You could have bought the Ford factory service tool for $2500! Please send more complete details what are the DTCs (codes) The Ford dealer has the factory engineered scanner to to locate anything..unless there paying people 10-15 and no one knows how to use the tools.. before you laugh, know this is REAL, I can't accept they don't know whats wrong, maybe they can't "fix it" but knowing whats wrong is only minutes away after connecting. I mean complete engine Data everything. The IDS-VCM is one the best scan tools I ever use. I'm so curious what they did and told you? Please, post all info. "hard starting" and "acts like its getting to much fuel"? Let us all know the NAME of the Ford Dealership. Regards
