the pickup in tank broke so when the needle got around quarter tank it was time ti fill up. ran rough, so the mechanic changed my cps which did nothing and ended up changing the number 8 injector as well as replace an oring on my hpop, oh and charged my ac. the ac in this truck sucks if you ask me though.
just cant believe this thing runs no different, i hate to complain but man this just sucks. its also so slow it wont get out its own way, i dont see how these things can tow stock.
the motor also sounds more clattery, if thats a word.

you have symptoms of air in your fuel lines which happens when you run the fuel level too low. Can you drop the tank yourself and fix it?

no i cant. the mechanic only charged 200 bucks to drop the tank but i cant afford that again right now. i did run it low though and it droped a cylinder and ran real bad so i went and filled it up and after a minute it started running better. that was a couple weeks ago, wouldnt the air be out the lines by now?

the truck just has no low end power, for me to pass somebody i have to turn roughly 2200 rpms if not more. it almost feels like something is holding the truck back when getting up to speed.
my buddy has same truck but has a striaght pipe with airaid intake with superchip and built tranny and he will walk away and hide on me. i just cant see those few upgrades making that much difference.

sorry i have no clue. i was told my hpop was good.
not sure what my next move is. i was hoping to put some injectors and a aftermarket hpop but spent most of my money on other repairs to truck.
the stock ford injector cost me $354.36.

The #8 injector was never needed in the first place. You need a new mechanic.
