04 F250, Low power, LOUD fuel pump whine, wont rev
long story short, i drove the truck to the gas station monday morning to get gas for the lawn mower, everything was fine.
headed to work that night after stopping at the gas station (i leave it running when i go in, its barely a minute from my house). went to pull out in the road and ran it a little harder than normal driving (not wide open, but enough that it will shift at 3,000rpms.) when it hit about 3000, it stopped like i was holding the brake and throttle at the same time. i let off and it shifted, then i rolled into it again. this time 2500rpms and it stops there. wouldnt go any higher. drove to work (interstate) and cruised just fine at 65. got off the interstate and put it to the floor. boost spiked around normal (20ish psi) and then it hit the wall again, 3000rpms, with boost dropping to 13-14psi.
SCT said ICP was fluctuating between 580-590 at idle, with a spike in the high 3000psi range before it hit the 3000RPM mark, and the ICP reading would slowly decrease with the RPMS, not like an immediate drop. i stopped at a redlight and hit wide open throttle from a standstill. ICP spiked around 4100PSI (Livewire keeps highest reading listed until that is surpassed by a higher reading) and stayed in the high 3000's, but as soon as it hit 2500RPM's it stopped accelerating and bogged down. fuel pump under the cab seems unusually loud, but ive also been wondering if the ICP sensor isnt going in the crapper.
