Sounds like you might have a clogged fuel filter. I would also check the vacuum hose to the fuel pressure regulator. Have you checked the air filter? Any check engine light?

How do i adjust my holley carb on my f350 460 it has no pulling power after 55 mph and it wasnt pulling that heavy of a load when it started to drag


The screws are to adjust the idle mixture and speed. They have no effect on the motor at 55 MPH. To adjust the idle mixture
lower the idle speed to the lowest speed and slowly turn one screw in and out until you reach maximum rpm and then move on the another.

run the fault codes first to check for faulty sensors
what you describe indicates a problem in the exhaust in that when the exhaust gas volume reaches a certain level the sensors are reporting it and the ECM is not able to fix it
have an accredited exhaust shop check the cat converter
for failure and partially blocking the exhaust at speed
if it was a fuel pump you would run into problems long before the speed at which it occurs
AT best it could be an EVAP problem with the vent not working properly but I think that it is exhaust related

It feel like my transmission is slipping when I attempt to accelerate. My 2003 ford explorer feels like its "jumping" and it happens often. I am at about 107k miles, its a used vehicle. Also when...


Hi

It could be 2 things the rear differential for the 4 wheel drive or the torque converter, " is this an auto ?"
you may need to bleed the system through if this is the hydrolic set up, they have a slave cylinder and this can often be the cause if the fluid is low or has air in it.

Hope this helps
Get bac to me if you require more info

Tires would be the 1st place to check. If you seem to feel it more in your legs then it is likely the front, if felt more in seat bottom then could be a rear tire. Depending on how severe the vibration is there could be a tire developing a tread seperation and should be checked right away. A simple balance of the tire and wheel assemblies may be all that required also but when on a balancer they should be able to tell if the tire has a more severe problem.
Driveline components could cause vibrations also however if the above sounds like it fits then check that 1st.
