Just letting you know, I'm not selling anything on ebay. I shouldn't tell you, I'm still buying modular tools and stuff, don't bid against me, I won't bid against you.

But there are some good deals to be found!

Hey Happy  Last Year to every one!

I  just got my first chance to use a NGS tester I bought a year or so ago. My son in (or  out) law has had a check engine light on his 02 Explorer since about a week after he bought it, around 4 years ago. Couldn't get it smoged in CA, spent big $ trying to fix it, Got a waiver for the $'s spent. Wound up later blowing a plug.... and winding up rebuilding the wh*** thing. Still got the Check Engine light. That was more than a year ago, I've been telling him to get over on a day off.and fix it.

Today, he finally came over. We broke out the books, and tester, followed the procedure, and, within 1/2 hour, found the problem, replaced the sensor for $29, and his two persistent codes, disappeared.

The Codes were P1401 and P0172. both point to EGR problems, the 1401 points to a sensor problem. The 172 code is a #2 Bank running lean. This means the "Fuel Trim" values are past Maximum normal, ie. the injectors are squirting all they can, and it's still lean. This means bad fuel economy, and lack of power, overheating of combustion chamber (read melting pistons and valves).

Both of these problems point to EGR Differential Pressure Sensor. If the Sensor ain't working, nothing else will work correctly.

We replaced the sensor, drove around while monitoring all the different PID's  that cause those codes to be tossed. All right in the middle of the range.

What I'm sayin here is this. If you wanna play with these, get the tools, get the books, otherwise, you're p***** up a rope. They are (really in the long run, if you're serious) cheap on Ebay.  A full set of factory doc's for your motor/car/wiring harness can be had for under 150. I paid 700 for my tester. I think software/hardware combo's to do more are available for laptops for less at this point.

The time saved KNOWING what's  wrong, instead of GUESSING what's wrong, is quickly repaid.

Anybody wondering about the Intech, it's the DOHC 32v version.
Comment by Bruce T. Lytle on October 4, 2011 at 11:53am
Hey guys, I've got an Intech version from a `98 Lincoln. The intake runners are really low, like barely comes above the valve cover level. I know these things came in some SUV in the early 2000's, Rangers I think. Anybody seen one, or have pictures? I'm thinking the manifold would be higher. The Lincolns were short so's to fit under the hood, The "Ranger" ones should be taller (better low and mid-range torque I'd think). Thinking I'd like to swap if that's the case. TIA for any info.
