Bobaloo22 started following Hey guys, I am leaving the forum. I’ve been diagnosed with terminal cancer., Transmission Temps - how hot is too hot?, Leaf Spring Noise and and 2 others
I did the "flip the pill" mod a few weeks back and my temps dropped to about 146* average on a 90* day with the AC on. It is very simple to do and you can reverse it back if you want to but I bet you will love the low temps and wish you had done it sooner.
I had my springs replaced under warranty but it didn't last a year before the sounds were back just as bad as before. Not sure if this matters but painted in big yellow letters "made in Mexico ".
No, we had a family medical issue so I cancelled my appointment. I had the install set up at a shop in Raleigh, NC. I really didn't check out the Fredericksburg area too much. It seemed most shops concentrated on big lifts and such. If you do find someone let me know, if I keep my truck I might still do it. By the way I had ordered a Diablo tune and couldn't cancel, so I installed it and got a custom Lew tune for towing and it is sooooo much better all the time, also dropped AFM as well.
How do you think I should proceed. Do you think it's a bad plug, coil or injector or a combo? Call the dealer and schedule I've got 59k so not sure if drivetrain or my extended warranty will cover the charges. I forgot to add, when I punched it last night it did it again, it happens when the rpms are at about 5k never any other time and it feels like a short lag when I hit it. Thanks for the info
I did the "Pill swap" thermostat modification 2 weeks ago and I went from 190 all the time to 145, even in this 95 degree heat. I did see it rise to 175 sitting in traffic but it only lasted for about 2 minutes. I still haven't pulled my travel trailer yet but I expect temps to stay well under 190.
I checked the code this weekend, it was a CO307. Number 7 misfire, only one code. This is the one and only time this has done this so I hope it was just this crappy tank of gas.
Oil level fine and clean. I’m at work but will check to see if any codes thrown when I get home. It’s just weird AND scary that it was so few flashes. I’ll let y’all know if there’s any codes. Thanks
I passed a car this morning, (went around) so I gunned it while I had the chance. Afterward I looked down and saw engine light flashing, scared the crap out of me but before I could do anything it stopped. Any ideas? Thanks! Bob
So sorry to hear, prayers for you and your family.
Here's a related issue here in Virginia. My trans temp has not been over 150 degrees since last September, so no flow to cooler. I have done two drain and fills during this time and I just realized that all of the fluid in the cooler and lines have sat there all of these months and not mixed with the fluid in the trans and torque converter. Eliminating the t stat will allow the fluid to "mix" during cold weather and has got to be better for the tranny. Also no shifting issues at all for the last 5 months, so why do these trans "need" to be so hot when they cannot get there in the winter. Bob
