Engine Performance problem
1995 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 110, 00 miles
Greetings. This is a 3.0 GL model. Recent blown head gasket between #1 and 2 cylinder. While off I had the heads pressure tested and magnafluxed; discovered several cracks. Acquired a set of aftermarket heads, and populated them with the old valves after cutting, new seals, etc. Put it back together and it started posting 302 code w/check engine light blinking. Replaced plugs, wires and swapped coil pack with a known good one. Code returned after 5-10 miles driving. A miss can be felt during driving. I decided to remove and clean the injectors. All injector coil resistance consistent around 19 ohms.
New seals, pintles and filters as well. Upon re installation I moved the #2 injector to the #4 cylinder position. Cleared the codes. After a short drive it posted codes of both 302 and 304. I plan to move the injector from #4 back to #2 but have yet to do so. There are no apparent vacuum leaks, and least none observable. Compression is consistent and steady between 155 and 160, with the exception of #2 which is 125lbs. Which seems odd. At this point I'm just soliciting opinions to see if I'm on the right track or overlooked something that could be obvious to you. Any suggestions would really be appreciated. Thanks.
have the same problem?
