Question about Ford F 450 Super Duty
I have a 1990 ford 460 EFI cylinders 1,2,6 has no change or little in RPM when spark plug wires removed.The three spark plugs has black carbon on them. I replaced them with new ones with new wires.Compression is 150 lbs.All spark plugs fires. The fuel injectors click when engine is ruing. Check engine goes off when engine is ruing. The engine is missing and rough idle.Can anyone help? Details
Check that the egr valve is not stuck open remove it and cover the hole on the intake side and see if it goes away or with engine running remove the vac line from the valve and install a short length of hose and suck on the hose to draw a vac on the valve it only takes 3-5 inches of vac to open it the engine should stall or run even worse if it is not stuck and if it was stuck open you didnt change anything

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Windstar runs rough.
remove the coil pack and look at bottom of it if it shows any cracks coil is bad very common on these vans if you have a noid light check for injector pulse on #4 if you have pulse and good blue spark most likely the injector is bad you have to remove upper plenum to get injectors out let me know how you make out

Testimonial: "whats decarb.. ??? and whats leak test on the cylinder ? please help ..."
Perform a valve clearance inspection and adjust if necessary. Tight or sticking valves will cause a misfire or rough running concern. Note: Perform valve adjustment when the engine is stone cold. 4cyl: INT 0.26mm EXH: 0.30mm (V6 engine are hydraulic and no adjust necessary.) Also check for a sticking or stuck open EGR valve. For diagnostic purposes only: Remove the EGR valve. Place a business card over the EGR passage and bolt the EGR valve back on. This plugs the EGR ports and if the misfire goes away the EGR valve is partially stuck open and is defective.
Check for low fuel pressure. Check for low compression. Check cam timing. Check for a weak ignition coil. Also don't over look the possibility of worn or broken engine mounts which cause excessive engine movement and engine vibration. -hope this helps
