Engine Performance problem
2000 Ford F150 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 197, 00 miles
For the last couple years I've been experienceing an intermittent problem associated with my engine misfiring. The problem reminds me of water in the gas; it is inconsistent; more common when engine is running at lower RPM's (1500 -2000) and just coming under load; Check engine light is on; the engine has always had a ping when under load; if run through a deep puddle (splash), the engine will sometimes sputter and chug for a period of minutes.
When the problem first started, I got some relief from replacing the wiring harness and plugs. Changing the plugs every 6 months has minimized the problem, but not a resolution and the problem now is becoming more frequent. I've also replaced the gas pump with no favorable impact.
Local mechanics suggest it might be the coil, EGR valve, injectors. Etc. Can you offer any insight?
have the same problem?
