Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Ford F150 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 52000 miles
I have a 2004 F150 with 52000 miles and just recently the engine light came on, I took it to a shop and had them hook it up to a computer and it said it was my oxygen sensors. I decided to take it to the shop, before I could get it there the light came off. I decided to not ake it to the shop but a month or so later it came back on. I made a appointment with Ford which I had to wait a month for, before the time of the appointment it came back off again. Finally the day came I went to my appointment and of course waited 5 hours just for them to tell me that it was my Thermostat stuck open. I told them I had it looked prior to my appointment and the computer said it was my O2 sensors. I'm not completely dumb when it comes to working on vehicles but I've never heard of a Thermostat stuck open could cause a vehicle to run rich which would make the computer put out a code for the o2 sensors. Just the other day after they had replaced the Thermostat the light came back on again for the same o2 sensors?&Gt? Is it possible for a vehicle to run rich because of a Thermostat stuck open?
