suspect low fuel pressure to the injectors
run the fault codes to determine where the fault may be before you spend money

I have a 95 Ford F350 with the 460 motor. It started running fine when cold but after it warms up it starts to run rough, lose power, and runs REAL rich. I'm only getting a little more than 2mpg.


It Sounds like it is staying in the "cold start" routine. It also sounds like the diagnostic computer is not working right, because it must be rich and the O2 is not telling you a thing.

I would start by looking for a temperature sensor. You may have 2, with 1 being for the dash and the other being for the engine controls. You want to replace the temperature sensor for the Engine controls. This will help get it out of "cold start" routine.

Change your thermostat. The onboard computer does not monitor operating temperature.

Fuel pressure regulator. Have pressure checked.It could be forcing too much gas in each time an injector opens.

If you can not do this yourself, tow it in. At 2 mpg it may be cheaper to tow it than to drive any distance for repair. The Mechanics are going to need some gas left over in it to work on the engine.

Also turn on ignition and energize the fuel pressure, check for leaking fuel lines. Put on fuelcap locks if fuel drops when parked.

For this much of an extreme problem, I would like to know what you find wrong with it. I hope my solutions help.
