They could have found a less pain in the but place for that filter.

What was the fix for P0316 and P0301

So what ended up being the fix for this problem guys?

This is so embarrassing....

It turned out to be the spark plug wires.

Apparently, the weak wires tricked the system into thinking the car was running out of gas, so it leaned out the right bank in an attempt to get more fuel to the left bank.

This caused a misfire code on the #2 cylinder (right bank).

The one thing I didn't change!

Dumb on my part.

Sorry for the bump from a new guy. Having the same issue as the OP of this thread. Hesitation, choppy idle, etc. replaced the plug and wires, double checked the plug gaps, switched the plug and wire on #2 to #6 and still get the P0302 code, flashing SES light. From this thread I am leaning towards the camshaft position synchro, but wanted to be sure. Btw, this car is a Base V6, 3.8l, automatic with over 150,000 miles on it. Trying to get it running right without dumping money into parts left and right if I can help it because we are trying to sell it.

Appreciate the help in advance fellas.

I would definitely do the camshaft position synchro

That's what I'm thinking. Question about them, though. I'm not a fan of buyin cheap crap (especially for Ford cars) so where would you recommend ordering from? The local oreilly and autozone don't have them in stock (the BWD ones) so I figured I should go ahead and order the motorcraft one from RockAuto. I'm concerned that it might not come with the cap though so I was wondering if someone could provide a part number that includes whatever is necessary for installation.

I ordered mine from rock auto and it came with the tool, if not I still have mine. You could have it lol I don't need it. But I'm 99.9% sure it'll come with it.

No problem bro. You will need to replace the egr gaskets (2) BC you will have to take it off for installation. You may be able to reuse them but I highly recommend replacing them. They are like $2 at your local auto parts store

Ok so I got the old one off and have the motor at TDC and can't get the new one to slide in as easily as the old one came out. It's getting stuck with the gear right at the top of the hole. Don't really want to beat it in with a hammer so are there any other suggestions for getting it in there?
