Don't think it would be the fuel rail, as that is only a pipe to hold the gas and the injectors. So if you have low pressure, it is probably either the fuel pump or the fuel pressure regulator. Wouldn't cost much if anything to have the fuel pressure checked. I believe Autozone or O'reilly's will rent those fuel pressure gauges, with just a refundable deposit.
The pump is doing something since the engine is still running. If your pressure is too low (below the specs for your truck), a pressure regulator is cheaper than a pump, so you may have to try both, first the regulator.
But first, pull the vacuum line to the regulator off and run the engine for a minute. Watch the regulator: if gas starts coming out the vacuum fitting on the regulator, then it is definitely shot and you need a new pressure regulator.
If the regulator is not leaking, check the fuel pressure. If low probably the pump, but maybe the pressure regulator. Ask the guys at autozone (or where you get the gauge to check pressure) how to test the regulator as you are checking the pressure.

If you hear air in the engine, there must be a leak somewhere.
Check all the vaccum hoses for bad ones or dissconnected ones. All it takes is a pin hole in these darn emission systems to screw up the whole system.
It could also be a leaking intake manifold gasket.

remember the switch only gets power for 1 second when u turn the key on, the common problem is the ignition starter switch comes apart, it is located at top of the steering column near the bottom, drop the column down (2 nuts) and inspect the switch for separation.

SOURCE: TOO LEAN CODES

yes very very common code for these motors i get them all the time. now the first thing i do is listen to the pcv valve for noise if it is rattling this is the problem and is the most common of all. another thing is the intakes leak from cracks in them but the only way to find it is with a smoke machine. now the one other thing i have seen before is debre like a leaf in the mass air flow sensor but you have replaced it so most likely no that.

do your self a favor and change the pcv valve it only cost under 5 dollars. if this is not it you will need to find the leak in and around the intake or a vacuum hose.

because you have two lean banks this mean if it is a leak then it has to be in common with both banks and that is the vacuum line system intake etc...

let mew know if you have any more question. good luck man

When I was driving with my heater on it made a quite loud thump in my 2007 ford explorer sport trac and the check engine light came on


Something got jammed inside the blower motor, causing the sensor to get a "Check Engine" light. Have a mechanic look at it. Probably a holder plastic. Otherwise, an OBD Scanner tool can reset the light.

Do the brake lights work? if not there is a more serious problem affecting all lights at once.
If they do, The switch unit may be damaged, have a look..
Then check for burnt wiring or damaged wiring near the keyswitch and in the engine bay. Clean all wiring connectors by seperating them and spraying wd 40 on them.
