Police interceptor explorer

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Interceptor?

2015 25222 miles

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

No it’s a county police car. I was just hoping that it was something simple since it was fine yesterday and it’s sudden. Also seems to be running fine. Plenty of power

No I just need to know if it’s something simple

Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

The most common cause for this code is a stuck open canister purge valve. I have seen the canister vent valve stuck closed cause this code but the purge valve is much more common. I would say I replace 100 purge valves for every vent valve. Instructions for replacement at link.

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

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
