    2001 f150 80,000 mi When moving along at 40 to 50 mph, it feels like im riding into the wind. Its very slight, like it doesn't know which gear to settle into. And its been very slugish on recent cool morns. I also feel a clunk when I take off from a start. Even slowly. Everyone test drove it. no one knows. I can fix my own stuff. they want money to look. thats bull.

I would start with a good tune up
plugs, wires, cap,rotor. fuel filter . and clean your throttle body
a bad O2 sensor will not make it spit and sputter that is a misfire.
good luck

My truck is spitting and spuddering when it gets up to about 45 or 50 the more i give it gas the more it acts up. it cranks fine and doesnt smoke


When was last time fuel filter was changed? For that matter, when was last healthy tune up - plugs, wires, all fluids & filters? Those old Ford PU's are nearly bullet proof. I suspect fuel filter (and maybe a good fuel system cleaner with next tankful)

My truck idling low and it spits gas out the exhaust


I know that you did not mention any overheating but have the cooling system checked for hydrocarbons or do a compression test (all cyls should be within 20% of each other. Even if you had one completely dead cylinder, it is very difficult for wet fuel to get through an exhaust system without vaporizing. Your symtoms sound very much like a partially failed head gasket.
I could be wrong, but without the benefit of being there, that's what it sounds like.

You replace alot of things but you should replace the EGR valve and the throttle positioning valve also. I would start with the EGR valve

My tuck idles low and spits gas out the exhaust


Since you have replaced all those parts already, I would suggest checking out the egr valve. Also I was wondering how the coilpacks or distributor are acting? Is the truck firing on all cylinders? Very possible you have leaky injector also.

2001 f 150


Discount tire has a website for different tire sizes and how the sizes affect the speedometer reading. I changed my tires from a 60 to a 65 series and gained about 5% better mileage. Basically my speedo shows 70 and I am doing 74. So I get 4 free miles every 70 miles on the odometer. Too much change will rob you of power.

WON'T KEEP RUNNING


Check the exhaust compression. Remove the O2 sensors before the cataylic converts and see if it improves. If it does that means your cats are cloged and need to be replaced.
