newbie , truck runs sluggish
Hey guys , i have been kind of searching for a board to join and was lucky enough to find this one ,seems like a real good place!!
Anyway , i just bought a 99 dually , it has 280 on the clock , pretty good shape , motor seems to sound good , but just has no power .
I changed the fuel filter which was black , pulled the K&N out and i swear i beat 2 pounds of finely compacted dust out of it , said forget it , and went and bought a paper one for now.
i thought that this would fix my sluggishness , a little more than it did.
But it is still really doggy feeling , a little better at the higher rpms but still not what i expected.
What i have noticed is it virtually blows no black smoke , and i mean so little that i cannot see it when i look out of my side mirror when im hard into it .
Truck runs with no misses that i can feel, cranks fairly easily ... what could it be.
I jumped the gun and bought an older model hyperteck programmer for it , and it helped a little even on setting two its not what i expected.
Oh and even with the programmer no increase in black smoke at all.....
someone please help , its driving me crazy.
99 f350 dually, auto all stock except for older hypertech
