Hi,

I recently bought used Ford Taurus and after few days it started showing service engine sign.I got it diagnosed and it said p1506 and P0401. I took it to mechanic he replace some hose, some valve and reset the light. Now after 3 days light has again come on and code is P1506. I again took it to mechanic but that guy says I could not locate the error as it was not overspeeding and Idle speed and RPM was below 1000. Please help me, what I should I do. Light is on and inspection is due in one month, are these guys fooling me they have already charged 300$ from me

Thanks
Ash

Thank you for reply Sir,
Problem is I do not know anything about engine, I can take it too mechanic, last time he said he has fixed all the leaks, cleaned the valve but light is still on. Now I cannot trust any mechanic anymore-please suggest someone who can diagnose it perfectly and remove the problem.

I live in Frisco-Dallas-Texas

thanks
