I've been trying to diagnose a slight miss in my parents' 02 Expedition, 4.6L. The repair manual I have says fuel pressure should be 50 psi (key on engine off and running). Does anybody have different specs? If so, what are they and what is your source? Thanks.

Thanks for the screenshot. I tend to trust Mitchell over Chiltons or Haines, anyway. I should mention that I'm getting roughly 35 psi KOEO and 30 KOER. Looks like I may have to look elsewhere for the source of the miss.

Could be one of the following:

1. Defective spark plugs
2. Inadequate spark/coil, defective spark plug wire.
3. Lack of compression
4. False air leakage.
5. Faulty fuel injectors.
6. Insufficient fuel pressure.
7. Contaminated fuel.
8. EGR valve that is leaking.
9. Oxygen sensors.
10. Throttle position sensor.
11. Manifold absolute pressure sensor
12. Mass Airflow Sensor
13. Idle air control valve
