Engine Performance problem
1989 Ford F150 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 75,000 miles
I bought this truck new. Great vehicle. 75,000 orig miles. A new front gas tank was installed 6 months ago. Immediately there were problems. The mechanic insisted on replacing the computer module. Nevertheless when it warms up, it sputters, makes air noises, knocks and dies. After it cools down it will run again. It recently died in a major intersection and was towed to a Ford dealer. I don't think they know what they are doing. $900 for a new battery, starter, spark plugs, wires, roter and distributor cap and it had nothing to do with the problem. Now they are trying to tell me it needs 2 new fuel pumps at $1275. I think there is dirt in the gas tank. They disagree. Also, an elctronic problem is possible. The only thing not replaced is the coil. I m not a mechanic but I was mistaken when I assumed the dealer would best be equipped to get to the problem. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
have the same problem?
