SOURCE: Check engine light comes on 1988 ford f150

if u have a V8 test the upper intake manifold for a big vacuum leak at the base where it bolts to lower intake, use a can of carburetor spray, if it is leaking you will hear it when the carb spray hits the leak.

SOURCE: F150 97 4.2 V6. Runs fine at idle but when in

its posible that the inside lining of the tank is coming off and plugging the fuel pump strainer,or at least thats what happened to my f150,and its not getting enough fuel pressure.

SOURCE: f150 died while will starts but when

If the Engine light is staying on while the engine is running, this is where the diagnosis needs to start. The Engine Control Module needs to be scanned to find out which, of the many systems monitored by the computer is malfunctioning. That system will then have to be properly diagnosed to locate the actual cause of the problem. Only after this, can any effective repairs be made to your vehicle.

Engine was running slightly rough with some skipping/or jumping. check engine light is on. Changed oil today, engine no longer running rough but the check engine light is still on. 159,621 miles

Go to an auto parts store, they will scan your OBD II memory for the check engine light code. And from ther they should tell you why it`s on, and what needs to be fixed and/or replaced.

I recomend advanced auto parts.

Check the plug boots,to see if they are bad,or tune up is needed.Also can be a fuel pressure problem,change the fuel filter,if this does not help,have a fuel pressure test done,if there are any check engine lights on,have the codes read with a code reader,this will most likely tell on the problem.
