Unless your very experienced with diesels, dont make my mistake. You should first check the 175-amp battery fuse. I'm capable of doing the work myself, but I honestly don't even have the money for parts. They said there were a few more, but couldn't get it to actively fault while driving. This engine was initially installed in 2001 and trucks, and has been an option since then in pickups, vans, and medium-duty trucks. They also usually don't do a bottle test. If the bottle test is negative, there is no need to shim it.
In highschool I worked on my 93 Silverado which I still own and came to know pretty well but that's pretty much my extent. The Problem: At idle the truck surges. You need to pull a vacuum hose off on top of the fuel filter the runs to the vacuum pump and check it for vacuum with the engine running. If you are an experienced mechanic or a 6. I've put about 600 miles on the truck since purchase. For what it's worth, I do plan to go over to the shop that did the injectors and see what they say. Recognizing that every individual's motoring journey is unique, we seek to give form to both untold as well as celebrated facets of the automotive world.
I got mine from You have to drop the pan to change it, the only hard part was getting the new plug to snap into the case. If the circuit test normal, replace the generator. I did change the fuel filter after I bought it, and ran a bottle of power service through it. If we feel a piece of advice is particularly reckless, dangerous, or extremely unhelpful it maybe removed If a post or comment is provided that is not a response to a question, the post may be removed. However, head gasket failures or other related concerns for that matter are no more frequent on the aluminum headed Duramax diesel than other competitor's cast iron headed engine. It just isn't very common. Supply side issue, either a plugged fuel filter, kinked line, drawing in air from somewhere, etc.
I may have guessed wrong on the weight loaded, truck was carrying a steel 50ft car hauler with 3 2700 pound sand cars and a 55 gallon drum of fuel. Without programming your vehicle will never start. . Those who demonstrate they cannot follow the rules will be warned and posts removed. Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!! I replaced the unit, and that warning has gone away.
Is the truck up to date on maintenance fluids, filters etc. Since exhaust gas is inert, it displaces oxygen and fuel, thereby lowering cylinder temps, which, in turn, lowers oxides of nitrogen emissions. But it will charge the battery. Searched around and haven't seen any info on it. To the alternator, it would be one of the wires that plug into the side of the alternator case.
What proof did the seller provide of the injector replacement? The most likely cause is the belt driven vacuum pump which is mounted below the belt tensioner. It is a 32-valve design with and an experimental composite design cylinder head. However, please observe rule 1 when asking for a second opinion. This means that you need to replace the harness as well as the injectors. Usually they make a knocking noise when bad. The lightweight and independent front suspension on these trucks makes obtaining 20-mpg a cinch and gives them better ride comfort than their solid front axle Ford and Dodge counterparts. In addition, high-mile versions are prone to popping head gaskets.
Rather than check the springs integrity, they are replaced with a new one. I was just told it did it one other time, when the truck was mistakenly ran on level 6 it through the code instantly. Second, is to cut the field wire close give yourself room to work to the alternator, add wire to it and ground it to the engine making sure the engine has a ground strap to the body. Best guess of what the cause? If the fault detection circuit senses a voltage other than what is expected, this P0621 code will set. Fuel leaked and entered the , causing oil dilution.
The only way to determine if this was happening was to measure the return fuel flow rate. This could also account for the setting of that code because of loss of field charge in the alternator. How about rail pressure data desired vs commanded, vs actual? How about rail pressure data desired vs commanded, vs actual? These are just some Possible Problems No Way In Depth. Please follow this diagnosis process thoroughly and complete each step. The fuel filter assembly and soft lines on the suction side have been very recently replaced.
If you are tempted to open the alt to have a look at the brushes, be careful as incorrect assembly can cause serious damage as can incorrect re-assembly. Sounds to me like one of them is stuck closed, not allowing coolant to pass through the engine. The damaged parts were replaced with new parts, and as such, remanufactured injectors are more expensive than refurbished. If it is, then the problem is likely intermittent. A version was used in the Iceni. Unless that valve is bad or the ports clogged. The leak offline is usually cleaned out thoroughly.
It's not smoking at all. Yes it would be the same issue. Two likes from the fuel filter housing, two rubber lines by the steering column and two lines near the transmission on the driver's side. May 21, 2015 Hey Joe , The first thing to do would be check for battery voltage on the heavier gage wire on the back of the alternator , if there is no voltage here there is a open circuit! Supply side issue, either a plugged fuel filter, kinked line, drawing in air from somewhere, etc. The charging system on your vehicle is computer controlled. Some mechanical aspects of the engine, such as piston oil flow design for improved temperature control and oil pump design, were also improved to enhance durability even further. This is driving me crazy.
