Hi this is the code my 2000 f150 is throwing. 5.4 2wd auto. So I reset the code and drove the truck and took it to have the inspection done. Funny thing is it passed with no problems. I do know that they test the cap so we can rule that out. Where is the sensor that throws this code? I need some ideas on what to do or what has fixed this problem in the past for yall.

Thanks Jeff
