scuffy glad to hear from you, from what i read you ARE the man. i don't know diesels yet but am trying to learn. my problem is a skip that has developed. i had a fuel leak (lift pump?) that ahs been replaced, and apparently stopped the leak, but the skip persists, i've been told to do a cylinder contribution test and a buzz tset, but noone has hardware compatible with my 95 psd. i have since also learned that the engine has been replaced, and there is a ford sticker on the radiator core support that says something about pcm reprogrammed in 98, can't make out all the info, and am trying to locate the mechanic/shop that did the work. thanks chuck

some of the early 95 still had eec 4 diagnostics , a reprogram may have been done to update te pcm to obd 2 diagnostics , that is probably the case with that , buzz test and cyl. contribution is where to start

thanks for the reply. scuffy 828 really helped me diagnose the problem. he wen t above and beyond to help a novice learn a few new diesel skills. it turned out to be a bad injector, which i replaced. its running good now, and have since also added the bhaf to enhance the 4 inch straight pipe. MAN,WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!!!!!!!!! thanks again for the reply
