86 f-150 efi 302 surges...rolling idle.etc...
my 86 ... fuel pressure regulator change??
the f 150 in the signature with an efi 302...
i see it on the fuel rail but i dont know what holds it in place yet or what or how to remove it.
there seems to be screws that go in from the bottom but i hope that those are not for my removing because i hate working with any screw where you cant see the head of it ...
itll cost me 24$ for a new 1 and i think this is my problem..my truck lately has been just out of nowhere surging like if i am at a stop sign with my foot on the brake it may just up and revv and want to take off...and at times the idle will i guess one would say roll...i havent checked with a vaccum guage but i dont think i have any vaccum line problems but that doesnt mean it is not a gasket...a lil insight would be greatly appreciated..
.and also just for the info just yesterday my fuel pump relay decided it wanted to crap out. im just leaving my sisters house i drive maybe 1 block ,turn and poof my truck stalls and the relay is just clicking up a storm and after that the truck wouldnt start.i ended up cranking the engine and shaking the relay(that i had hanging from below the dash)and as luck would have it it started b4 i killed my battery.drove to the parts store that luckily enough didnt close for another 45 mins and bought a new 1 ...and then later that night i went to get gas,backed out of my driveway POOF it stalls again the relay(new 1 )clicks maybe 1nce or twice and the truck starts right back up and it hasnt happened since then.
p.s.another recent development is when i have the heat on the temp guage gets kind of high on the temp...does this indicate heater core problems???
