Can I see the FTP Sensor without Dropping Tank?
I just finished having my mechanic replace the fuel pump in my 1998 F150. When I got it back, it had the Check Engine Light on. When I asked about it, I was told it was the Idle Air Controller. After a search of the forum, I found great instructions on how to replace this part. Thanks!!! Unfortunately, I still ended up with the Check engine lite on :-( (afer resetting it)
After paying high $ for the fuel pump fix, I decided to be a DIY kind of guy and figure it out myself. I bought a code reader and ended up getting a P0453 code. Based on the info in this forum it is likely the FTP sensor. I figured the mechanic forgot to plug it in after the fuel pump replacement. Back I went.
Well, the mechanic says it is a leak in the fuel evap system and not the sensor. He said it could take up to 5 hrs of work to fix...What should I believe????
Is it possible to see the FTP sensor without dropping the tank? Is it hard to drop the tank? It is time to take matters into my own hands!!
I haven't been able to find a Chilton Book in stock at any of the stores and need to order one. Anyone have a link to some instructions while I wait for my delivery?
Thanks to all!
