'catalyst system below thresh hold'

Not tenspeed, but one of his co-horts here, p0234 is 'the car is in limp mode'. So catalyst and limp mode...sounds like your converter is kaput, already.


You are saying you do not have a turbocharger or supercharger and you're getting codes (P0240 and P0234) which are both forced induction problems. Here's the site I go to - http://engine- codes.com/p0240_ford.html -- http://engine-codes.com/p0234_ford.html


Maybe my source is screwed up...

yeah, what does 'solen' mean? a mis-spelling of 'stolen'..geez, hot market for turbos these days!

guess the Ford service tech guy is in the know, but he didn't fix ya~


That 'solen' is solenoid that was cut off... - I transposed a couple numbers on that last one. http://engine-codes.com/p0243_ford.html - Turbo/Super Charger Wastegate Solenoid 'A' --
