if it is skipping after its fully warmed then it looks like you need an injector. You can try some rev-x but that IMO only fixes the stiction when the truck is cold, but its worth a try.

Thanks for the reply. Doesnt feel like its something rev-x would help. Plus I just added some last oil change. I'm headed to ford now to get the injector. Gotta get the truck on the road. Does anyone have a how-to for s, and what tools I'll need?

The #1 injector is the passenger side front. The only "special" tool you'll need is either a long T40 or T45 socket. You'll need this to get to the injector hold down. Also a quarter drive air rachet with a wobler will make life easy for you. I also cut into the inner fender lining to get to the bottom three valve cover bolts. Let me know if you have any other questions. If i were you i would consider doing the updated stand pipes and dummy plugs while your in there.

I would suggest testing #1-2 and #3-4 injector pins with an ohm meter. They should be .4-.6 @ ambient temp. Open and closed coils.

Well got the truck back up and running yesterday. Replacing a fuel injector in a fishing resort parking lot wasn't exactly fun.

The only problem I really had was the clip for the injector wiring popped off and fell into the oil return hole in the head. Probably lost about 3 years off my life stressing about it, then I finally found it and pulled it out with a pair of hemostats.

Overall I would say it was a fairly easy fix. A hell of a lot better then paying Ford $700 to fix it.

Thanks for all the help guys.

Haha. I'm an engineer by trade. The only reason I had hemostats laying around was because they were in my tackle box and are great for pulling hooks and lures out of Northern mouths.
