Customer: replied 5 years ago.
2005 ford 150 truck started to sputter and stalled when comming to astop it started and stalled a couple of times. finally stayed running but still sputtered when i would let off on throttle. I purchased truck with hypertec power programmer 111 and was able to look up problem codes when I arrived home. codesp0172 0175 (said fuel to rich port 1 and 2. dont know what other two codes mean p061b and p2106.
Expert:  Steve S replied 5 years ago.

Hi there these two codes can be taken care of with a computer reprogramming done at the dealer I have attached the TSB on the topic and those codes. As far as the rich concern could be because of the programmer. Another common cause of a rich condition is the Mass Air Flow sensor located after the air filter, inspect this and make sure that there is no debris on the heating elemnt inside of the air tube. But I think that the programmer could give you these symptoms as they can cause trouble codes and it is possible that it wants to overfuel the engine. But here is the article on those two codes that have to do with the throttle body and the position sensor as you will see there is two codes there if the reprogramming does not work then you will need a new throttle position sensor I have attached the part number also. Thanks Steve

 

ISSUE:

Some vehicles built 11/29/2004 and prior may exhibit the wrench light on with both P2106 and P2135 diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs).

ACTION:

Replace the throttle position sensor (TPS) following the instruction sheet included in the TPS service kit. Reprogram the powertrain control module (PCM) to the latest calibration using WDS release B36.11 and higher, or B37.2 and higher. This new calibration is not included in the B37 CD. Calibration files are also available at www.motorcraft.com.

CAUTION:FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE TPS REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION PROCEDURE WILL RESULT IN DAMAGE TO THE TPS SCREWS.

This condition may occur during a cold start combined with a rapid transmission gear engagement.
