Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist you today. Give me just a moment to review your post, and I'll be right back with the help you need.
Can you tell me the model of your 2012 as well as the engine size please?
Unless your Edge is designed to burn E 85 fuel you do not want o mix them. That being said the check engine light comes on when the computer sees a system fault and when this happens the system will detect it and set and store a fault code and or codes. In order to determine what is causing the light to come on the first thing that need to be done is to have the system scanned to see what the fault code and or code is that is setting. Most auto part store such as Auto Zone will run a scan for you at no charge. If you can stop by and get the code and or codes retrieved I can advise you on what is failing.
Yes if it calls for E 85 then thats what you should be using. How much fuel is in the tank now?
That may be the problem, I think you should run as much of it out as you can and then top it off with the correct fuel and clear the computer by disconnecting the negative battery cable and see if the light returns.
If the gas cap calls for E 85 then thats what the engine is designed for.
You can run it out by driving it.
Knowing the fault code and or codes that are setting would also be very helpful for determine the cause of the light to come on.
Okay, Im here all day.
No regular gas should not have caused the no start. The problem would be if you put E 85 in one that is not designed for it. Putting regular gas in yours could cause performance issue but should not cause a no start.
Okay then the fuel is not likely the issue, can you get the scan done and post back with the fault code. That will tell us what we need to know as far as what is causing the problem your having.
Your Edge is likely considered a flex fuel vehicle which means you can run both regular unleaded 87 octane or E 85 100 Octane. If in fact that is the case and I suspect it is then the fuel is not the problem. The check engine light will tell us what going on.
In most case its written on the emblem on the fender and or the deck lid. Give me your vin number and I can also look it up.
Your Oasis report shows you have a 3.5 engine and its not showing you have a flex fuel system. See it in the link below.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/oasi%20Sept%2021.pdf
Yes that is correct. Gas is not likely the issues so where back to the scan to see what the fault code is that is setting.
That indicates you do have a flex fuel vehicle which means you can run both type of fuel so fuel is not the problem.
If in fact you have a flex fuel which is looks like you have it should not matter. It should run on both with no issues.
Yes if its a flex fuel engine. In order to determine what is failing here we need to know what the fault code and or codes are that have set when the check engine light came on.
If you can get the scan done I can advise from there with no guessing.
No problem , Im here all day. Post back when you can and we can work from there.
The code P2198 indacates the O2 Sensor Signal Biased/Stuck Rich - Bank 2, Sensor 1 is failing . In most cases this means the sensor is failing providing you have no engine vacuum leaks. I think you should remove the negative battery cable and clear the code and see if it resets and if so consider replacing the Bank 2 HO2S sensor.
Both of these code are for the Bank #1 HO2S sensor. If you do not have any vacuum leaks then in most cases this means the HO2S has failed. I would clear them first and see if they reset before you replace anything thing.
