Question about 1992 Ford F350

1 Answer

Why does my 92 ford f350 keep dying while I'm driving. It only happens when I take my foot off the gas peddle. It seems like as the RPM's drop the don't level out. But when I start it and let it Idle everything is fine. I don't want to take it to the shop if it is going to be an easy fix. Any help out there?

If it was me i would put so Shell-gasoline in it along with so STP gas treatment with fuel injector cleaner and change the fuel filter and the air filter if needed give these websites a try and if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your truck wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

Drive vehicle down the road for 20 minutes and come to a stoplight engine stops when you take foot off gas peddle and go to apply brake. To keep vehicle from dying you have to hold the gas peddle down

Have you changed the timing belt? or timing belt guides? How many miles? This does not necessarily have to do with fuel.... Could have to do with air intake or timing as well....

I just replaced my 89 ford 302 with a 92 302. It starts but only with my foot on the accelerator then dies.

This sounds like a vacuum leak. Look close at the intake for a pipe or a tube that may be missing a plug or an additional hook up. If you can get it to stay running with patting the gas peddle have some one spray wd40 around the manifold and when they get close to the leak the engine will rev up and smooth out. Hope this helps.

Drastic change in rpm on incline and dies while coasting

one of the things your car is famous for is bad fuel pumps ... if you frequently drive on a nearly empty tank then suspect that fuel pump .. they have a plastic impeller that depends on a continuous flow of fuel to keep cool .. if you are low on gas then it might capture some air as you go around corners or up a hill .. when that happens the impeller overheats and then you have problems until its replaced ..(not an easy job) ... you can have the fuel pump tested for voume and pressure .. if you never let the car get low on gas then that may not be the problem .. yoiu should also check or change the fuel filter ..

Dies when I take my foot off the gas peddle.

Your Fuel Pump or Fuel Filter is Bad. Replace the Filter and see where you are.

Engine Turns Off when running AC

Your throttle speed sensor(idle speed sensor)is not working properly.It's job is to keep the the engine at the proper rpm range when you are not applying the gas peddle.This is the most likely cause.

Truck starts and idles down as normal. If one guns it the revs will soar. If one tries to increase the rpm gradually the engine quits at about 2000 rpm. At this point if one lifts ones foot of the gas...

You may have a vacuum leak. My problem was with the L-shaped rubber hose at the top of the engine near the firewall. It had collapsed and dry-rotted. Replaced it and my truck runs like a gem. I believe it was fouling out my coils on plugs. This may not work, but would not hurt to try. Good Luck!
