Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. To answer your question, yes. This sensor, if faulty will cause the vehicle to have hard starts and, since the PCM uses information from this sensor to adjust the amount of fuel that the engine receives, it can also cause the vehicle to run rich/lean on fuel. Here, I am attaching code and vehicle specific information for this vehicle along with replacement information and description and operation.

What Customers are Saying:

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.

MollyUSA

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

BRNew Jersey
