    should be all 3 digit codes there, so not sure what a 26 would be.
    the other two I think are just not pushing stuff during the self test, not actual problems.

    Yes. EEC-II (MCU) forward had a self-test. I don't think EEC-1 did but that controlled almost nothing anyway. The older it is, the more limited the code output but by 84 it was getting halfway useful.

    10 is a spacer code between current and stored codes if thats an engine-off scan.
    111 is all-clear, no codes.

    guessing it did 111, 10, then the others? If so key on, engine off is good, space, then you have 3 history codes
    172 is right side lean
    176 is left side lean
    542 is fuel pump circuit fail.


    if those are history, I'd clear them and see if it comes back. If this previously had a fuel pump fuse or fuel pump relay failure it could explain all 3 of those codes. Fuel pump circuit monitors voltage being sent to the pump, not so much that the pump is working. Basically if it loses power you get the fault code. Losing power while driving will make everything go lean and the engine will die.

    I did a running test and got 136, 632, 536, i did start it without those ro hoses on the intake and it stalled, maybe that through the lean code? Also it said cyl 8

    Also the 8 was in code format for example the 136 had a r above it, the 8 had cyl above it

    if the intake hose wasn't connected you'll get strange mass air or fuel trim codes. Run it again with all the stuff connected proper like.

    The last test was with eveything hooked back up and the battery had been disconnected the day before, i believe all i have is the 136 now, which im going to but my o2 sensor in first then look for other stuff, also should the pcv valve fit tight, mine seems to fit kind of loose and it look the same as the one i took out, both motorcraft

    Welp, i took a 2 hour round trip in her, made it back with a check air susp light, do you check those codes the same as engine ones? Also i had 3 people in the back, if that has anything to do with it, car sits lower on passenger side rear edit the hole passenger side is sitting lower
