Agreed. If you don't have a code reader you can take it to pretty much any parts store. They can read the code, tell you what it means, and clear it for you.

Once you get the code read, if it reads this http://www.fordrangerforum.com/4-0-s...look-here.html

This shows what you need to do. It's a common problem. I had the same thing and one mechanic told me I needed a new intake gasket and turned out that hose was just cracked
