Well, for those of you following the saga with my truck... I'm about to pull my hair out. After my ordeal with Pick N Pull today, I have put a new MAF in my truck... Well I just got back in from taking it around the block after letting it sit with the battery unplugged for an hour or so; so that the computer would reset. It idled much better, but when driving it, it's STILL weak. It's so slow it's not even funny.
So, the new, longer list of fixes includes...
New air filter
New fuel filter
New 02 Sensors
2 doses of injector cleaner, no improvement
Fuel pump and fuel pressure check out OK
Distributer checked out OK
-Very, very slow and underpowered... It's getting to the point where sometimes I literally am having trouble keeping up with traffic
-Chugging gas (14mpg)
-It's idling smoother, but when I first start out, it kind of chugs a little.
I'm getting so sick of this... I've got a set of brand new Bosch Platnium +2 spark plugs going in tomarrow, and we'll see how that goes. Honestly, after all this, if it's just the plugs, I'm going to be PISSED. I'm trying to think of what it could be... I'm 99.9% confident that I don't have any blown seals or gaskets, because all my fluids come out fine, only oil in the oil, only coolant in the coolant, ect, and it has never smoked of any kind. Last oil change it was a quart low when I refilled, but it may have just been that I'm a retard and put 4 quarts in the time before, not 5. The only thing left I can think of is the plugs and the EGR valve/tube, and if the new plugs don't help, and I have a suspition they won't, that just leaves the EGR system... Which I don't know how to test and I can't afford to fix right now.
Thoughts? Any help is greatly appreciated.
