  1. You are probably right, but it only takes a few minutes to find out for sure. From what I was reading, some of the engines were originally fitted for AFM, but those parts were removed and the system was disabled in the factory, maybe the screens were left in? Not sure why they fitted them and then removed them. Anyway, I think it would be worth having a look, especially since he has been removing the oils sender anyway.
  2. The screens started in 2007 on the 5.3's, but I think its still worth checking your engine.
  3. If you do have the screen, it would be directly below the oil pressure sending unit. It can be removed with a bent coat hanger, or a small hook/pick. They seem to some out easier after your spin then around a couple times.
  4. If you disconnected the map sensor, it would still run - and it would throw a code. If yours is a late model 2006, its possible you might have the screen. Probably not, but its worth having a look: https://noln.net/2017/05/31/low-oil-pressure-message-locating-mystery-filter/
  5. A new way to clean the engine bay.

  6. I guess if its that much of a problem for you, you could have them tack welded. Maybe $30 at a local weld shop.
  7. If that was my rig and I was fixing problems that it had, this is how I would feel when the wiring got sucked into the drive line:
  8. Ball joint question

    Here is how I did mine: (about $125 total cost) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01JJUY44O/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.ebay.com/itm/5pcs-Front-End-Service-Ball-Joint-Separator-Pitman-Arm-Tie-Rod-Puller-Tool-Kit/201675023431?epid=942965136&hash=item2ef4c4a447:g:XioAAOSwPCVX5WAO
  9. Dual Exhaust Kit Question

    Disconnect parts of the exhaust starting with the muffler and keep moving up the exhaust until you get the sound you want, and then install this kit at that spot. Set it for the default to be open. When your up to speed or on the freeway, flip the switch and your exhaust goes back to full stock to eliminate the drone. https://www.amazon.com/BLACKHORSE-RACING-Electric-Exhaust-Downpipe-Controller/dp/B07DLQ3QGJ/ref=sr_1_17?ie=UTF8&qid=1535984553&sr=8-17&keywords=electric+cutout
  10. List it for $10,000 and drop the price by $100 per day till it sells.
  11. Seattle / Tacoma The reason the value is low, is because there are a million of them. Try selling sand on the beach, same result.
  12. $5,000 truck? If that's the case, you guys shoul hire a car hauler to pick up vehicles in this area. I will sell you the vehicles for $1,000 and you sell them for $5,000. Vehicles are not worth anything in my area. Either that, or you are way over estimating the value of that rig for your area. Have you checked Craigslist to establish that value? Did you check blue book values? In my area, that rig is not worth much. Maybe in other areas its worth more.
  13. I don't know what life is like in TX, but in my area, a rig like that would be scrapped if the transmission failed. The scrap value would be $40 or maybe $60. I buy / sell / scrap rigs all the time. So do my friends.
  14. I sold my '89 for $250. I sold my '92 for $1500. I would say your value is between $1200 and $1800.
