Ok I will have the fuel pressure checked cold and hot and see what it has and get back to you.
The problem occurs all the time it is sluggish its just better in the morning then after I drive it for a few miles.
cold koeo 54 koer 56
Hot is the same drove down the road while it was acting sluggish and the pressure stayed between 54-57 depending on how hard i got on in to pull a hill. and the converters where replaced about 20,000 miles ago due to the rotten egg smell coming from the exhaust.
No fault codes at all.
It has been checked and it was fine
Ok if you think someone else might have a answer since I have been trying to get this figured out for months now even ford dealer says they can't figure it out.
about 500 miles ago when this problem started the plugs boots and mass air flow where changed and it made no difference.
so you are saying the plugs need to be changed again even though they only have 500 miles on them
The only other thing was the converters where replaced about 20,000 mile ago due to rotten egg smell and we put 93 octane gas in it and a lucas gas treatment because originally it started this right after we had fueled at a station in Florida before we drove back to Alabama.And just so you know the plugs and boots and mass air flow where all motorcraft parts we did not use aftermarket stuff. The mass air flow was changed because the dealership said it had low readings.
last night we temp removed the cats and straight piped it with no change in how it runs so we put cats back on. and I have went through 4 tanks of 93 octane since this problem started. which I have noticed along with the lack of power it is also getting really bad fuel mileage. and the problem seems to be getting worse this morning it barley wants to move when you hit the throttle it took almost a half mile to get to 45 mph.
dont the phaser normally make noise when they are bad or have low oil pressure?
oil pressure cold @ idle 60, Hot @ idle 25, hot @ 2000 rpm between 55-60 fuel trim long term cold bank 1 -0.8 bank 2 +2.2 short term bank 1 -10.1 and bank 2 -10.1 Hot long term bank 1 +6.3 bank 2 +4.6
short term hot bank 1 between -0.7 to + 0.8 bank 2 between 0.0 to +1.6
