first permit me say the this is the very first time i"ve run right into a difficulty with my truck and couldn"t find an answer on this site or anywhere else.I have actually a 2000 4x4 with a 3.0L flex. A week earlier my check engine light came on. The auto was running fine therefore didn"t carry out anything about until saturday. I had my girlfriend at the ford dealer inspect the computer and he said the code had something to do with the flex fuel sensor. He clearing the code however the cel came back right away. The next day i was driving down the highway and the engine began to sputter. I pulled over, checked the connection at the flex sensor and also everything looked ok. I restarted the engine, every little thing seemed come be to run fine therefore istarted steering again. Within 10 miles, the sputtered and also stalled top top me 3 more times. After the it wouldn"t operation anymore. It would certainly start, sputter come 2000 rpm"s climate stall.i asked some of the techs at the ford dealer what castle thought and also they had no clue. We can"t buy E85 here so they had never viewed a flex fuel ranger, therefore they had actually no reservation what the difficulty was. Maybe the sensor but even with my friend employee discount it would cost 700 to 800 bucks for the sensor.anybody ever have this problem. I would gain a sensor native a wrecker however like ns said, there"s no other flex ranger here and i can"t discover one ~ above the internet. Sorry because that the long article but i want to provide you males as much information as i have the right to to assist diagnose this problem.P.S. As soon as my truck was getting towed to mine friends shop, the wind captured my box cover and smashed out my rear window. Talk around a poor day!

WHERE is this sensor located, and also what exactly is the OBD-II code for it?Second, I find it tough to believe Ford could carry a low-price van to industry with an $800+ sensor in it.Thirdly, if you"re to run gas and only gas, then just "false" or "peg" the output voltage of this sensor come what it requirements to be because that gas, utilizing a resistor to the supply (+5V?) of the sensor.Some man on Craigslist in Illinois is offering the whole engine, all wiring harnesses and also sensors from a 2000 Flex Ranger for $100... Heck, if simply the MAF or one head is good, it"s a steal.As for your rear window, the sounds favor the tow truck driver didn"t secure something... Document against your insurance co.

the sensor is situated on the inside part of the frame rail,roughly under the driver seat. The cost of the sensor for the ford dealer is 615$, sleeve is 1220$ and also it"s only stocked in the U.S.(takes a week to order indigenous here). This is canadian prices, i"m certain it"s cheaper because that you men in the U.S.. If mine friend has actually the time, he"s going to get the code(s) from the computer system for me today or tomorrow. I witnessed the guy selling the engine ~ above craigs list but he only lists engine sensors. This sensor would certainly be classified as component on the fuel lines. Also the guys at the dealership couldn"t beleive just how much the sensor is. Castle think the sensor is speak i"m to run E85 so it"s pumping too much fuel. When i do manage to get it started, that sounds choose i"m to run a deisel and there"s alot of black color smoke coming out of the tailpipe.thanks fixizin, the voltage resistor is a great idea. I"ll have actually to check into that. Does anybody understand what the voltage need to be once running continual gas? the tow truck company refuses come pay because that the window. They to speak it"s my error for no locking it(i don"t even have the an essential for it). I view their point, i sould have actually thought about it however i had actually other things on mine mind. No big deal because my occupational is going to pay my deductible.
