JA: What year is your Ford?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

Is the 0475 the only code?

Does it run great and rev up fine in park?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It has multiple codes. P0470. P0264. P1501. P0476. P1316. It runs fine in park. But as soon as you try and move check engine light comes on and runs ruff
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's a diesel. There are no spark plugs?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.


0470 normally means the EBP tube is clogged and the EBP sensor is bad.

0264 Cylinder 2 injector bad or the wire harness built into the valve cover is faulty.

1501 vehicle speed sensor reading incorrect, its on the rear axle.

0476 same as code 0470

1316 means the IDM detects fuel injector codes.

If the Ford diag steps are needed let me know. So far it looks like your running concerns are going to be a faulty injector #2 and the EBP sensor bad or tube clogged.

If your confused on what to do now. You have already been charged the full question value. It's now time to compensate the tech that helped you. The only way I can continue to work here and help customers is by getting rated. If your not pleased yet or plan not to rate me. Let me know so I can help more, close the post, or opt out. Please let me know if you are pleased with my help.

Thanks Moose.

Hello again Chris here,

I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears you're not pleased, or need more help.

Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. I have the option to call you if that would be better.

Thanks Chris
