FORD F-150 FUEL PRESSURE PROBLEM

1981 Ford F-150 • 160,000 miles

Why does my 1981 Ford F150, with the 4.9L inline 6, stall out when decelerating or coming to a stop?

Scan for codes and check fuel pressure first. If carbed it may need an overhaul due to alcoholl in todays fuel

You cant scan for a code in these old trucks

Might want to pull your spark plugs and if they need replaced I would go ahead and get a new set of ignition wires along with a new coil and cap and rotor after I did this my half ton has been running fine
