IF IT WAS THE FUEL FILTERS WOULD'NT BE SLUGISH FROM 15-75 MPH ALSO
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
IT SEEMS TO BE USING ALOT OF FUEL ALSO
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 4 months ago.

it seems to me the injectors are leaking down or the computer keeping them on longer than it supposed to

are you looking at fixing this yourself or looking to know the most possible cause of this issue and taking it to repair shop for the work ?

Do you have any prior experience in electrical troubleshooting and testing with a test light for power & ground ?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
ITS A FRIENDS TRUCK IF ITS INJECTORS ITS NOT GOING TO GET FIXED I CAN RUN A TEST LIGHT WHAT ABOUT THE CAT CONVERTOR WOULD THAT BE GETTING PLUGED

Hello again Chris here,

  • I am following up with you to see if you got everything you needed from my answer.
  • I have not heard back from you, so I assume you were not pleased. We're you pleased with my help?
  • If you were not pleased with my help, please let me know by replying so I can help more.
  • This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. When a post times out, that means it's no longer on my active list (you reply and I may never know it.)

Thanks Chris
