Out of the Blue

We got our promised winter storm, but it's not so bad in these parts. The warmth and rain followed the snow, as forecast, so it's messy out there, but it seems like it should mostly clear up on its own. This may result in ice as the cold returns though, so we'll have to be careful with that. That'll be easy enough for me, as I plan on staying in and watching the NFL conference championship games. Both of them seem like incredible matchups on paper, and I'm anticipating exciting games.

1. Pull out the garage laptop, plug in the OBD2 connector, and check to see if there are any codes. The CEL is not illuminated on the dash but it never hurts to see what the PCM is reporting while driving.
2. Replace the fuel filter.
3. Buy some CRC Mass Air Flow Sensor Cleaner and clean the shit out of the MAF.
4. Buy some throttle body cleaner and clean the throttle body.

I'll report back, if anyone is interested.
Wow. Congrats on being the car guy. I feel good when I check my tire pressure.

Try cleaning the throttle body. The other thing is that it may be going into fuel saver mode if you're cruising along at highway speeds. My 2010 Raptor will take a second if I'm cruising along and just stab the gas, nature of computer controlled vehicles.
Well there's gonna be a Delay, as the Raptors were built with really slow processors by today's standards.

So the problem I am experiencing is this:

I've swapped in a new air filter, just swapped the plugs, and I am going to replace the fuel filter tomorrow.
8 yo truck has 8 yo sensors and computers.
I bet if it was hooked up to a computer it'd throw a code (hopefully).
Throttle body sensor, camshaft position sensor, ignition coils, mass air flow sensor or any of the other sensors; check for chafed wiring running to the sensors .
You've probably already read these.

If I run into any of the mechanics I do computer work for I'll run it by them.

Rams got lucky there with that missed call, eh? Well I'm glad they made it. Hope the Chiefs can pull it off.

I picked the Rams and the Patriots to be in the Superbowl. I was hoping to be wrong on both counts. Go Chiefs!

And yes, the Saints got jobbed.

Truck accelerates fine from a dead start, problems doesn't occur until she's rolling. If I have my foot in the gas about mid-way, acceleration seems to lag, catch itself and accelerate properly, and then lags again. Under WOT, she doesn't do this. Were it a slipping trans, I would expect it to do it more under WOT because of the greater load.

I've swapped in a new air filter, just swapped the plugs, and I am going to replace the fuel filter tomorrow.


Clogged dirty fuel line or fuel injectors? Dirty engine? Maybe grab a bottle of good fuel injector cleaner and give it a whirl? After using it it's always best to take it out on the highway or somewhere you can open it up and just floor it a few times for shorts bursts - going through at least the first 4 gears - to blow out the carbon.

I'm not a mechanic but i drove past a Holiday Inn once. You can't leave us hanging on what problem you're experiencing.

people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.

Well it's -15C atm and we got almost a foot of snow yesterday. Just spent over an hour cleaning it all up. Love Toro electric snow shovel. Just makes moving that white bullshit so much easier.

Man, I wish they made cars like that - that I could afford.

That jet suit looks pretty cool but completely impractical and awkward.
