    Ok, i still have this whine and i am now starting to think it has nothing to do with my fan clutch or my smog pump. I have done some reading and thinking and i think it could be a fuel issue or even a throttle body issue. Reason is this...yesterday on my way home i was going up a small hill...the truck had zero power no matter if my foot was on the accelerator or not. Just now power under load. I have also noticed a low muffled sound that sounds like it could be coming from the manifold. Would a leaky manifold cause a lack of power as well? Just trying to think of as many issues as possible.

    Thoughts? This friday i am doing a compression test, setting the timing and checking for leaks.

    Has anyone with a 3fe cleaned there throttle body or intake?

    Possible clogged cat? Is your kick down cable properly adjusted?when you romp on the gas it should down shift.

    I just got finished cleaning my intake on the 3fe. I have yet to clean the throttle body but will get there soon or later.

    Have you had someone look at it with you? I'm no expert, but sometimes 2 heads are better than 1. I'd be happy to look at it if you want to cruise over to Granbury sometime. PM me if interested.

    intake

    I am in the process of cleaning my entire intake down to the block. I have my injectors out as well and am just waiting for a few parts to come through to closer her up. Let me know if you have any questions. Also had my TB serviced and over-bored.
