Sounds like when you ran the car out of gas the fuel pump was damaged, these in tank electric fuel pumps are very small and produce allot pressure and volume, the way they do this is to use the gas around them to cool down, when the pump comes out of fuel when the tank is below 1/4 full it starts to get hot very quickly, since your pump was well used (109000 miles) that was the last straw. When you replace the pump also replace the fuel filter.
I would also clean the throttle valve and idle speed control valve, this may be contributing to the low idle complaint, clear the system after the pump and cleaning by disconnecting the battery for a few moments.

SOURCE: Greetings, I have a 2001

Unfortunately there are several things that code could mean. Unless you still have the number code, it's hard to say. What is not hard to say is that, Ford should have caught that and addressed it in the immediate repair. Sounds like they got all the easy stuff in hopes that you would come back and spend more money. If there is a "check engine" light on, there is an issue and should be checked out and repaired. My first call would be to the Service manager of the dealer and kindly explain the issue that the technician MISSED. If he can't do anything, talk to the General manager. Let me know if you need anything else.

You have a vacuum leak somewhere on the engine, most likely the upper intake gasket, also u do not have 4 O2 sensors the rear ones just monitor the catalytic converter performance, they are not O2's

Codes P2270& P2272 after oil change check engine light on drove under 100 miles both O2 sensors bad .Could shop have caused this somehow??? Maybe banging them or something ?


make sure they are plugged in tight Definition of Diagnostic Trouble Code P2270 Category: Powertrain Definition: O2 Sensor Signal Biased/Stuck Lean Bank 1 Sensor 2Note: This definition of P2270 is applied to all manufacturers

P2270 - O2 Sensor Signal Biased/Stuck Lean Bank 1 Sensor 2 Comments ' Add Yours
Possible causes
- Faulty Rear Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1
- Rear Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 harness is open or shorted
- Rear Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 circuit poor electrical connection
- Exhaust gas leaks Help with this
When is the code detected?
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) detected the HO2S12 sensor has reported a lean condition for an extended period during an intrusive test
Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- High Fuel Consumption
- Excessive Smoke from Exhaust
P2270 Description
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) supplies a voltage of about 450 mV between the HO2S high and low signal circuits. The oxygen sensor varies the voltage over a range from about 1,000 mV when the exhaust is rich, down through about 10 mV when the exhaust is lean.
The PCM monitors and stores the heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) voltage information. The PCMevaluates the HO2S voltage samples in order to determine the amount of time the HO2S voltage was out of range. The PCM compares the stored HO2S voltage samples taken within each sample period and determines if majority of the samples are out of the operating range.

Innova 3100 codes manual


replace your rear oxygen sensor ,,,if that does not clear your code after about a 100 miles than you need a cat converter ,,if you have a bundle of miles on it already that will most likely be your issue

their are really no tricks need to get code for check engine light most auto stores offer this service for free if code is a simple fix repair as necessary --but if you have code and just reset you will have to put miles on vehicle most vehicles take over 100 miles so that all components cat converter-o2 sensors-evap system -etc warm up , reset and run thru their paces code can come back and than you are back to square one so get code and start from there

2004 intrepid replaced MAP sensor and cleared codes. about 100 miles later drove to work, 8hrs later started it and engine started intermittently revving at idle and in gear. had to keep heavy on throttle...


TPS wears in spots and can cause intermittent problems like you described. Try turning off the car and unpluging the TPS. Start the car and see if smooths out the idle/reving problem while the TPS is unplugged. If yes replace the TPS.

Reader show me a code P2270 im trying to find out what that for


P2270 - 02 Bank 1 Sensor 2 signal stuck lean

Switch Sensor indicates lean, this is on the passenger side after the Cat, you will need another sensor. It could be a bad sensor, bad wire connection, I would have replaced all, I know it would have been 200 dollars but now it only 150 to do the remaining three and still cheaper then going to the dealer plus you get four new sensors.

Hope this helps.

My service engine light just came on but i am about 1000 miles past an oil change could that be that problem?


It could be the problem if the car has this type of sensor. Otherwise it is another sensor activating the light. The only way to tell is have a diagnostics test ran to read the engine codes, and then have the system reset by the same diagnostic scanner. Many part stores will check it for free.
