Overheating and raw gas being pumped into exhaust
I can run my truck for a while and it will overheat. I thought it
was the O2 sensor or the fuel pressure regulator, so I
replaced them both. I seen the exhaust was rusted, had that
replaced. The cylinders may be miss firing, so I'm changing
them. Could this be the reason for over heating and raw fuel
being dumped into the exhaust.
Yes, misfires won't burn the fuel properly and dump it into the cats, ruling them. At some point they will start clogging and glowing red. Your CEL will be on if there are misfires. So scan for the codes to find which cylinder is the issue. Change the plugs and wires if you haven't yet.
The cylinders may be miss-firing so you are going to replace them? Don't you mean spark plugs. Have it scanned for trouble codes at any local auto parts store and determine where and in what system the issue is. The do a proper diagnosis and don't throw parts at it.
I replaced all spark plugs and hoses yesterday. I'm waiting for another code test. I also replaced the vacuum hoses.
Ok, let us know what you come up with.
What's going on folks. OK so as an update... The truck is back to running! It so happens thar the vacuum hose was corroded and had a hole, so that was the issue to take care of. In any event all the parts I dumped into it, is now something that I don't need to worry about for a while. I'm also going to look for a newer engine with less miles on it. Yet another project to look forward to. Thanks for the input fellas!
