All in all, I love this truck. Check the Web for Mac tools, Snap-on, and so forth. I bought the truck with 102k on it, it now has 124k. Have done other timing jobs in past with no trouble so I was not too afraid to tackle this one. The truck lost all power the other day driving and barely made it to work. On the ride home it was still running horribly, like it just fell on its face. The spark plugs have been inspected and are within an acceptable range.
I jump started a co-workers car and he hooked the cables up backwards on his car. They did the tune up. From what I am guessing, I think it is either a spark plur or a coil over pack, Truck has about 56K on it. Look for some other potential problem or trust the dealer? In fact i got stuck in the snow the other day and it could barely break the tires loose to try and get it out almost put in 4low cause i didn't want to hurt the trans. I pulled sensor one out of bank one really a joyously tight squeeze in there hooked up my gauge and got 0 back pressure.
I will tell you what your Codes mean. I even second guessed my pressure gauge and unhooked exhaust manifold from pipe and it sounds even prettier when it backfires out of there but no change. Upon warming up it ran rough at idle and stalled just like it did before. A week and a half ago I went out to my truck to go somewhere and I got about 2 blocks away and the truck started running really rough and had a big lack of power, so I turned around and scanned it with my code reader and the codes I got were p2271, p2196, p0303, p0012, p2197, and p2272. The ride home was challenging.
One side is overadvanced and the other is retarded. Would a coil act like that? Code p0316 is a general misfire when starting up, and finally the p2198 is a rich condition O2 sensor on bank2 sensor 1. So I Google the b1360 code and there's very little on it. I monitored with oreillys crappy scan tool and the miss only happens at idle. It only does it once in a while. All of these make sense when the Cam on bank 1 is over advanced you will run lean and the Cam on bank 2 is retarded, you will run rich. I took it to a local guy he says replacing the cam phasers might fix it.
After driving the truck, it started to get a rough idle at low speeds, primarily in reverse. After a couple days of light driving, got a misfire on 3. When the truck goes into a rough idle. Changed the oil with motorcraft filter and 5w-20 twice after the work had been done, thinking it might need it. Hope helps remember to rate and comment this. What's the consensus, should I try the cam phasers? It could be the Camshaft Position Actuator on Bank 1 or Computer and even Wiring Related. Took it to the dealer and was told I needed plugs and I was 5qts low on oil! Basically says open circuit ignition.
Double and triple checked my timing chains and it was spot on. Recently While on a trip I experienced rough idle and stalling at idle. The truck has 148000 Miles on it and the plugs were replaced at approx 120000 by the dealer. Always had a bit of a rough idle but now it's worse. I was reading a previous one on the how tos and assumed later models would be the same since it was the same sensor.
There are no trouble codes of any kind. In the morning, when the outside temp is between 30-50, the engine starts and runs fine. . The throttle body has been cleaned. Was kind of thinking about the Variable Timing solenoid. Since it has all new parts and they all ran beautifully till now.
It now idles pretty rough. It seems to be happening more frequently, the more I drive it. I have run several gas system cleaners through the truck. There is also a light gas smell, only smells near the rear of the truck. Does anyone have any insight on the codes P0012 and P0022? Hope this helps and have an awesome day Craig! However at idle the truck is a bit rough.
