p1280, p0470 and inconsistent power.
I have searched and searched and only found threads where there is no follow up with what they did.
1995 F250 2wd auto, Wildman tunes, intake, DP and fpr mod. Fuel bowl cleaned 2 years ago(time for another one).
I've only had to replace the BPS (barometric pressure sensor) on the truck due to hard shifting when I first got it, been fine since then.
1. Now I get a check engine light and the truck will run sluggish and shift hard. I unplug the ICP when this happens and no change. But with the check engine light off i'll pull the plug and it bogs down then idles back up. I cleaned the oil off the plug and it still happens every once in a while. I can usually turn the truck off then right back on and it will go away. I just can't see spending $230 on a sensor at the moment so i'd like to make sure that is it for sure.
2. For the other issue is the EGR tube and sensor which were completely clogged. I got the tube cleaned and put it all back together but i'm sure I need a new sensor, anyone ever notice a difference after cleaning theirs and a new sensor?
3. Also thinking about a TPS sensor change if that will make any difference. Sometimes i'll start the truck and have great throttle response and sometimes it's a little sluggish. I did put a 203 thermostat in and it's made a world of difference but I still got this issue. Any input?
