Get a free scan and post the code here or on a new thread. I worked of Ford vehicles for 10 years. Might be just a DPFE sensor (P0401/P0402) or something simple.

Most parts stores like AutoZone and Advance offer free OBDII scanning.

Just get the code from them. It should be a 4 digit code followed by a letter "P" something like "P0304" or something.

Mine was on when I bought my car. I found the problem. There was a bulb in it, so I took it out

Seriously, I have the same cat that Johnny does, except mine is flexable.
