After it warms up it will slowly take off
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 11 months ago

Once warm in park does the engine respond correct to throttle applied?

Does runs rough mean you are feeling a misfire?

Is there smoke from the exhaust during this issue?

When cold does it operate fine?

Every now and then I will have a little smoke it feels like a miss when in gear and hard to start when cold and won't move when cold ipr reading 31.8 icp reading 500+
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 11 months ago

Idling cold and idling rough. What is the ICP pressure reading at that time?

Will your scan tool run power balance test?

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.

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
