Discussion about this Video:
I feel like I should have made this video a while ago but the opportunity
never came up. Since I had this RL in my shop that had a check engine
light AND an ABS light I thought it was a perfect opportunity to put this
video together. I get asked all the time about my 'special tool' and it's
really nothing more than a Honda 2 pin connector with the input wires
soldered together. These connectors might be harder to find than you think
but if you run across a junk honda and one of these is on the harness grab
it. Even if you don't have the tool a paper clip or piece of wire will do
the exact same thing so don't sweat it if you don't have the tool because
shorting the connector is all you need to do.
I hope you find this video helpful.

How to Diagnose OBD II Fault Codes P0171 and P0174 Leaking Intake and EGR Valve (06 Ford Freestyle)
We had a 2006 Ford Freestyle come in with fault codes P0171 and P0174. Both
are lean codes meaning the O2 sensors were reading a lean condition. After
watching the fuel trim while using brake clean around the intake area we
determined the vehicle should have a smoke test. During the test we found
the EGR valve to have a vacuum leak. Once that was repaired it was also
determined there still was a leak and the intake gaskets were at fault as
well. This video gives you an insight to advanced diagnostics with
equipment that the normal weekend warrior wouldnt have access to.
