Customer Question

2002 f-150 (162,700 mi, suddenly started skipping. Initially showed #6 misfire. COPs are only 4 mos old. Changed # 6 COP anyway, then the injector. Problem still exists. Changed fuel filter, still have problem. Fuel pressure shows 32 psi at idle in Park and in gear. Running out of ideas.
JA: Is the fuel filter an external one, or is it inside the tank?
Customer: Inline filter.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Initially showed #6 misfire. COPs are only 4 mos old. Changed # 6 COP anyway, then the injector. Problem still exists. Checked fuel pressure. Got about 32 psi. Would like to try and fix myself.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Just put in a 4.6 W crate motor in Mar. New COPs. Did not modify in anyway. No codes.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

The next steps are to replace the plug, use a noid light to confirm a good signal from the PCM to the coil and injector and do a compression test on cylinders 567 to compare them. Can you do those steps for me?
