Missing when lugging... Had it scanned...

Hi ya....

2003 F-250 6.0

The truck missed when cold until warm up then as of late,
after warm up in high gear on the interstate it's developed a miss...

more so when your lugging the truck around.

Took it to the local parts store and they scanned,
didn't tell me an injector but the injector module?

I recently changed oil and filters (including fuel) and it seemed to have gotten worse.

I did put in some diesel kleen last night thinking maybe a sticky injector...

your thoughts...

(Even with a miss it still pulls better than my gas f-150)

Im subscribed, any help would be appreciated!

What were the actual codes? The Injector Module sounds like the FICM, which is a common problem with the 6.0L's. Measure the voltage cranking and while running. It should be 48v. Anything less and you have a problem.

Yeah, found it,
so far they say to test it,
using a volt meter, black on battery ground.
positive on the screw closest to the driver...

Also,
from what I understand on what I read,
you install it and have to get it reprogrammed... is that right?

I can, but I have to figure out a way to upload it...

I'll see what i can come up with!

compare it to a wet plugwire or a bad plug wire...
shakes you out of the truck.

It shakes? Mine shakes at highway speeds sometimes, but I kinda thought it was my tires...

Get a video quick! If you have a iPhone 4 or Droid you can shoot it and upload it directly to YouTube straight from the phone. Otherwise just get a video camera with decent quality, shoot it, them upload it via your computer.
