I have a obd2 code puller, it only read something about emissions leak (minor). I think that is being triggered by the poor engine performance. I have the owners manual, but it is no use for this problem that I can see. I had a good manual on CD, last time I needed it was about 3 years ago, I can not find it now, but I do have the 2000-2004 Ford Service Manual, it is some what helpful but is designed for a trained technician and is not as helpful as the one made for dummies. but I did find the access points to take fuel pressure readings, they are nearly impossible to get to and has some type of 1/4" square head plug you have to remove then you have to have some type of threaded adapter so you can connect your gauge. What in the world was ford pin heads thinking?? why not put a shradder valve in an accessible point, it would not be like no one has ever done it that way before. good grief.
for ford engineers
I have read through the stickies, not much there that applies to my situation all though I did get my skull filled with some great info. I am considering getting the AE program at around $350 it seems to be my only choice.
thanks for the help
