I see from your other post on the topic that you may be wanting to condemn the EGR valve since unplugging it had no effect on the way the engine is running.

I'd caution you that all that really...

An EGR valve that is not closing completely will have the symptoms of a vacuum leak since that's what it is. I don't recall if the valve is actuated by vacuum or if it's electrically actuated on the...

What year is your F250? I can likely check the service manual to see if the resistor values in the MFS are the same. If not, trying it in place of the existing will not be a good test.

It seems most likely that the issue is either a damaged wire, such as you suggested, or an issue with the Multi-Function Switch (MFS). The MFS is not too bad to replace with rather common hand...

Since the cruise control works even when the speedometer doesn't (or at least that's how I interpreted your comments), the issue is likely in the instrument cluster itself rather than with the speed...

Do you have a way to confirm whether or not the ports actually have power? Maybe the fuse in whatever she is trying to plug in is blown. Those often have a fuse either in the side of the plug or...

Since you could hear hissing that bad PCV hose is likely more of a vacuum leak rather than just collapsed. As a leak you probably don't need to worry about it causing pressure build up, but as a...

Do you have an in-series spark tester that you could use to confirm you're getting spark to cylinder 4? Since you smell fuel in the exhaust I wouldn't focus yet on confirming you have injector...

Other than the added cost, there certainly would be no harm in having another set of eyes and ears on the truck. Noises are typically much easier to diagnose in person versus over the Internet.

If creating a vacuum leak by removing that (PCV?) tube does not change the way the engine runs, that suggests to me that there is already a vacuum leak somewhere after the MAF sensor. It could be...

I second the transmission fluid approach. I've done this to dissolve sludge in engines and it works very effectively.

Thank you for following up on what you found!

Removing the shim may prove to be a somewhat temporary fix though as that would suggest the magnetic field is no longer sufficient to keep the...

Awesome, glad to hear it appears to be fixed. The ECT sensor also has quite an effect on air/fuel ratio (which is why I thought it might be a flooded condition). You'll probably notice better fuel...

Did you try the "Clear Flood" mode by holding the accelerator all the way to the floor to shut off the fuel injectors?
