Re: Ranger engine code question
Code P0179 can be caused by:
These sensors are usually on a flex fuel vehicle to help the computer determine which fuel in being used. I would start off trouble shooting by adding "Heet" fuel system cleaner, or a similar product to the fuel. This will clean out the contaminates from the fuel, i.e. water, etc. Then replace the fuel filter. Reset the CEL and see if it fixed the problem.
If not move to the Sensor. First clean the connector, if still no luck replace the sensor.
