the first thing to do if it is running okay it returns, it may have been a momentary stuck intake manifold runner control.That is after checking all the connections.

the first thing to do is "it returns"? i have checked all connections,the engine light with this code came up after i replaced the starter there is nothing in that area that could of triggered this code, do i need to clear the code and see id it comes up again?
is there a way to clear the code without having a code reader?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
