Welcome to Justanswer

snapontech :

What year

Customer:

2005 engine installed in January into my 2004 Truck.

Customer:

Ran great from January until May. Then behaved as if I had bad Fuel clogging the system (spitting and dying).

snapontech :

The connectors will only go in one way

Customer:

Okay. Thanks.

snapontech :

No problem. If this was helpful please press ACCEPT. Thanks in advance Danny

Customer:

I have replaced two fuel injectors, fuel pump, fuel filters, Cam position sensor and crank sensor.

Customer:

And batteries.

snapontech :

What is the reason for the new PCM

Customer:

Truck is still showing this poor performance. It died 6 times on my 20 mile commute this morning.

Customer:

No I don't have a new PCM.

Customer:

A diesel mechanic I know said to see if I have loose PCM connectors.

Customer:

I DID all the work the local Ford Dealer service department recommended.

Customer:

I don't have much confidence in them now.

Customer:

After paying out $2,500 to get it to run properly.

Customer:

And it doesn't.

Customer:

And when 'running" it spits and spurts and tries to die.

snapontech :

Most of the time with these running like this its one of a few things. Bad injectors bad fuel injector control module or restriction in the fuel system needing a filter

Customer:

So I've done ALL that execpt a FICM.

snapontech :

Based on what your experiencing I would first inspect the PCM connectors then you will want to make sure all of the injectors are working like they should its very possible the FICM is bad

snapontech :

You can get one from www.car-parts.com very reasonably

Customer:

And the dealer didn;t mention the FICM.

Customer:

Really?

Customer:

Nice tip.

Customer:

Thanks!
