Okay. P2106 is for the computer went into failure mode and all other codes should be fixed first. I will look up the other codes and get back in a minute.

Ford Mechanic: Jaybird61, ASE Certified Master Technician replied 7 months ago

The code P0320 is for the crankshaft position sensor and code P2006 is for the intake manifold runner control problem.

Did you have any of these codes fixed yet?

No, ive watch the rpm speed while cranking it or while its running and it seems very accurate.
the p2006 shouldn't cause it not to start should it?
Ford Mechanic: Jaybird61, ASE Certified Master Technician replied 7 months ago

If the crank sensor does not give a signal it can cause a hard start or no start or stall. The intake runner control if in wrong position or leaks can cause hesitation or low power on take off.

I can view the rpm with the scan toll and it seems to be working good
Ford Mechanic: Jaybird61, ASE Certified Master Technician replied 7 months ago

Do you have the 4.6 or 5.4. You may not see any problems in the data of the crank sensor by looking at the rpms since it gives the computer a lot more data than see on screen. If you got a code for it and sensor is cheap and easy to replace I would recommend replacing it first.

5.4
Ford Mechanic: Jaybird61, ASE Certified Master Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay. Start with the crank sensor and clear codes and see if other codes come back for the intake manifold runner control.

Ford Mechanic: Jaybird61, ASE Certified Master Technician replied 7 months ago

For the P2006 the most common repair is replacement of the intake manifold. This is why i suggest replacing the crank sensor first unless you want to replace both. The intake internal flaps will bind and cause the P2006. Either of these problems will cause engine to go into failure mode and store code P2106.

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.
