Contribution/balance. Help ASAP!

Hey guys was driving and rolled to a stop and light and truck started running rough. Threw code P0263. Cylinder 1 Contribution/balance. What do I need to check for or do and what's it mean? I'm 800 miles from home so need help ASAP!

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.
