Running rought after turn with low fuel 04 6.0
Alright I've had my truck for about 9 months now. Late model 04 with 110k miles on it. Previous owner took good care of it. Truck had had the FICM replaced with a new unit at some point.
I was driving home the other night about 5 miles away from the fuel station. I had about an 1/8th of a tank left. Waiting at a redlight to make a left turn. Anyways, at the apex of the turn i gave it a little bit of pedal and it felt like i ran out of fuel for about a split second and then kept on driving but now with what seems like a miss and low power. I dropped my buddy off and drove home about 22 miles with the same seeming miss and low power. Hopped in my truck 2 days later hoping for it to be fine but it still seems the same. Truck fires right up as it always has and it runs the same hot as it does cold.
Made sharp turn with low fuel
gave it too much pedal
now runs very rough and has very low power
drove it about 22 miles home
no engine light on
still fires right up
have driven an additional 8 miles as well
Just looking for some advice here on where to start. Was hoping some air got sucked up and would work its way out but i dont think thats my issue anymore. I was a mechanic for a while as a career and still tinker around on the side so im pretty good with working on things. At this point i would like to avoid having to pay someone to run a scanner on it. Thanks in advance.
