Re: xf injected motor problems

Check the coolant temp sender, make sure the engine oil dip stick is pushed all the way in, check oil cap is tight and has a good seal, check egr is not leaking, check breather hose from inlet manifold to rocker cover (it's on top and easy to find) these are the most common things that cause rough idle and stalling when engine is warm.

Hope this helps.

Re: xf injected motor problems

and check rocker cover gasket not leaking.. my bolts used to come loose and it would start to leak and run like a pig!
