Hi all. Thanks everyone and Missourileo for getting this going for me. Tom, I am the one Missourileo is talking about. I have downloaded teamviewer and livelink 6.5 genII as instructed. I am SO new to this. Here is the latest. We took the ORP off and installed the original in hopes of passing emissions testing. I am now pulling an 02 sensor and occasional misfire code. I was instructed to drive it 30 minutes on cruise at highway speeds, pull over for one minute and let it idle then drive back. I was told it would reset. I appologize in advance for sounding like a newby but the shoe fits.

So I swapped out the orp, disconnected and removed the aem wide band sensor and installed the stock cat, 02 sensor and replaced the front sensor. Still got a p0133 and evaporate canister code....... This is frustrating!!!

Hey Jeff and Fred. Sorry about not getting on here earlier. As I explained about the o2 sensor, for some reason I never had any luck with bosch and always got a slow response code, I went through several of them before switching to a different brand. I don't remember what brand I put in that immediately cured this.
Tom, If I remember correctly the tune was done by Andy at dynotuneusa in watertown sd for me originally and I did a little fuel trim tweeking at wot. You also helped with a little fuel and the fuel pump at ff09 if that helps any. I may have turned a couple things off in the tune too or you did, i just can't remember. thinking the vct.
the valve cover has a small filter and the pcv is road drafted with a filter if that helps any. none of it goes into the intake.

As far as the cold start, it never had the problem before. But it does sound like the throttle body butterfly may need to be adjusted open a tad. But not being there it's really hard to tell.

I swapped out the Bosch for an NTK sensor last night. Need to drive it a bit. To m, would you be available Thursday around 4-4:30 central? I can have everything setup for you to look at it.

I will try to be , depends what I am doing at the time , we can do this up to about 7-7:30 evenings if that helps with another time opening for you

You shouldnt need to drive the car any to tell if the sensor is working , I would take the batt loose tonight for about 5 min then replace cable , when you start it in the AM you should know right away if it was the o2 being the issue

I only use the Bosch and cant say I have ever had an issue from them on the Focus

Tom
