check engine code
I am new to the forums, so here goes.......
I have a 1992 ford ranger 4cyl. It's got about 196000 miles on it now, and I just recently had a problem with the check engine light. On my original check, I had a problem with the EGR system and a bad coil. Well coil failure on 1,2,3 or 4.
I replaced both coils with Echlin brand coils, new plugs (bosch Platinum) and wires. This did not fix the problem. After about 8 seconds, the check engine light comes on every time I fire it up, so I got the codes checked. Here is what they said.
Code 224 = 1,2,3 or 4 circuit failure back to the same coil problem. The intake side coil. The mechanic said to run OEM equipment and check the plug gap and replace the wires. If that doesn't fix it, get the OEM coils from Ford (130.00/coil).
I guess my question is, "Has anyone else come across this problem?" and "What did it take to fix it?"
Cash is in low supply, so I'd like to get it fixed with as little money as possible. I'd rather not have to go get new plugs, wires, and coils.
Any help would be appreciated.
BTW the code keeps returning after being cleared
