New truck issues showing up

Hi I am about at my wits end with a new to me truck. It is 1999 f250 with 156000 miles. My current issues are that when it idles it sounds as though it is a big block cam. My ford mechanic thinks it has bigger injectors in it. Does this sound right? Also when it shifts down from overdrive it will slam into gear causing a jerk. I was wondering if all of this is due to not being properly tuned with a chip.

Well if you have aftermarket injectors and not a tune, yes it will cause all kinds of problems like this. Best thing to do is pull them and send them to a place like Rosewood to get tested fully and check your UVCH wires when you pull the valve covers for any corrosion. Any codes being thrown? You need a good scanner like AutoEnginuity or something similar.

I was told it has new uvch and they replaced the injector orings. It isn't throwing any codes. I finally got the eot sensor fixed and ebpv sensor and tube. It is almost as if it runs cold. It will idle at 900 rpm when I am stopped at stop sign.

I would check the icp and ipr next and have it scanned for any codes from Ford or a good scanner. If all that checks out then I'd be pulling the injectors

Icp is brand new and no codes after it was put in at ford except for the eot sensor which I fixed with a sensor and pigtail. I am wondering if I would be money ahead to just get new injectors. I am on the fence about keeping the truck since it needs body work from rust issues. Nothing like living in north east Indiana

I'd send out injectors to Rosewood

If the truck has been maintained decently you got plenty life left in those injectors. Really need a good scan tool. Your accelerator pedal position switch could be acting up causing a high idle. Idk about other injector builders but mine have 160/30 etched on the injector hold down. Even than if they were anything other than stock I'd probably still send them all off to a reputable builder and have them gone through for peace of mind.

How do u like your 160/30? Much better than stock?

Yea they're definitely better than stock. I'm still running stock turbo and wheel and there is a little lag. If I give it to much throttle leaving a stop and making a turn it will break loose as soon as the turbo lights lol. Not sure how far I could spin them as I haven't cared to try. Should be rebuilding turbo and installing a ww2 this coming weekend as well as a few other things while the turbo is out. Once all that is done I'll probably be taking it up to PHP for a dyno run and see what she throws down.

I want some new injectors so bad but I think if I go 160/30 I'll want larger
