What AE Tests to run during drive cycle: Bucking and Surging at Constant Throttle

Howdy,

Just got an oil change with 15w40 Rotella on the 97 7.3 liter.
Also just cleaned EPV tube and new sensor install.

Symptoms: I am getting a bucking and somewhat lesser occuring surging at highway speeds (@70 mph and 2000+ rpms)

NO CEL

I have been searching ad naseum for solutions.

I have AE with enhanced package. What live tests should I run while driving to help diagnose?

By the way my Transmission range sensor is in the yellow (voltage) but don't know if this would contribute to the symptoms.

Thanks

OK, did a little research and ran some live tests.

At WOT:

RPM: 2993
IPR Duty Cycle: 37.11%
ICP PSI: 2442

According to Riff Raff this means my IPR is OK I think. Anybody concur, so I can rule out IPR with my bucking?

I have made some replacements that I will report back on, but have a quick question.

I have the fuel bowl out, banjo bolt out and two bolts that were holding down the fuel pump out as well.

Can I pull straight out with care? Or if I should turn the crankcase over by hand, what is the best way to do that? Don't have large socket and no moving wheels right now.

Any help would be appreciated.

Did it with a 1/2" drive craftsman from below. No breaker.
