90 ford escort 1.9l auto trans w/cfi. Car will start with a little gas in throttle body but won't idle or start on it's own, you can keep it running by pumping the throttle, 22 was the only codes I was getting now 22, 31, and 96. Fuel pressure seems to test fine about 14 psi when pump running.
Do you
have the same problem?

I have checked idle control motor and the throttle position sensor and they checked out ok, I will have to check egr valve and I don't believe it has a maf sensor. Would the egr cause these problems? How do you check the the other sensor that refers to code 22? (Can't remeber what it is called of hand)
