Surging

Hey there. I just bought a 2006 f250 regency with the 6.0. It seems to be surging slightly driving down the road. Any idea off the top of your head what it could be? There's no egr delete on it

Surging

Well thank you. I'm really excited about my upgrade to a diesel. I just got the truck so I'm not sure but from speaking to the previous owner the fuel filters were changed regularly. Now the spring upgrade (I'm not sure what that is), probably wasn't done. Could you inform me more about this?

Go up to the top of the page and type in the search area blue spring up grade. Also do you have any monitor on there yet? Edge or scan guage?

It has a banks iq programmer.. But as far as any other gauges, no. And I'll check that out. Are you thinking that's it? I heard from searching that people were saying they fixed it by some sort of sensors or some bull like that. I don't know

there is a seller on EBAY with new VGT solenoids for around $140, much cheaper than ford. I've bought from the seller before
