If you have a hih miles truck,it is very possoble you have aclogged cat.Have a muffler shop test pressure in front and behind by drilling small holes,checkin w/gauge,then welding back.This should be free if you replace the cat.

SOURCE: 1989 ford f150 w/ 5.0 liter..... engine light on

I would check the oil pressure of the engine. The reason is the timing chain tensioners are run with oil pressrue. I think your timing chain tensioners are leaking down when engine is getting to operating tempature . The oil is thinning down as warms up , as it should to lubercate . I would check compression and do a cylinder leak down test on all the cylinders. Then if the compression is good and the cylinder leak down is good. I would change all the timing components, ( chain, timing gears, timing chain tensioners )

Good Luck , I hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1990 F150 Fuel pump just replaced but wont turn on

Replace the fuel pump relay. And if your truck has dual tanks there's three fuel pumps, one in each tank and another secondary fuel pump.

It sounds like you might have a clogged catalatic converter on the exhaust system.

WELL WHAT ENGINE HAVE YOU GOT I know it must be either a V6 OR V8 and if the right hand bank of either 3 or 4 plugs leads are taken off and it still keeps the same and it dosent make any differance to the revs etc then it got to be a gasket on the inlet manifold on that head so that no petrol vapor is getting as it is sucking air only..
But what i carnt work out is how it run correctly on the Left hand bank only (IT CARNT)
There was a Army truck 1 tonner years ago that was a v8 and they had it to run on 1 bank of 4pistons {as a 4 cylinder engine} and after 150.000 miles they would take the old pistons out and fitted 4 more to the other bank and they kept running 100%.. but you havent got one of them sorry to tell you.. So let me know the answer to all above Ron

Won't start, engine wont rev above 2000rpm


Have the alternator tested. You are providing a low charge to the battery when you jump it and when taking it above 2K RPM requires more amperage resulting in the engine dying and the rough idle
