1999 Ford F-550 Repair Question
Why does my engine run very rich on cold idle
It is dual fuel, petrol or LPG, and exactly the same happens on both fuels (separate injection systems).
I have replaced plugs, COPs, boots, wires, injector o-rings, all EGR parts, O2 sensors (it only has upstream and no cat.), PCV and hose, fuel filter, air filter.
There are no codes, I have cleaned the MAF, a vacuum test is exactly as it should be, spraying around head gaskets has no effect, performance seems very good, live scanner readings are all sensible, although one O2 sensor is much slower than the other.
I still suspect MAF or O2.
Do you think I should remove plugs again to check them, and to do compression tests?
Should I replace MAF even though readings seem sensible on scanner?
Probable causes of an engine running rich:
1.Excessive fuel pressure can be cause by restricted fuel return line
2.Defective Oxygen Sensors.
3.Leaking injectors and fuel pressure regulator.
4.Coolant temperature sensor out of calibration.
5.Restricted air intake system.
