Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Unfortunately do not know the exact codes. The mechanic just said that the 3 of the 4 O2 sensors were 'Stuck' and not coming off of lean condition. He did also mention that the Purge Solenoid needed to be changed out as well. I beleve there was a code for that as well. I will have to get the exact codes from him on Monday.
OK, I had a hard time getting the codes, but here they are:
Not sure why the P1152 would show up twice, but it did.
Right now, the car seems to be jumpy when driving down the road. Also, when at a stop, it will IDL @ around 800 RPM, then jump down to around 200 for a half second then back to 800. Almost acts like it's going to die. This last summer, I had 3 occasions where it was over 100 degrees outside and after about 10-15 minutes of driving, the car started to sputter and loose power like the fuel filter was clogged or something. At the time to codes were 'Lean Condition' (I don't remember the exact codes) from the O2 sensors and I was told it may be a back preasure issue due to the exahust being replaced by the prevous owner. He clained the O2 sensors were not the issue.
Again, thank you in advance for your time and advice,
Check fuse #8 in the inside fuse panel to see if its blown if so replace. Otherwise it sounds like you may have a a wiring problem. You will need to check for good power and ground on the heater circuit and I think you will find the problem there. If not you will need to go through and inspect each code one by one. The evap purge solenoid may be a unrelated problem if the check engine light was already on before but if it was off and these all came at once then it is likely related. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

I checked fuse slot #8 under the hood and there was no fuse there. I got a couple and when I tried inserting it, it just fell into the slot. This slot is a 'dummy' slot as is 9-12. Is there different wiring configurations for different Mustangs? Slot's # XXXXX have MAXI fusee, but 8-12 do not.

Any further assistance would be appreciated.
Thanks again, Mark.
I'm so sorry, but I just realized that you said the 'inside' fuse panel. I apologize. I just went out and found the Slot #8 fuse (10 amp) in the inside fuse panel and it checked out good.
Sorry about that. My mistake.
