I even brought it to ford end they told me that the truck looses compression at high rpms and it needs a new head. So i had the engine rebuilt new head, new timing belt ,water pump and so on. Im just tired of wasting money and now some one tells me it could be a bad computer anyone have any ideas. anything will help thank
you should do a fuel pressure test, you want about 65 koeo and koer. you also want it not to drop more than about 8psi in 5 minutes after the truck is turned off.
Has your cel ever thrown any codes? have you tried to check for pending codes that might not set of the CEL
