Purchased an 04 Taurus with OHV 3.0 that had been sitting up for almost a year due to bads transmission. Replaced transmission and suddenly car started running terribly and was diagnosed with no compression on 1 3 5. Took valve cover off and all intake lifters had disentegrated. Replaced all the lifters and car ran well till I drove it down the road for about 10 miles then started bucking and bogging out. Motor eventually dies but restarts almost immediately and runs strong for another mile or so... Codes are 0132...0174...2196...071...091...2197... It was also discovered the cars gas had turned to varnish but has been replaced along with fuel filter

well where to start...

0132 and 0174 are oxygen sensor codes
091 is fuel pressure regulator circuit open
071 unknown

2196 and 2197 refer to a tsb regarding a computer reflash which I have attached...

first, make sure the fuel pressure regulator is connected...Check into the computer reflash, Third, while 0132 and 0174 are oxygen sensor codes id check your Mass air flow sensor... It sounds like a MAF Sensor issue... Find somebody with a scan tool and check the engine load percent while idling aswell as long term fuel trim... post idle engine load % and long term fuel trim for both banks... ONLY CONSIDER MAF AND/OR OXYGEN SENSORS AFTER THAT REFLASH!!!!!


good luck,

Josh
