Here is how to solve the check engine lite problem
on all ford models.
1. Go buy a 5 gallon gas can and fill it up with
2. Go to your local ford dealer, park the car or
truck in the parking lot by the new models.
3. Dump the gas can all over your car.
4. Step away about 10 ft with the gas can. Get a
rag wet a little bit with the rest of the gas in
the can........lite the rag and toss it on your
car and run.
5. End of problem. :-)
The time it would take to dump five gallons of gas is ample enough for
the fumes to spread well beyond a ten foot radius. The ignition of the
gasonline and fumes would be sufficient enough not only to ignite the
fumes beneath you, assuming you are silly enough to be within 10 feet,
but also remove any oxygen within your immediate area, at least briefly.

10 ft would be ok on a hot summer day, the fumes
would boil off the hot car and pavement and rise.
But in February, the fumes would go on the ground
and possibly cause harm to the rag lighter. OK,
try 30 ft......but you have to ball the rag up so
it can be thrown that far with out the resistance
of the air stopping it from reaching the intended
distance. I did say run away.
