Hello everyone ?. Need some help cause I'm new in this. I have a F-150, 2009, 5.4 L.
My engine light was on so I booked a service. On the way to the mechanic the light went off. They still serviced it checking in the history. After I got it back a few hoylurs later the light went on again. Any ideas what I can do cause I can't afford to pay 300$ every time till they find what's up

They are a bit expensive up front but a code scanner tool will pay for itself in the long run. Maybe a friend has one?

A scanner is a bit expensive unless you can pull your own wrenches. A basic code reader can be bought for about $40. or so. Read the code and then ask what the code means. Welcome to the site.

How do you put gas in? And keep it in on tight, high speed corners?

That's what I thought. Is it leaking or stuck open?
