Question about 2000 Ford F150 Flareside SuperCab
Starts fine, idles fine. put in drive you hear spark knocking, going from idle to 35 mph the truck runs rough, acts like it is running on six cylinders. when I get on the freeway and punch the gas the rpms climb up to 6 and it acts like the truck is laboring for speed. I had it in the garage a couple times and $1100.00 the problem hasn't changed. The last time I took it in they said they cleaned the throttle body it worked for a day. so far they changed spark plugs a couple coil packs and supposely cleaned the throttle body. I need to find and fix this problem without costing more money. Any suggestions
There is a hose from the right valve cover to the rear part of the throttle body. check if it turned soft and is leaking
