1993 Ford F-350 460 V-8 Problem

Hello all, this is my first post on this forum. I am looking for feedback on a problem that I am having with my truck.
When I first start the truck, it runs perfectly fine. But after 30 minutes or more of driving, when it heats up, it starts to run way too rich and has problems idling. I have replaced the oxygen sensor, air filter, spark plugs, wires and distributor cap; but to no avail. Does anyone know if I have computer problems or something? Thanks.

Does it run okay when you hold the throttle a little and only has the problem idling?

There could be a problem with the MAP sensor or vacuum line to it. See if it stalls when you disconnect the MAP sensor hose momentarily. Also, it help to see what the fuel pressure is.

Yes, it runs fine when I hold the throttle just a bit. And what's the MAP sensor and where is it at? And what vacuum line are you talking about? Also, I forgot to mention that the check engine light comes on at the same time the engine begins to run poorly.

Here's what it looks like. Check the vacuum lines to it and all of the others on the engine. The PCV hoses too.

I'd check the fuel pressure too. The fuel pressure regulator could be bad causing it to run rich. Here's a Ranger sirte that explains how to get trouble codes. It works the same way on yours. See what codes you can pull. Ford Ranger/Bronco II EEC-IV Testing

Thank you for the suggestion, I'll try this method soon. And check the MAP sensor now that I know what it looks like.

I was thinking, and I also have this question to ask. Could a dirty throttle body be causing all of this?

A dirty throttle body can cause problems. Cleaning it would be a good idea. Have you checked the other items?
