Question about 1997 Ford F250 SuperCab
I have an 1991 Ford f250 with a 5.8L gas engine, it runs really ruff and will only stay running if u work the gas up and down. it will not idle or accelerate without bogging down and will die if I hold the gas steady. I have replaced the plugs, wires, distributer cap, rotar. all where showing sings of ware anyway. I also replaced the fuel filter, fuel pump ran a pressure check on the fuel rail and the pressure is over 30#. ran a vacuum test on the pressure regulator and it held at over 30 lbs vac for over 30 min. I am running out of ideas and any advise would help
Fuel pressure should be 35 - 45 psi.could have faulty tps sensor.could have intake vacuum leak or ignition timing valve timing off due to worn timing chain.do engine vacuum test replace all vacuum hoses bad leaking egr valve diaphram or gasket will cause engine run poorly.

I would take the truck to an autoparts store and have the fault codes retrieved from the computer. Most stores will do the scan for free. I would lean toward a faulty throttle position sensor, but that's just speculation. The fault codes should narrow the problem down. Hope this helped and best wishes.

i had a van do this same thing to a tee turned out to be a broken key pin in the harmonic balencer causing the timing to ****** replaced balencer and ran like a dream there is a crank sensor grid on the balencer when the key pin broke it trew the timing off
