Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.
Have you done any diagnostic steps for these codes yet and do you need those steps?
Any running issues noticed?
These codes are related to the timing and variable cam timing. I recommend adding one gallon of kerosene to the oil. Run the engine at 2000 rpms for one minute. Then an hour later run it again for a minute at 2000 rpms. Then drain the oil and filter over night, refill with the correct oil and filter. In the event the issues come back then you will need to start replacing parts or doing diag that is going to be hard to come to a conclusion on if the issue is not occurring at the time of testing. The cam timing components are highly controlled by engine oil quality, viscosity, flow, and pressure. The more common causes of these codes are faulty cam phasers and VCT solenoids. If the Ford pinpoint tests are needed let me know and I will upload those. My files are down for maintenance but will be up later if those tests are needed.
