Other minor things that I need to fix
Okay I've got my truck running pretty well now. I've cleaned the whole EGR system and replaced the valve, pressure sensor, and solenoid. I've replaced all the rubber hoses on my canister purge valve except for the hard plastic hoses with an outer rubber shell.
Now some things that I need to address:
It has an ABS light that is on I've done some searching and they say to clean the front sensors with brake fluid. I can't replace the rear sensor yet because I will have to order it from Ford. Any other suggestions on this problem?
The next thing is my driver's side power window doesn't roll up. I can hear the motor run when I push the button, but it doesn't engage. I have a feeling that this isn't going to be too hard to fix.
Another thing I've noticed is that the steering has gotten a little stiff and I have to replace steering fluid occasionally. Maybe a steering pump???
Finally, my odometer is sticking. It's strange sometimes it will come on and sometimes it doesn't work. Sometimes if I tap the dash or the control panel it will start it moving again. The speedometer works fine and all the other gauges are working. I don't know?
Oh by the way I had a death squeal in my front end and thought it was the belt. I had changed the belt, idler, and tensioner without a fix. Well, I now think it was one of the hoses off my canister purge valve whistling with air coming out of a crack. Something to consider for some of you out there with a loss of power and a high pitched squeal or chirp. Did it mainly on the driver's side.
Other than these few things my truck is running really well. Sorry about the long winded post just looking for suggestions and maybe someone else might find something in what I've found.
