A burnt injector harness and replaced that but still the truck runs…

Customer Question
I'm having run issues with...
I'm having run issues with my 96 7.3. I had a burnt injector harness and replaced that but still the truck runs, then stumbles and throws a misfire code, sometimes if I give a little gas it will clear up and then comes back again.
My fuel pressure bounces between 58 and 68 pounds........is it supposed to be a steady pressure or is it typical to bounce when checking it????

Hi, for that truck normal fuel pressure is 30 to70 PSI

You are having injector problem I think. Hook up a scanner and run cylinder contribution test and you will know which one is the culprit.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
