Good evening my name is \*\*\*\*\* \*\*\*\*\* i'll be doing my best to help you this evening can you tell me have you done and diagnosis steps and do you have a check [engine](/topics-engine-ford/) light or codes?

No check engineI have put a fuel pump, fuel pump driver, plugs, maf, and a throttle body, all 4 o2 sensors, fuel pressure switch and fixed all vaccum leaksTruck has 113,450 milesHard to start will die at idle will smoke some when startedI did jump wire from positive battery to disconnect ground for like 10 minutes
Automotive Expert
Will it smoke while driving? what color smoke?

Did fuel filter and air filter
Automotive Expert
You did alot of work to this truck!

Not much smoke after a few seconds but have to go to about 2000 rpm to startNo ping or knockI also put new [exhaust](/topics-exhaust-ford/) gaskets and headers
Automotive Expert
Aftermarket headers? or oem? Performance headers could be throwing off the o2 sensors without a tune

OemOld ones had cracks
Automotive Expert
Have you done a fuel pressure test on the truck as yet?

a few weeks agoWhen it was running lean lol but found vaccum leak
Automotive Expert
All good to the rail and while driving?

Was then yes
Automotive Expert
How did you find out the truck was rich?

Smoke is kinda black and looking at info on scan tool says o2 is richhaving to keep foot on pedal to keep it running I just kinda deducted it
Automotive Expert
Checked the injectors to see if any stuck open?

If I pull the PCs line it will idle way upI have not checked injectorsWhat is best way to do so? With low miles and I use injectors cleaner at every oil changeAbout 1500 miles ago I used BG fuel cleaner, engine flush and moaUse synthetic oil and change every 5,000 milesIn my diesel trucks have had good luck doing so
Automotive Expert
i use the textron [fuel injector](/topics-fuel-injector-ford/) cleaner in my sierra and i had one fail at 60k and i always use 93 octane you can pull the injectors and take them to get cleaned and tested

Ok so what's best way to test or should I replace all

Automotive Expert

New standard ignition injectors are $38 each
Automotive Expert
Thats really not bad at the price i would replace them
