My 1991 ford F350 w/460 EFI is really hard to start after sitting for a week or so, and once I have it running it does not want to rev. It pops and misses, almost like a bad mass air flow sensor.


Sounds like a lean misfire condition. Have you run a fuel pressure test? Should be 55-60 lbs. If pressure is ok during idle and reving, Ttry disconnecting MAF and see if any difference on accel.

83 f250 with 460. will start and idle for 5-10


What a great truck I've had two, one I drove around in mexico for 6 months. You need to change the fuel filter. It is located under the truck on the fuel line coming from tank about even with the seat. You need a wrench set. Make sure you have the arrow on the new filter going the proper way, toward the motor. Good luck, thats a tough truck

1983 Buick LeSabre Wagon, cuts out driving down the road


Find the EGR valve on the intake and locate the vacuum hose that is connected to it. Start the engine cold and as it warms up, pull the hose off and if it idles and drives fine, the EGR valve is bad and needs to be replaced. Please rate me on this answer.

1990 f150 w/5.8 FI motor, idles good, take on road, it boggs down


Have you changed the tps? The tps is like a dimmer switch with the idle being the lowest setting and everything above that being progressively stronger. If the switch is bad it will not advance spark or gas flow.
