There is no check engin light , and when it surges it just idles up and when going down the road if running at 70 miles an hr it surges and will kick it up to 74 miles an hr. and when slowing down to stop it will idle up to about 1200 rpms and after about 5 mins it will finaly idle down to normal and sometime it run ruff and almost die. It starts easley runs good now power loss and when need to get up and go there is no problem when kick it in the ass.

Great information...

By any chance does it seem like the transmission is shifting into different gears when the problem happens? Have you tried shifting into 3 and seeing if the problem goes away? This is a great check, does not seem like an engine concern.

What was the reason for an egr replacement or injector replacements? Was it for the same complaint you have now? Was a check engine light on at one time?

The reason for the two injectors truck went to smoking and running bad and at that time the check engine light was on and i pulled the egr value out and cleaned it run the truck no change so i took off the wires and still no change so i put a new egr value and still no change truck still surging and idling up. As for as trans acting up can not tell any different in it. I have not tried putting it in third to see if any difference
Ford Mechanic: NicksSticks, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago

With the light on can you remember the codes?

and if possible, attempt to drive the truck with it in third (wont hurt a thing) and see if the problem is still there.

Also, is it still smoking, and if so, what color smoke?

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.
