The truck is not leaking fuel anymore, but it still runs like doo-doo.
At idle, it will surge a little, then it will run like it has a dead hole or two (check engine light on) and then the check engine light goes out and it will run 5x better (but still not smoothly).
The guys at the local ford dealer said to bring it by and they would run a series of tests on it (for a fee). I am thinking that I should do this and find out for sure what is going on instead of part swapping.
I have fixed the leaky fuel pump, leaking vaccum switch and changed all the filters and fluids.
I left the fuel filter housing in, but I removed the mounting bolts. This gave me just enough room to re-install the pump with the new blue fuel lines.
And the Banjo bolt was a pain. I placed a rag under it to keep the washer/seal from falling down during re-assembly.
thank you for your input.
South Central Texas.
