Rough idle no power

Hey guys not new to the forum but I don't post much just mostly snoop around. But the other day I started looking at trucks, I found a 2002 f-250 crew cab long bed 197,000 miles with some problems and wondering what it would take to get here running good again if possible. I know for sure that the glow plugs system is messed up. There's an exhaust leak but is just doesn't sound right. I'm think bad injectors or low compression. When you give it gas and then let off it stays at that rm for a little longer then it should. It doesn't have much power under acceleration. Check out the video and tell me what you think.

Any check engine lights? If there is a light on, It could be the UVCH. I had to do the 50cent fix with mine. I had rough idle, horrible acceleration and the light. If it's running rough, could really only be fuel, if the fuel filter has never been changed that might cause it. Those are 2 common things i know of to cause that. LMK if it helps

i don't believe there where any check engine lights on its a truck i was planning on buying. If you watch the video there was a slight knock, would you now what that is.

It's hard to tell with a video, sound quality is never really right, ya know? If it was cold when he started it (not so much temp wise, just the truck hasn't been warmed up) You will get a kind of a knocking, just because everything is cold. One of my powerstrokes, lopes kinda bad and runs like garbage until i let it warm up for 10-15mins, my other one however with almost 100k more on it, starts up just great. It's really hard to tell what the problem is, unless i can actually drive it myself or hear it for myself. Maybe get a scanner and see if the light might just be out. If it is running rough, there really should be a code in there, especially for being a 2002. When My 01 had issues with the UVCH, I got it scanned and it told me what cylinders were miss firing and I was able to diag the problem myself. Let me know what you find.

My pickup all of the sudden started having the same symptoms. I replaced the injector pressure sensor and the exhaust back pressure sensor and it was back to normal. I was amazed the Ebp sensor would cause the motor to run like it was. It might be a place to start

Mine sounded like that exactly. I think bad injectors would result in white smoke.
