You flushed your power steering pump and it affected the brake pedal?

Greased the front steering locations. Lubed the drivers window. Removed an old phone system that was in the truck.
tomorrow: going to look at the rear door switch
Saturday: going to get the windows tinted.

actually you have 3 or so pushes of the pedal left, that what the small canister is on the hydroboost its a reserve

And it is pretty much the same for gas trucks with vacuum boosters. If the motor quits running you only have a couple pumps till the vacuum is gone.

I don't mind the hydro boost. at least it eliminates the belt driven vacuum pump that used to be on older diesels. I am surprised ford still uses a vacuum pump for heater controls. Just do away with all that and use stepper motors like everyone else.

Well, in the past week I've had a lot of things done..
2 COP's changed
Plugs and boots changed
Oil Changed
Oil Filter, Fuel Filter changed, Air Filter changed
And, to hopefully end the week of things failing...last night the Alternator crapped out, so this morning I ended up changing it out. All is well, things are good in the hood again.

I replaced the rear brake calipers, rotors and pads, Used Napa calipers (and caliper brackets), Autozone Rotors, and Hawk pads. I also flushed the system. She stops WAY better now. I also fixed the door ajar switch in the back liftgate. It was much easier than expected. Then I took apart and lubed the front autolocking hubs. Next weekend or the weekend after I will attempt the front brakes.

Today my truck mind ****ed me....

For last few months, injector #1 started having issues where it seemed mechanically the injector was done. I ran some Rotella T6 and it seemed to fix it, but thought I would pull the valve covers anyhow.

Well...

I pulled both covers checked the harness and connectors, unplugged the harness while the truck was running to verify, and everything checks out. I put the truck back together take it for a drive and then the same problem happens again...

I planned on changing the injector, but decided against it since it decided to run better and get better mileage. Now I'm kicking myself wishing I would've just changed the inejctor and just let that be that. Electronically it's fine and passes a buzz test when it wanted to, but mechanically it can't decide whether it wants to work or not...it's getting changed for sure next weekend.
