My 1986 F150 5.0 EFI is hard to start when cold and bucks and jumps when warm, why?

Asked by Aug 22, 2014 at 05:09 PM about the 1986 Ford F-150 XL Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have replaced EGRw/solenoid, TPS sensor, IAT sensor, thermostat, plugs, distributor cap and rotor. Checked fuel pressure and was fine, but not while driving when bucking occurs. Starts fine once the truck has been started. Runs very rich, checked timing w/ spout disconnected. Any clues?
