Scotty, My name is David. I recently bought a 2000 model fordcrown victoria police car. I have ran the codes afew time and keep getting the same codes. I reset and bingo again the same codes that sat bank 1 rich and bank 2 rich. I notice that the fuel injector connectors are missing the clips that hold the connector down tightly. I am wondering if this is causing the codes, but my real concern is at time i can hit a bump hard and the car will shut off, or i can go around a corner to fast and the car will shut off as well. it always starts right back up but I am stumped. The gas gauge has a mind of its own as well, sometimes it goes up then down. it just doesnt seem to work. When i first bought the car i had to mess with the tail pipe and for some reason that makes the gauge go up and down as well. I though i got a good deal, but as a student i am not working and doing most of the repairs myself. I am looking for some general ideas and things to check. If you could offer some advice i would be grateful

loose connections would make it run lean, not rich. odds are fuel injectors are leaking, maf sensor is bad, or fuel pressure regulator is bad. test those first
