Power and MPG loss, thoughts?
Hey guys, been running my truck on the economy setting for a good while now, and decided to have some fun today on the way home from classes. I noticed a few strange things happening at one time since last night.
1. I have burned about twice as much fuel as usual since I filled up last night. (1/2 tank, usually only a quarter)
2. My needle on the boost gauge is vibrating wildly above 20 psi
3. The truck seems less responsive, and has a noticeable power loss.
4.The usual black cloud I leave behind me seems much more grey and hazy than before.
My buddy suggested the idea that one of my injectors may be tripping up. I'm not sure.
Any thoughts on the problem here?
