First thing you need to do is put a code reader on it and post the codes it returns. It could be any of a variety of things causing it... would need the codes to narrow it down.

Clean the EGR valve, and the cross- overs to the intake. clean em good too, this is the #1 check engine code on F150's.


Do not buy a new EGR, they are built to last ( kid you not)

You can also pull the TPS, ISC, and shoot some (mass air cleaner) down there as well, they both have small openings that Carbon up!

Good Luck!

Codes are for Girls who never ever raced or got stuck in the river bottoms at 2 a.m. ( no offense ken,)
