Question about 1988 Ford F 150
That is a typical problem with older vehicles especially with the bad grade gasoline we are using. I worked for Ford for years and I can just about bet that your converter is clogged up on the exhaust. When you loose power put your hand near the tailpipe (while the engine is at idle) and see if it is really hot when it comes out. BE CAREFUL !!! I have seen burns from this. What happens is when your vehicle is cold the converter has a honeycombe inside it and when it heats up the honeycombe that is already saturated expands and seals itself off. This is why you have no power. The engine has no place to release the exhaust. If ran to long like this it will probably cause you engine damage. Hope this helped, Good luck
