Fuel Pump and Performance ????????
What are the symptoms of a weak and leaky fuel pump?
Found mind to be leaking and last weekend pulling the 5th wheel, I hit a head wind traveling 60mph in 5th gear, at 1800-1900rpms. RPMs started to drop and I could not accelerate to compensate for the lack of speed, so I had to drop it down into 4th and could stay steady at 55mph with about 2300rpms showing on the gauge.
Going up a long, but not so steep grade, had to drop in down into 3rd gear at 2800rpms just to stay at 45 mph.
Each time, my EGR would climb to about 1150*
I bought the truck thinking that a diesel would have no problem pulling almost anything.
My 5th wheel loaded (no water) and the 4 of us in my truck should only be about 10,100 lbs.
I have a Power Hungry 6 position chip (was set on heavy tow)
3.5 Down pipe, no CAT into 4” exh.
DIY intake (6630, not sure if that’s right on the filter)
Manual trans, single mass fly and clutch with a 4.10 Rear end
2 wheel drive with standard E rated truck tires, no big meats.
That’s pretty much all the mods Iv got
I do have a new pump and a Fuel Bowl reseal kit from Diesel O Rings, just wanting to know if I expecting to much from this 1995 F250 PSD
Will be bumbed if I am.
