911 Help - Missing #8, Codes, and Questions
So I am sure my truck is not the only one to have this issue.
My 2001 Excursion has the 7.3 Powerstroke it is also a Police vehicle, and is always being pushed hard.
Last Friday we had a extremely cold night for Texas. The next morning batteries are low and it did not want to start. The truck does not have a block heater. She finally cranked but it took a little bit. Typical cold start. I idled the truck most of the morning after getting to work.
Later that evening I had to step down on it. The truck had been running normally for a couple of hours at that point. I pushed it pretty hard for a few minutes there and then back to normal. I stopped for a stop sign and then the missing began.
The miss causes a shudder in the 1000rpm to 2000rpm range.
SES light comes on. I have the Hypertech tuner in place and pulled the codes.
First I get the usual P1AEE
I take it to Ford, they tell me the CPS will fix all my problems, of course it does not. So I order a gasket wiring harness kit and replace the left side. There were no visible issues with the one that was on it. I put it back together and nothing changes, same miss in #8.
I checked the ICP sensor, oil was present in the plug but the engine ran worse with it unplugged.
The engine has the AE injector in #8.
SO, I am going crazy trying to figure it out. I dont have the money to start replacing parts that are so expensive.
Please help. Literally 911!
