Found sticker saying " reprogramed pcm new #.....

is FLTFAYE 2/13/98.

So, does anyone know why it was done? It says Ford so i'm guessing the dealer did it.

It was done on the 95 models because of hard start, hesitation, and stalling issues. They updated the PCM to the 96 calibration for more PIDs and more sesitive to throw codes due to the issues with the CPS

Thanks for the info! So does that mean when scanning with a reader I use 1996 Ford?

One other question if you don't mind........the crankcase vent on the drivers valve cover is smoking a little and is sweating oil. Any way of that getting clogged? I repair motorcycles and a blocked CCV is NOT good.

Yep it was a 1995 thing. Mine has the sticker also.

As far as the CC vent... there are two orings under that little cover. take it off and seal it up with gasket maker or get the new orings.

And to ps.org

Pcm's get updated for all kinds of reasons. Sometimes it's a trans issue, sometimes it's a motor issue. Just about every vehicle out there has had an updated calibration or has a calibration update available.
