Question about 1993 Ford F250

Fuel useage from forward tank causes engine lugging

1993 dual tank F250, gas powered. Using the forward tank causes a loss of power when accelerating or going uphill, switching to rear tank immediately restores power. Engine runs at idle with no problem on front tank. It seems like tank line might be partially blocked or pressure is not equalizing in that tank.

Another cause of power loss in diesel engines is clogged fuel filter. Some vehicles have additional fuel filter INSIDE the fuel tank. I had my tank taken down and the inside filter cleaned and it fixed the problem. Some petrol stations and repair shops provide this service. If replacing the fuel filter in the engine compartment doesn't fix the problem, try this one. See FB "Toyota Innova Owners Phils" for more pictures.loss-engine-power-engine-still-running-ndjw3npn5oz5feiqbiqgnn35-5-0.jpgloss-engine-power-engine-still-running-ndjw3npn5oz5feiqbiqgnn35-5-2.jpgloss-engine-power-engine-still-running-ndjw3npn5oz5feiqbiqgnn35-5-5.jpgloss-engine-power-engine-still-running-ndjw3npn5oz5feiqbiqgnn35-5-9.jpg

1993 Lexus Ls400 loss of power a 2500-3000rpm when you accelerate hard on the gas pedel, hower if you press down on the gas pedal slowly the power will increase all the way up to 6000rps with no power...


Wish I had an answer - sounds very much like a problem I am having with my '92 LS400. I have a parts car, and have changed out the ECM, fuel pump, injectors, fuel pilter, fuel pressure regulator, ran the can with exhaust unbolted (check for clogged CATs, checked out my timing belt for slippage amoung other things, and nothing works. I have no check engine light on. Do you?

1993 Lexus Ls400 loss of power at 2500-3000rpm


Check your MAF and MAP sensor. The first 80% of your throttle signal from the TPS works with the O2 sensor to try to keep the air fuel ratio to 14.7 to 1 with the ECM controlling the fuel injector spray time and timing the ignition. After the 80% to WOT the ECM puts the O2 sensor in to an open loop and takes the Reading form the MAF and MAP sensor to run the engine richer so there will not be any Detonation to the engine and burning holes in the valves for running too lean. That is why it always feel like you get a little more when you ease off on the gas peddle from WOT. Recap check the TPS, MAF,and MAP sensor and wires to those sensors, if you can get the car scanned that would be great and you may find out which sensor may have gone bad, the other thing to is the fuel pressure regulator may be going bad and at WOT the pressure may be to high causing it to run to rich causing the loss of power. Good luck and hope this helps.

It sounds like a fuel delivery issue so it could be many things such as low fuel pressure from the pump,clogged or partially pluged fuel filter, a malfunctioning throttle posisitioning sensor (if you have a check engine light on) or if its turbo it could be turbo lag etc.

2008 F250 Diesel


It sounds like a problem with your computer or injection system. the computer controls the amount of fuel put in the cylinders when you step on the gas. But it sounds like your truck's computer is having problems controlling this and when you accelerate hard or are towing and step on the gas, the computer just pumps diesel into the cylinders which causes the rough running(i assume misfiring and what not) and the loss of power. But when your not towing or accelerating hard, you are better controlling the amount of fuel going into the cylinders so there arent any problems. Go back to the dealer and tell them there is a problem with the injection system and it adds too much fuel when you try to get a lot of power out of it.
