Hi,

There have been a couple of service bulletins for that type of concern. One will have to do with the PCM ground wire corroding,(which doesn't sound likely to yours, being it has been going on) and the other, ( misfire DTC under load) may be the problem. It has to do with the valve stem to guide clearance, (apparently not enough when the engines were built) Here is what they are.


Subject: SES Light and P0300 When Towing, Cruising Uphill or on hard Acceleration - kw 4.3, 5.0, 5.7 accelerate cruise cylinderhead DTC L30, L31, L35, LF6, LU3, P0300, P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304, P0305, P0306, P0307 P0308 # PIP3081 - (07/23/2004)
Models:
The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom described in the PI.
Condition/Concern:
The vehicle may exhibit a SES Light due to a P0300 and misfire. If the misfire is related to the information below, it will typically happen while cruising uphill, pulling a trailer or on hard acceleration and then stop misfiring shortly after returning to an idle. Typically, cylinders 3, 4, 5 or 6 will be the ones to experience this.
Recommendation/Instructions:
If the P0300 SI diagnostics did not isolate a concern, the following may help:
Remove the valve cover, valve springs and valve seals on the effected cylinder or cylinders. A small wire tie or rubber bands can be placed in the valve stem keeper groove to prevent the valve from falling into the cylinder. Rotate the valve while moving it up and down in the guide to see if it binds. If a binding valve is found, remove both cylinder heads and use either of the following methods to increase the stem to guide clearance:
^ Send the head out to a machine shop and advise them to increase the valve stem to guide clearance to 0.002 inch per guide.
^ Hone the guide with a 9 mm hone, such as Snap On BCG249, until a clearance of 0.002 inch is obtained. This will usually take about 4 strokes of the hone.
Reassemble the cylinder heads using new valve seals.

with Active Fuel Management(TM) and E85 Flex Fuel

If you encounter vehicles that exhibit the above conditions, refer to SI for the appropriate DTC(s) set. If no trouble is found, the cause may be due to an ECM ground terminal that has corroded with rust over time. Inspect the main engine wiring harness ground terminal (G103) for this condition.

Remove either the nut or bolt securing the main engine wiring harness ground terminal (G103) to the right cylinder head. Refer to the above illustration to determine where the ground is located on the vehicle (1).
Remove all rust from the ground terminal, the cylinder head and the retaining nut or bolt.
Position the main engine wiring harness ground terminal and install the nut or bolt.
Tighten:
Tighten the retaining nut or bolt to 16 N.m (12 lb ft).

Engine knocking at startup


bad air/fuel mixture could cause rod knock like that, which is a for of backlash or whip like action. Detonation, like very poor grade of fuel. IF your engineis running really rich, the extra rich fuel goes by your piston rings and thins out your engine oil. If you have a bad ROD bearing, it is probably TOO LATE. CLEAN YOUR THROTTLE BODY and IAC valve, since these things fine tune your FUEL/AIR mixture and PREVENT rich running. GOOD LUCK!!

I have a 2004 f-150 5.4 liter with 100,000 niles


When was the last tune-up?

Inspect few plugs for carbon ash (lean running) or wet (rich running).

Clean Mass Air Flow sensor with CRC Mass Air Flow Sensor cleaner

Change air filter

Change PCV valve (under $10 item)

Ran a tank of Chevron gas with LUCAS fuel system cleaner additive.


Inspect for vacuum leak.
Start from the brake booster (round metal drum) and work you way outward.

2001 Tahoe: Hard to start, idles rough, check engine light on.


Flashing check engine light is missfire, fuel pump probably causing multiple tries to start.Having to build fuel preasure,vac leak on one side of intake probably causing rich/lean condition.Also check back preasure to cat ,Sound like you are moving down right track.Mas air flow would probably set lean code bank1 and lean code bank2

Running rough, studders on acceleration, no power.


FIRST, I WOULD TUNE IT UP WITH PLUGS, WIRES CAP AND ROTOR. THEN I WOULD GET SOME REALLY GOOD FUEL INJECTOR CLEANER AND USE AS DIRECTED. MAKE SURE THE TIRES ARE INFLATED TO SPECS AS THIS CAN REDUCE MILEAGE AS WELL. AN INTAKE CLEAN CAN ALSO HELP IT RUN CLEANER AND MORE EFFICIENT. HOPE THIS HELPS. LET ME KNOW. GOOD LUCK

2002 gmc yukon, rich fuel code, low fuel pressure @40


you may have two oxugen sensors on your yukon. if so the oxygen sensor that controls that bank may be bad. from what you mentioned in your complaint, it sounds like it is the oxygen sensor.

the ......fuel pressure regulator is on the fuel rail near the rear of the intake manifold it is round in shap. i would first check to see if you have a problem with your O2 sensors. also i would have the TPS sensor checked. the TPS is what controls your idle. it is located on the throttle body is black in color and has a weatherproof plug to it. please rate this.........thanks
