    P144C Fault Code

    My CEl was on for a bit with P144C, never seen a code ending in a letter and multiple OBD2 scanners said no dtc definition but appears to be the same EVAP / purge valve issue. Had the dealer fix under the extended warranty last week.

    Interceptor Wheels

    Interceptor Wheels and Tires. Fit all Police and Civilian Explorers and Taurus from 2013-2019. Tires are Goodyear Assurance 235/65/18 and were just mounted, come with the TPMS sensors. These were never used on a police vehicle, I believe one wheel has minor curb rash but no bends. I do have...

    Has anyone had luck getting prior Municipality service records?

    I’m just glad that accidents, total loses and salvage gets reported on the Carfax but I’m still surprised an accident would show on Carfax since the accident doesn’t go through insurance company and usually just fixed by the local municipality.

    Engine Idle Hours

    You guys are scaring me with all these low numbers. I finally brought my 13 Interceptor to the dealer to fix the steering wheel controls and for the first time can access the engine idle hours, almost wish I didn’t. I’m at 14,149 for idle hours and engine hours are 20,344.

    Check Engine Light

    Yea the FordPass will only indicate a general message for check engine light but you need to get the actual code pulled to know what the problem is. Go to advance auto or autozone and they check it for free if you don’t own your own scanner.

    2020 ST Oil Spec?

    My 2.3 EcoBoost oil cap also states 5w-30. Quick question, not getting into anything about how often to change or what brand of oil , I just want to know is the Ford factory fill oil the Motorcraft synthetic blend or did they make it the Motorcraft full synthetic from the factory?

    Auto Hold System Fault

    Searched the forum , couldn’t find a similar thread , but I know what the Auto Hold feature is and how to use it but does anybody get an error message when they first start their truck, I wish it would store a code this way it’s not back and forth at the dealer

    Didn’t think it would be such an issue to disable them and surprised there is no forscan code for that either and it comes down to physical wiring and or switch. I’ve idled the truck for many reasons such a meal break from work, left the wife and kid in the car to run into a store or even to...
