Hey guys, so just got my truck up and running. It's a 2000 with the 2.5 lima. The problem i'm having is i cannot get one diagnostic monitor to ready up for emissions testing. Every other monitor is ready except the EGR. I've tried everything to get it to ready up. I did the ford recommended drive cycle of accelerating from a dead stop to 45mph at 1/2 to 3/4 throttle 3 times. After doing this about 10 times i don't know what to do. I've also tried driving it on the freeway at 60mph for 10min and then tried accelerating to 50mph or so on some back roads and just letting it decel in gear to about 30mph. Does anyone have any tricks to get this thing to ready up? i cant get this truck registered until i pass smog.. combined i've put over 50 miles on this since the battery was last unhooked.
