Sorry VROD, I haven't taken off the valve covers at this point, so I'm not sure what that measurement is, though I'm curious what you'd want it for.

I'm starting to doubt my problem is the UVCH, so I'm starting a new thread here: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/13...l#post14585477. If I find out it was the UVCH after all, I'll post back here.

Uh? I have an old UVCH in my "box of shame". Do you need a measurement from that?

My intermittent, but worse when hot problem turned out to be cylinder 6 injector wire shorting to valve cover where wires exit 42-pin connector and tend to rub against valve cover. IDM code was P0276. Details in this thread: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/13...l#post14586703.

Hi! great thread! My engine started running rough, I check ohms like was suggested, I had no resistance on #3 on drivers side, so took apart, but my problem was the clip that holds the lead on the injector it self came lose, don't know how that happened, but it did. Put it back together and now purrs like a kitten! hope this helps someone else! Thanks guys!

So I just pulled my drivers side valve cover tonight and my connection was loose so I did the 50 cent mod and put everything back together and cranked it up and everything was good except now my HPOP press gauge isn't reading anything at all?? Also it sounds like my afe intake now has more of a rumble to it alsmost like I can hear inside the motor from my air filter. I don't remember it sounding like this before. Any ideas?

Maybe you missed the CCV hose... it's been known to happen (unless I'm the only one)
