95 Running like its on 3 cylinders..
my 95 f250 with a 5 speed is running like its on 3 cylinders....
ive had it for 3 weeks now.. the first week i had it it did this 2 times...
i went out after work, truck was sitting unplugged in 30 degrees or below for 9 hours, i started it and the check engine light kicked on and it ran like **** for about 5-10 seconds and then the light kicked off and the truck was fine..
now this morning i went out and started the truck and it did the same thing, except the light wont turn off and the truck continues to run like ****. i check the oil, its fine, other than being like 150 miles overdue for a change (and im doing that this weekend). i start the truck back up and it does the same thing, let it run till it gets warm, light turns off truck runs fine.. heading to work it does it again and it has NO power. i floored it in 2nd and im pretty sure i could have run faster.
after work i go out, same thing. I went and filled the front tank up thinking maybe its just crappy fuel, changed the fuel filter and air filter, checked the oil again, and added some fuel stabilizer/injector cleaner... still running terrible..
the RPM stays right where it should, but it sounds and feels like it only has 3 cylinders... could this possibly just be because i need an oil change?
any help or reccomendations will be appreciated, thankyou in advance.
