Customer Question
Ford 2005 Taurus SE...

Ford 2005 Taurus SE Engine light on code pulled PO174 but 1 year ago mechanic said to show Ford this number TSB - 06 - 20 - 10 is that a recall on this but its old an expired.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has your vehicle stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code?

Trouble code pulled says PO174 so I am going down to check intake air leaks and PVC hose connections but the car is running fine and the light has been on for 2 years. Last year they asked me to go to the Ford Dealer and tell them that they found TSB-06-20-10 and thought that is something they fix for free right?

Mechanic's Assistant: The Mechanics require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost.

How much?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Taurus yourself? What have you tried so far?

I printed PO174 FORD-Fuel Injection System Too Lean Bank 2 for possible causes which they show 9 items and will check myself 2 of the items but the rest I will need to go to mechanic.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Do you know how much they charge?

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 needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

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.

BRNew Jersey
