Engine Performance problem
1995 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 150k miles
I have a 95 Lightning that seems to just die when it wants to. However, I can keep it alive by keeping the rpms up by left foot brake / right foot on the accelerator at stop signs. I'll approach a stop sign, let off the gas and sometimes it will quit. This has happened to me on the freeway as well at slow speeds. Starts up by pushing the gas all the way to the floor and cranking ignition. "Grey" color cloud at that time comes from tailpipe, and that is the only time.
Checked for water in gas---ok. Replaced fuel filter---no change. Ran diagnostic, gave me an error code about temperature sensor, replaced it, no change. Pressurized cooling system (suspected head gasket fouling sensor) and it remained solid after 4 tests, 30 minutes each test. No signs of oil in water, and vice versa. Thinking fuel pressure regulator. What do you think?
have the same problem?
