I did the dash ground fix but that didn't solve the issue for me. Its most likely the body ground posted above. What i did was i bought a 5ft section of battery cable with the crimped ends from Auto Zone and ran that from the negative battery terminal across the firewall to the ground screw next to the brake booster. This basically gives you another body ground and the issue hasn't reoccurred in well over 6 months and counting. Clean the body ground and put another ground like i did to be sure. My truck once shut off on the highway evening traffic going 60 with my 2yr old in the back. That was not fun trying to coast to the side with no steering or power or tail and headlights!! Got lucky
Looks like he got all 8 new injectors so maybe it was already good to go. He does leave out few things like depresurizing the fuel system which is important. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
Saw this on YouTube and thought I would share since this is a common issue on these trucks and this video is very well made. After watching this, I believe I can do this in the garage vs taking mine to a shop. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
You definitely got a good deal sounds like, so no worries for many many years. Sporadic sticking valve could have been fixed perhaps with valve cleaning DIY but not a guarantee. Enjoy the new truck!
There are companies that rebuild starters, locally to me you can have one rebuilt in few hours once you drop it off. See if thats an option, you can remove it yourself (if possible) and be moving again later that day.
Nahh not worth the drive. Search ebay for used ones or just get a new one. I ran mine with stock air box and filter for a bit and didnt know any difference, just a tad bit sound thats all. Then i put in a K&N filter inside the stock box and i can def notice it more now. It growls alot more.
Update on my issue: The day i did the compression test i also swapped out the #1 and #3 spark plugs and wires and while i was there i installed one of the old but still good coils into #1. Even though all 8 coils are new i figured why now. Its been 4 days and no issues so maybe it was the coil acting up? The scanner showed they were all working fine so not sure. I also have been running seafoam gas treatment 2 bottles in 1/4 tank till almost empty so the concentration is higher. Maybe that helped the injector? Lots of maybes here but day 4 and no issues, will report back if it acts up again. I'd like to know what @kevin wright reports back with his identical issue.
Yes it was for me. The battery life is like 3 years, crazy! Hopefully your wiring isnt drawing any power while the truck is parked overnight.
39-42 in the morning is a no jacket day for us on the north east lol Mine never does that and we get way colder
Something to keep in mind when googling any issues.. Nobody goes on and writes in the forums Hey my truck is awesome, no noises or issues, running perfect.... Most of your search results will bring back issues others have looked/posted for. Im sure you're fine, just drive it. You have warranty so... You good
