I pulled a p1152 code out of the truck's computer, I have a 1997 f-250 5.4 ltr that is dedicated cng...no gasoline. It has a 4 speed automatic.
Anyway I was driving on the freeway when the engine light popped on and I noticed a slight skip here and there. When I left a store parking lot and turned the corner the truck started to sputter and then just quit like I had turn the ignition off.
Now I bench tested the two o2 sensors using a small flame from a blow torch to measure if I had a changing electical value that ranges from 0.1 to 0.9 and they seem to react fine so I cleaned them up and popped them back in. I know that the p1152 is not an exact pin point cause for the problem. I grabbed a can of starting fluid and rigged up a vacuum hose tied into the intake manifold and sprayed as I cranked the engine, it started right up and ran fine until I ran out of fluid. I tried to start it back up less the fluid but it will not start so I feel it may be a fuel regulator problem? I know I have pressure 3000 psi going into the regulator because I opened the drain valve on the filter housing which goes right into the regulator and it has plenty of blasting pressure so I am sure that is good.
I have checked for vacuum leaks, pcv valve, dipstick seating etc...
Anyone have an idea about what the problem is I would like to hear it, thanks ahead of time.
