I have a 2007 Ford Ranger automatic diesel Thunder - the amber

Resolved Question:

I have a 2007 Ford Ranger automatic diesel Thunder - the amber warning light shows on the dashboard and there is a loss of power in the engine - I have had it in to the local garage several times in the last few weeks - the diagnostic machine said that the only fault showing was the mass air flow sensor - this was replaced on Monday - to begin with the truck seemed to be fine - much more power - after approx. 150 miles the ***** *****ght has come on again and once again the engine has lost power - can you help please ? Thanks

Hi there good morning to you
Ok this fault is most commonly caused by the Mass Air Flow values being out of spec
On every service of the earlier ranger the MAF learned values must be reset
This is part of the service check sheet
This is done to keep the MAF values from straying out of the set parameters and causing issues
This would be the first thing I would advise before going any further
Also incorrectly air filters /air leaks at air filter housing or blocked air filters can also cause this issue
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know

Kind regards ***** ***** and have a nice day
Brian
