Question about 1984 Ford F 350
Hello! lets check the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) and the Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS) in that order...if you have a multimeter and a wee bit of experience using one both of these sensors can be tested...If not replace the MAP first and the TPS second...
The MAP has a three wire connector with wire colors Orange/White...Blue/Light Green...And Black./White...using two safety pins push one into the rear of the in-place connector into the Blue/Light Green...The other into the Black/White...connect the + probe of the meter set to read 5 volts on to the Blue/Light Green pin...the - probe to the Black/White pin...turn key to on...Meter must read at least 3 volts...If not MAP is defective...
Using the same technique lets test the TPS...Three wire connector Green/Light Green...Orange/White and Black/White...Safety pins into Green/Light Green and Blue/White...Set meter to read 5 volts...Place + probe of meter on Green/Light Green pin...And - probe on Black/White...start the engine...at idle meter must read less than 1 volt (.85)...slowly increase the idle (as best you can)...Meter should rise smoothly to 4 volts...If it skips, jumps or acts erratic the TPS is defective...See pictures below...Guru...saailer
