Customer Question

hi george - i just replaced the max flow sensor and now im getting "vacuum hoses clogged or leaking" from the code list. I can't figure out what's causing that.
JA: Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?
Customer: I went to auto zone and used their check engine sensor. i thing it was 176 and the description listed the vacuum hoses as the problem
JA: What is the model/year of your Ford?
Customer: 03 Ranger 3.0
JA: Are you fixing your Ranger yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Nothing yet, trying to figure out which hoses could be the problem. I can only identify one hose that runs from the evap to the header
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: just if there are more hoses and where the heck hey are located.
