    If the computer will not pickup the problem your IP sensor could be bad or EGR valve there has been many complaints about the 6.0's..you could have any number of problems espescially since it is all electric and runs through your computer...if your computer reads a problem it will continue to read the same problem until reset

You got a tough one there. They can have many problems. You will need to have the codes scanned and a thorough diagnosis. It could be a simple reflash of the pcm as well. My advice is to have it scanned for DTC's. You could have EGR valve problems, Hi psi oil supply problems, or even a turbo that is sticking.

Ford laser 99 no power


Hi there.
well when you throttle up to about 2000rpm do you get blue smoke coming out the exhaust.When driving on flat road will it power up as normal with out missing or getting hot.
what colour was the old spark plugs were they black or light brown.
When you start engine and run for 3 minutes then let it idle and remove oil filler cap do you get smoke coming out.
Number 1 if yes then engine is lacking power due to piston rings worn answer rebuild engine.
Number2 spark plugs brown [good] if black soot as num1.
Number 3 if you get black smoke or blue ,then the engine is lacking compression could be your problem as num1
OTHER WISE GET YOUR TIMING CHECKED AND SET TO BOOK.

2005 f250 6.0 diesel started to sputter them died wants to start but won't


The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

Hi I have Ford Focus 2.0 trend 2000 modle and it smokes heaverly on start up but once it is warm no smoke at all. I have recond the head complete and sent it back for a check, they there is nothing wrong...


I would need to know what color this smoke is because of it is white then I would say that you are probably witnessing normal operation. Modern Cat. Converters are designed to reduce emissions to carbon dioxide and water. This water condenses in the exhaust as it cools while shut off and produces white smoke when restarted until the exhaust is warm enough to evaporate the moisture. If the smoke is blue then you are getting oil leaking into the cylinder and it is probably coming from the valve seals but without a visual inspection that is impossible to be sure.

Lack of power and rough idle


Is your "check engine" or "service engine soon" light on? Lacking power is usually an emission system problem, for instance possibly a bad EGR valve or mass air flow senser. O2 sensers are common to fault but normally doesn't cause power loss usually causes alittle rough idle. Could even be a pluged catalic converter to. have the truck plugged into a scanner, that will tell you the trouble codes and fault info.

2007 crown vic 4.6 l idles high on startup


This sounds like a normal condition.What happens is the cold start emission reduction component monitor(software program in the computer) is running.
Cold Start Emission Reduction Component Monitor
The Cold Start Emission Reduction Component Monitor was introduced for the 2006 MY on vehicles that meet the
LEV-II emission standards. The monitor works by validating the operation of the components of the system
required to achieve the cold start emission reduction strategy, namely retarded spark timing and elevated idle
airflow.
When the CSER strategy is enabled, the idle air control system will request a higher idle rpm, elevating engine
airflow. While this CSER elevated airflow is requested, the low airflow test compares the measured idle airflow from
the MAF sensor to the commanded idle airflow from the idle air control strategy.

Eng. rpm not dropping when clutching & at idle, rpms go up & down


Here are a couple things to try. The idle surge is a common problem. Ford makes an adjustable plate like the one below. It allows come control over your idle. I made one and it eliminated most of the surging. I think the Ford part is about $30. Can't seem to find the ford part number though. Search online.

Try www.fordfuelinjection.com or other ford sites. Lots of great information.
My 89 seems to roar loud when cold when coming back down to idle and I am sure its the fan clutch. I have also heard the water temp sensor can cause idle problems because the EEC does not know what state the engine is in. (hot/cold, etc)
Hope this helps. I do recommend the adjustable plate though.
