Bought this truck from dealer with 221K on it, have 2 other F-150's but with in-line 6's that have over 300K on them. This is my first experience with a V-6.
Truck ran fine on initial drive out, then began a slight miss @ idle.
Gas consumption escalated very much!! Put on computer. Shows bad EGR valve & a miss on 2 cylinders. Exp. Mechanic bud says there's a sensor on exhaust to check the EGR valve & most of the time the EGR is OK but the sensor leads have burned away.
Anybody have any knowledge? Could this be causing the miss & poor mileage? Need to do a compression check, one guy says a cracked head, but no oil in water or water in oil, nor steam out back.
Do not have print out of codes from shop, but may can get.
Any Help on where to begin would be appreciated.
