You disconnect injectors and you have 2 pistons running dry and the rings will burn. Engine wont run smooth and you won't like it. Find yourself a smaller car if you want fuel economy.

SOURCE: 2000 Ford F350 with a Triton V10 is misfiring in

A very common proplem with this engine is the coil packs sit on top of the spark plugs with a approx 4 inch boot to the spark plug. Especially when there is wet weather moisture will get the the spark plug hole and when the vehicle gets up to temp the moisture will atomize and ground out the spark plug. Sometimes it will not even need to get hot and once it starts missing won't go away.
You will need to run a scan to determine which hole is misfiring. Then disconnect that coil and remove the one small bolt retaining itand pull it up out of the hole. Then take compressed air and blow out the bottom of the hole to dry it out. Re-install coil and your problem should have gone away. If you have a scanner sometimes just clearing the codes and the miss will go away. Be careful taking it to a shop as most shops will just sell you with the fact that you have a bad coil and have it fixed in the process of selling you and installing a new coil of hey maybe they will just blow it out and seeing as it's fixed you now buy into the fact that they replaced a "bad coil". That is not to say that sometimes it is just a bad coil and nothing else will fix it.
v8 triton is the same motor as the v10 with just 2 more cylinders so v10 or 5.4 same thing will apply.

I know you can line up a new gasket on it and grind the ports to match the holes on the gasket anywhere it overlaps. This generally gives better air flow causing a boost in power.

SOURCE: 1986 FORD F 350 DIESEL 6.9 REPLACED INJECTOR PUMP

check to see that your mechanical fuel pump is working on the lower right side of the engine. VERY problematic pump due to design and location. Have you replaced your fuel filter with the injector pump swap? cause you need to do that , its a must If your getting fuel to your injector pump you have to bleed the lines to each cylinder to bleed out the air in the system. If that all checks out then you need to set the timing to 8 deg using a timing light and a diesel injection pulse width adapter timing tool. purchase a haynes manuel for 6.9l/7.3l diesel engines to follow the correct procedure for setting timing to manufactures spec. You will have to disconnect sensor at certain times during the timing stage so make sure it is done right!
PS - I hope you marked a reference line on the pump to line up with the line on the housing cause that will get you close to start! good luck

What should the resistance specks be on the injectors on a 1999 ford v10 motor .using a ome meter .trying to see if injectors are bad


You would only be testing the solenoid coil portion of the injectors. There is still the mechanical movement portion that would be in question as well as how clean the injectors are.
There may be injector testing available at some shops.
You can run some injector cleaner through (Sea Foam is amazing for all types of cleaning).
High octane fuel will do no good in cleaning or making your engine run better, so don't go that route.

How can I get better fuel economy out of my 2011 glr


when did the vehicle last have a major service ? i'd also consider adding a fuel addative , get one that covers the catalytic convertor as well as the injectors,valves etc , this will clear any carbon deposits etc that build up on the sensor points etc,this is particulary important if the vehicle does a lot of stop start journeys, take for a longish drive once the addative is in 50-100 km so that the engine gets to a good working temperature, also at a highish speed not poodling round town etc ,how often do you check the tyre pressures ? wrong pressures can have a major impact on fuel consumption

I have a motorhome 2002 V10 Ford Triton engine that is not starting. Engine turns over but it won't start, not getting fuel. Supposedly there is a fuel switch for the fuel pump. Does anyone know location


If it has an inertia switch, it should be on the passenger side near the door.
I would first check the pump relay to see if it is sending power to the pump thru the switch. And do you have a switch for dual tanks ?

Keep your services up also on the transmission. Try this simple fix, get some octane booster and injector cleaner and put them into the tanks $8. Hopefully this will help break off the carbon deposits in the injectors and give you a smooth economical ride. Good luck
