Customer reply replied 3 months ago
we cleared the Codes twice. Then went for a test drive and all those popped up even the check engine light was blinking which means that unburnt fuel is Going into my catalytic converter and could cause more problems so I'm afraid to move my truck at this point

when was the last time you gave it a tune up?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I recently did an alignment on my truck. They checked all the codes and check my fluids and checked my spark plugs and all that and everything was fine now all the sudden after I replaced the vvt everything is going haywire
Ford Mechanic: tims auto repair, mechanic replied 3 months ago

ok..i will give you my thoughts on the matter,,will that work for you?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
plz
Ford Mechanic: tims auto repair, mechanic replied 3 months ago

ok..

the first thing you need to do here is to tune it up..new plugs and plug boots..even if you dont replace the plugs,,do replace those boots,,these will just get old and jump spark in the head causing this miss-fire problem..

i think you are getting the cam and crank sensor codes because of the missfire problem,,the computer is trying to retard and advance the timing to make up for the missing..

if it still misses after the plugs/boots..then return that vvt solenoid and get another,,sometimes you will get a bad new one.

if you still have a problem after all this,,then i think your problem may be the crank sensor..

i think replacing the plug boots and that bad new solenoid will fix you
