Ford Mechanic: tims auto repair, mechanic replied 6 months ago

from the way you explain the problem and from the codes you get..the problem may be the variable timing solenoid, sometimes these can get dirty and sick..you could try removing the solenoid and cleaning it with carb cleaner then reinstall it and it may work fine,though you may need to replace it...i would think you are getting the lean/rich codes 2196 and 2197 because of the 0012 code

thanks

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

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
