Customer Question

Hi Steve. 2005 f150 5.4 with 165 on it. Rough idle check engine light went on and then off when it went on it seemed like there was a Lose oil pressure. You could heal it here Beasley and then it stopped I am not sure what the problem is I am thinking it may beVCT but I'm not sure it doesn't want to want to stall the RPM stay a little bit below 1000 but sometimes droppes lower. Where do you think I should start ? Plugs are all new also it seems sometimes there is a smell of fuel but it doesn't appear to be a fuel issue

You should start with having the codes checked to see what the computer saw. I suspect its going to a be a code for the cam timing components. If so I would try an oil flush chemical to remove any sludge buildup and debris since oil pressure is used and effects all the timing components. You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.Thanks Chris
