UHVC

I have been reading through these forums trying to help my father in law decide what was wrong with his truck. He has a 99 f250 with about 230k on the clock. The other day he was driving and the truck completely died. He took it to the dealer and they did a recall on it and put the cam position sensor on it and said they couldnt find anything else wrong. He says now when he drives it the truck feels like it has absolutely no power. So I have decided to check the harnesses under the valve covers. I just was wondering if there was a DIY on this with pics or if someone could explain to me what the small cover is on the drivers side valve cover would greatly be appreciated. That motor is intimidating with al lthe tubes hoses and wires running everywhere.

Thanks,
Jacob

These engines are really pretty easy and straight foward to work on. Ford sells what the call a wedge kit to make the UVCH fit tighter in the plug, but as far as a no power or loss of power problem that could be anything I would start with checking all of your intercooler boots and make sure there are tight and night leaking then ebpv tube if it gets clogged up it can cause this and your up pipes if they are leaking it will also cause this but these are just my opinion Im sure someone else will chime in with some other ideas

thanks for the reply. i will try and get up there tonight or tomorrow night and just start narrowing stuff down. i am sure its not a good idea to just assume it one thing and pull the valve covers off. Thank you for your suggestions and am ready to hear from other members.

THanks,
Jacob
