Customer Question

2004 6 liter excursion runs but seems wee during acceleration and has little power going up hills
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?
Customer: Yes, new and pulled the tank and replace the suction assembly
JA: What is the model/year of your Ford?
Customer: 2004 limited
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Found some debris in the tank. Cleaned it out and pulled the lift pump and cleaned it out as well. Same symptoms
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Eve valve has a little carbon but not bad at all. Is there a possibility the solenoid on the eye is bad?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Do you know if the vehicle is an early or late build
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No. The other day we had a scanner and it coding improper egr flow
Expert:  James replied 10 months ago.
If the egr is stuck open even the slightest it can cause a loss of power but not run rough.

Ok so it will be an early build. Can you remove the EGR and inspect?
