I have a ford 500 with a check engine light on and the codes are P061B and P2106 what do they mean and what do I need to replace or fix? Thanks for your help.
I went to autozone and they gave me the code errors and suggested I come online to see what I need to do.

also a wrong air filter can cause this code. make sure you use a motorcraft air filter, you can buy them right at wal-mat. and the only way the light will go out is if you have the computer cleared after the problem has been fixed

if I can be anymore help just ask
I do not know if you recieved this part of my message. the codes are for the computer seeing a fault in sensor readings. here is a message for the problem. check all the air hose from the air cleaner to engine and make sure the air cleaner cover is on right.
