The 1st code was P00900, ("Fuel Rail Pressure Switch). It needed to be replaced, the part is about $125.00 from the dealer. The thing is you have to remove the intake manifold to access it. Not a big deal, I am mechanically inclined and an average gear head, it took me 2 hours. You will need a Torx T-27 bit, I bought one for a 1/4" drive socket driver from Lowes. I used an 8 inch extension and was able to remove all 8 intake manifold bolts with it. The tools needed were flat screwdriver, T27 torx bit, extension and ratchet, needle nose pliers. Because your are removing the intake go ahead and buy some new gaskets (O ring style) from the dealer while your there. The intake is plastic and lifts off easily, thankfully, the eight intake manifolds bolts stay in place on the manifold while removing and installing so you don't have to thread them through the manifold and into the engine.

Follow the steps below and save yourself some money. BTW, make sure your remove the pressure from the fuel line before dis-assembly.

Yep, hardest part is getting to the rear two intake manifold bolts. But it's easily doable in an afternoon. That sensor went out on mine around 100K.

I had pictures , diagrams and instructions posted on this thread, but because of a couple forumite smartazzes didn't like to hear an differing opinion on Ford and some it's products, I chose to no longer share them.

Thank the resident forum idiots for that.

It ain't hard to change sensor, google around. Some of the peeps here just pay Ford to fix their stuff.

LOL
