Question about 1986 Ford F 250
There's only 94000 miles on this truck
Your truck is a 1997. Ford didn't offer a V-6 in 95&96. The more specific and detailed the information is, the better and faster I can try to help you. Excessive Fuel consumption can be caused by several different failures. A clogged air filter, dirty or defective fuel injector, damaged or faulty EGR valve, loose distributor, change in the timing, increased back pressure, tune-up is needed, or O2 sensors are clogged or defective. These are all possibilities, please list what you have checked, what you have found, and what the codes are (just post the P___, code/s. No need to post what the code means). If you don't have your own code reader. Autozone will read it for free. You will need to keep the car running if shutting the car off will shut off the engine light. Note: Bring someone with you so the car isn't left unattended.

Hi! This will mean that the engine is too lean. Please do check the intake manifold gasket and the vacuum lines for they are surely worn and may have cracks on it. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!
