1995 Ford F-150. Engine Size : 5.0 V8.

Question: cuts out and or backfires through the intake at different speeds coasting or pushing the pedal to the floor corrects for a short time.

 

 

Answer: Well, cutting out and backfiring are two totally different things. If the engine is just basically running bad and backfiring through the intake manifold, this is either an ignition problem like arching spark plug wires, cap and rotor or bad spark plugs, or a valve-train problem. Worn cam shaft lobes or valve spring problems will usually cause a backfire through the intake. But coasting or pushing the gas to the floor to correct it would not make sensor for any of the above. Ignition problems get worse during acceleration and valvetrain problems would do it all the time, no mater what. You could have a sticking EGR valve, oil or coolant fouling a spark plug, a bad throttle sensor or any number of things. Going to have to get this checked out by a mechanic.

    How Things Work

    Vehicle Front Suspension Operation

    The front suspension has 2 primary purposes:

    Isolate the driver from irregularities in the road surface.
    Define the ride and handling characteristics of the vehicle.

    The front suspension absorbs the impact of the tires travelling over irregular road surfaces and dissipates this energy throughout the suspension system. This process isolates the vehicle occupants from the road surface.

    Oxygen Sensor Code P0130 - P0141

    The powertrain control module (PCM) supplies a bias voltage of about 450 mV between the heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) high signal circuit and the HO2S low reference circuit. When measured with a 10 mega ohm digital voltmeter, this may display as low as 350 mV. The oxygen sensor signal varies from about 800 mV when the exhaust is rich, to about 50 mV when the exhaust is lean.
