FORD F150 Just replaced my fuel pump - no luck

So Ive had a loss of power and a low fuel pressure (22psi) for a month now and I cant seem to pinpoint the problem. Ive replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump but the pressure hasnt changed. Any ideas of what the problem could be PS also I removed the vacuum line from the fuel pressure regulator and the pressure goes up by about 10 psi and when I pinch the return line shut the pressure shoots up to about 80. dont know if thats normal or not

I doubt thats it but feel to see if its hot. If the relay is hot - Its bad. You getting the same pressure reading you did with the old pump That sounds like the regulator or sticky injector. Not to common of a problem you have a Haynes or Chiltons book Something with the spec pressure numbers Ill post the fuel sheet and give yuh a fault finder link to check out - Fault Finder Link - httpwww.fordscorpio.co.ukfaultfinds.htm

FORD F150 fuel superheater

has anyone ever seen this or done one themselves or even heard about this before Ive only read an article about it but it seems to make sense. heat the fuel so when it is injected into the cylinder it atomizes quicker for a better air to fuel burn - just throwing this out there - now im gonna sit back and watch

Not necessarily... the CAI that so many of us have is to give more molecuels of O2 (cold dense more O2). More O2 is picked up by the PCM which in turn adds more fuel to maintain that magic ratio for air to fuel. More fuel more power I beleive Troyer has mentioned several times that he gets max power from his engines when they are set to 205 degrees or somewhere close to there. I have noticed this

This engine performance maximizer made by Tornado installs inside air intake hose between air intake and air filter box on electronically fuel injected vehicles.

FORD USA F150 1993 5.0 auto-fuel vapor canister leaks

My 1993 F150 5.0 EFI Auto. has a fuel vapor canister leak have been smelling gas when I run the air con. and I just noticed today that it was dripping onto the driveway. What can cause this problem

The dripping on the drive is normal that is what it is suppose to do. You do not have an air intake under the hood where the fuel vapor canister is. The air intake for the AC system if on max is the passenger compartment and if on normal is in front of the windshield. What you smell is water that has dryer on the evaporator from not switching your AC system to vent about 5 minutes before you shut the

The torque converter on the car cracked and the car had to go to the shop. So I used the truck to go to work and back. Coming home the CEL popped up again.

FORD F150 Just got Diablo Predator and Spectre Intake.. a few questions

Hey guys kinda new to the tuning scene here just wanted to have all my ducks in a row before i start this little project. Just picked up a diablo predator and spectre intake they havnt been delivered yet but should be here within a few days. My question is i heard there are canned tunes for specific intakes.. k&n airraid etc. Well since my intake isnt one of those which tune should i install on it

only reason for the &8220custom&8221 program to support the CAI is because the design is poor resulting in false readings from the air intake sensors etc&8230.period If you look at the dyno charts from many of these supposed HPTQ increases they are typically around 5%-7% at peak rpm ranges&8230&8230.guess what 5% is a standard deviation even amongst mfg dynos and if you go to this link httpwww.fordracingparts.comdownl...ceTechTips.pdf

FORD F150 So what about propane

Someone help me out please or point me to some threads where this has already been discussed. Gas going up fast... I paid 3.40 for real gas yesterday. I personally think itll be 5 a gallon this summer... we all know why and who. Seems to me that propane will be less effected by events in the ME and by political obstruction to domestic oil production... especially in the short-term if you know what

loss in fuel economy but they no longer offer the system on F-150s (could it be to avoid EPA fuel economy testing). Propane conversions typically get better fuel economy than what would be expected from the fuels lower BTU content per gallon. Theres no way to know the actual loss unless you bought identical propane and gasoline vehicles and did a side-by-side comparison yourself. As for the OEM ford

FORD F150 Misfire code P0303

Good Morning I have a 2001 4.6L F150 Supercrew. Last night it start to buck and hesitate under normal load. I got it home and detected a burning smell under the hood. Test drove it some more and the engine light came on. Got the code read and it is P0303 which I was told was cylinder 3 misfire. Question 1. What cylinder is 3. Is it on the left bank (drivers side). I cant find any identifers. Question

onto the SAME cylinder they came from. Grease them up well to focus pulse to plugs correctly - that also saves your boots from all those nasty carbon trails that break down the silicone. Start all the new plugs with a scrap piece of 38 air hose IF you dont want to take any chances screwing up the head threads - thats to easy to do unfortunately. Plug torque is 28 lbs.

Hello all from a newbie. I have still been experiencing some misfire problems since my engine carwash incident of 2 weeks ago o. I bought my 2001 f150 4x4 Scab w145K miles a month ago from a very nice honest private party wnear mint condition.

Mine were no problem with 6 of 8 original plugs at 120000 miles in a 2001 screw. I would start right off by pulling the intake throttle body and drivers side fuel rail. Watch o-rings on the injectors and rail as well as the gaskets on the power connectors for the COPs and injectors.

FORD F150 P0401 Troubles (sorry about repetition guys)

I know a bunch of this stuff gets hashed over and over guys but I did read through a number of post and still would like to know what the most common solution is to this code. I checked the voltage to the EGR and the DPFE and the voltage is within spec. The resistance on the EGR is within spec. I did just run seafoam through the truck about a week ago and replaced a bad O2 sensor. No new codes until

The PCM does not allow the EVR solenoid to supply vacuum to the EGR valve until coolant temp is somewhere over 100F. That does not prevent testing the DPFE only with the engine off. Pull the two differential pressure tubes froim the DPFE and check tubes for blockages. If clear check the DPFE ports for corrosion and moisture. Hook vacuum to ref port (small port on front) using a hose and sucking on

FORD F150 air filters gas mileage

For some reason people seem to think that if they put a high flow air filter in their truck it will get better gas mileage. Well I dont believe it and Im going to explain why. To start lets go over the procedure that your engine uses to determine how to use its air. Im going to use my 97 5.4 for example. At cruise the engine uses readings obtained from the barometric pressure sensor the intake air

The air will not flow through there

FORD F150 Round 2 87 octane superchip....

I checked with superchip told them I wanted a chip that would be tuned for 87 octane they told me it doesnt exist. Since Ive used company gas for the last 5 12 years Im not going to go out and start buying premium fuel now. I talked to Mike T previously which stated the chip can be done as a custom application I assume in a part 1100 application. The previous topic link. 87 octane chip I do want firmer

Hi hoseclamp 1.) You should have called us not Superchips. That isnt something Superchips is going to do for you directly. Nor will they even talk to you about it. Superchips isnt the least bit interested in providing chips or tuners for use on anything less than premium gasoline as you dont gain much power that way. The way to get a Superchip program for use on 87 octane is by calling US here at Performance

FORD F150 EGR Vacuum 3 in on acceleration

Hello. My 5.4l has a hesitation when I apply just a light accelerator. I just replaced the EGR valve and have done a lot of testing. The vacuum at the EGR valve hose while driving is 3 in at slight acceleration and 5 in at normal acceleration. I assume the 3 in is causing the EGR to open a little and cause the stall.

The vehichle speed. 2. The throttle opening angle of the tps. 3. How long the TPS is at the opening angle. There may be other parameters in play as well. ..Above about 45 mph the PCM looks at the length of time the TPS

better have a decent dynamic CR. To give you an idea to what extent this occurs we find that with our example a 300-degree race cam used with a static CR of 121 has a dynamic CR of only about 8.31. This snippet of info should bring home the importance of having sufficient CR for a big cam. If it doesnt then maybe the dyno test results in Fig. 4 will. These are some tests I did with the 2-liter ford
