Got a 99 chevy silverado 4.8 litre.codes are lean bank 1 and 2 put fuel pressure guage on and reading 20 ilbs pressure jumps to 41 ilbs . then drops back to 20 ilbs could it be the fuel pump?


My info says fuel pressure 55--62 psi. Yes, probably the fuel pump. Usually low pressure is a problem on the supply side. You can be thorough, check proper voltage and ground at fuel pump connector. Check inline fuel filter. I've checked inline fuel filters before where the fluid that ran out looked like dirty water. Don't take connections loose from inline fuel filter unless your sure, no pressure on the system.
You could block the return line, where applicable, momentarily, to see if pressure will go high. If not, it should be the pump.

Van running like its missing


the problem is not in the plugs , wires , cap , rotor but in dirty injectors or injector controls and wires
use a quality injector cleaner for a few tanks of fuel
ECM controlled cars do not a tune up as the computer does that 60 times a minute so all you need to do is to run the fault codes and fix the faulty sensors
fault codes are being recorded all the time and only the serious engine or transmission faults put the engine light on

1996 ford full size bronco, 302 engine, starts and runs fine, under power it bucks and misses and has no power. let off gas and is ok again. A test shows a misfire on the #4 cylinder. The plugs, wires and...


Is this a 4.9L engine? An inline 6? My database doesn't show a 4.9L in that model year. It does show that engine in 95.
Did you visually check for spark at number 4 cylinder?
For 95-- 4.9L--fuel pressure--50--60 psi. Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, see if fuel pressure will hold for a bit with everything off.
Fuel--spark--compression. Some ford makes and models, ford can disable the fuel injector, if misfire is detected. I only mention this because, swapping injectors may not be conclusive? You can check for fuel injector pulse, anyway.
How long since over-all tune-up? You did get a new fuel filter, if inline filter, correct?

My number 3 spark plug is misfiring i tuned it and its misfiring


Tuned-How -Spark plugs??

You have a misfire, you say on #3,
that isn't a plug issue

Have you tested the ignition module

Have a scope put on secondary ignition,
so you don't keep throwing parts at it

Car is sluggish and tends to bog down during hard


Could be several possibilities none of which I may be able to eliminate:
1. Tune-up!  You are not getting enough spark or Fuel!  Plug-wires may be cross-firing or bad ground from body to the engine - run a new ground wire to engine from battery or body-ground.
2. Replace fuel filter or do fuel pressure test to determine if f-pump is weak or lodged with corrosion or dirt particles.
3. replace plugs and wires and clean coil-pack ignition module (where plug wires originate from) use a brake-cleaner or throttle-body cleaner but be sure fumes are evaporated and dry before starting or spark could cause explosion from fumes. Oil on module could cause spark to jump.  Do not run plug wires along each other or will jump spark, wires must be crossed once or twice for prevention of this.\
4. check all vacuum lines around engine - a cracked vacuum line can cause a lot of problems.
5. injectors may be dirty or bad - easier to replace complete intake from scrap-yard then to pay $100.00 for new injectors each!
6. Coil-pack on ignition module could be cracked and may need to be replaced.
These are only possibilities of course with the little info you provided.
Hope this helps.

I have a 2000 Ranger with 4 litre v-6. Lately when I start it, it doesn't start the first time I crank it. It starts alright the next time. What would cause this situation?


Try a general tune up; new spark plugs ( properly gapped), new spark plug wires, new air filter, new oil and filter. The first thing I would do is run 2-3 bottles of injector cleaner though several takes of fuel and see if that clears the problem up. If the injector cleaner helps than it means you have alot of carbon buildup on your valves, piston heads, and spark plugs; if this is the case I would keep putting 1 bottle of injector cleaner in at every fillup for several months just to get rid of as much of the carbon as I could.

The car shakes back and forth and has about one half of the power it used to have, it seems one of the cylinders isnt working


SOUNDS LIKE IT NEEDS A MAJOR TUNE UP, PLUGS,PLUG WIRES ,CAP,ROTOR BUTTON, FUEL FILTER,AND A FULL FUEL SYSTEM CLEANING,BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE MOST OF YOUR PROBLEM IS THE PLUGS & WIRES, IF THAT DOES THE TRICK ,I WOULD REPLACE THE FUEL FILTER,AND PUT SOME REALLY GOOD FUEL SYSTEM CLEANER IN IT TO HELP CLEAN THE FUEL INJECTORS, & SYSTEM, BECAUSE IF PLUGS & WIRES DON'T FIX IT ,IT COULD ALSO BE A BAD,OR CLOGGED FUEL INJECTOR,AND ANOTHER BUT LESS LIKELY CAUSE FOR A MISS ,OR A DEAD CYLINDER IS A BURNT OR BAD VALVE,OR IT COULD HAVE JUMPED TIME ,DUE TO NOT REPLACING THE TIMING BELT ON IT'S SCHEDULED TIME.

Is there any way to test the injectors on my 98 chevy S10 4.3


DID you put in new gas, fuel treatment, new sock on fuel pump, all new fuel filters, buy inline fuel pressure gauge, check for codes?, this is not a carb where you pour fuel at it , do you have a repair manual for your truck and have you checked troubleshooting guide?
