle
The following procedure is designed to execute and complete the OBDII monitors and to clear the Ford P1000, I/M readiness code. To complete a specific monitor for repair verification, follow steps 1 through 4, then continue with the step described by the appropriate monitor found under the "OBDII Monitor Exercised" column. When the ambient air temperature is outside 4.4 to 37.8°C (40 to 100° F), or the altitude is above 2438 meters (8000 feet), the EVAP monitor will not run. If the P1000 code must be cleared in these conditions, the PCM must detect them once (twice on some applications) before the EVAP monitor can be "bypassed" and the P1000 cleared. The Evap "bypassing" procedure is described in the following drive cycle.
The OBDII Drive Cycle will be performed using a scan tool. Consult the instruction manual for each described function. NOTE: A detailed description of a Powertrain Control Module (PCM) Reset is found in this section, refer to the table of contents.
Drive Cycle Recommendations:

  1. Most OBDII monitors will complete more readily using a "steady foot" driving style during cruise or acceleration modes. Operating the throttle in a "smooth" fashion will minimize the time required for monitor completion.
  2. Fuel tank level should be between 1/2 and 3/4 fill with 3/4 fill being the most desirable.
  3. The Evaporative Monitor can only operate during the first 30 minutes of engine operation. When executing the procedure for this monitor, stay in part throttle mode and drive in a smooth fashion to minimize "fuel slosh".
WARNING
STRICT OBSERVANCE OF POSTED SPEED LIMITS AND ATTENTION TO DRIVING CONDITIONS ARE MANDATORY WHEN PROCEEDING THROUGH THE FOLLOWING DRIVE CYCLES.

For best results, follow each of the following steps as accurately as possible:

What does a fuel pressure

What does a fuel pressure sensor do?

Posted by on

Answer

  • Most Helpful of 2 Answers

It determines the fuel pressure in the line from your fuel pump to the engine. If the pressure is high enough, the pump can cycle off temporarily or at least slow down until the pressure gets low enough again to need to turn it back on. If that sensor is not working, your fuel pump may stay turned on when it is not needed or may stay turned off when it is needed causing either too much pressure or not enough pressure to keep the engine supplied with the proper amount of fuel. You need just the right amount of fuel pressure or your engine will run rough due to the air to fuel mixture being wrong. There is also a mass air flow sensor so that the computer can calculate how much air and how much fuel are entering the engine at any given time. This is all computer controlled, but it does rely on the sensors to tell it what's going on. I hope this helps.

How to remove the gas tank from a Ford explorer

How to remove the gas tank from a Ford explorer sport

Posted by on

Answer

  • Most Helpful of 1 Answers

The first thing you want to do is to siphon as much fuel as possible to get rid of some of the extra weight.Then disconnect the negative cable from the battery.Diconnect the hoses from the fill tube and the vent tube from the tank.Remove any hoses visible on the outside of the tank and lable if necessary.On some models they have a sid plate that covers the tank, if so remove the skid plate supporting the tank.Now you want to disconnect the electrical connectors and fuel lines.Some have an access panel under the rear seat.If there is no access panel then there are 2 bands that hold the tank in place loosen the straps but don't drop the tank until you find the connector and fuel lines.Lower the tank supporting the tank preventing it from completely falling enough to gain access to the fittings and connector.A tool is going to have to be used to remove the fuel lines.These are very inexpensive at your local auto parts store.Once disconnected then lower the tank slowly so that if if gets hung up letting it down nothing gets broke.If there is an evap canister mounted to the tank this will also have to be removed.Hope this helps you out.
