    Broken 4x4 Symptoms

    Your supposed to have it in neutral before shifting from 4H to 4L. Same with going from 4L to 4H.Going from 2H to 4H isnt a problem in gear. You can do it even while moving in gear if your going slow enough. But not usually recommended since there is the potential for damage while parts are...

    My poor truck

    Thats actually what i been doing. When its cold #3 doesnt tick. When its warmed up it does.Heard about that warming injector programing. Everything ive heard on it as well sounded like it never did what they wanted it to. But never heard the specifics on it till now.

    How not to replace you wheel bearing.

    Lol i can believe the tire part there. "Theres still plenty of tread on the rest of the tire. I dont need them. Dont try to sell me new tires. These are still good"

    My poor truck

    Just curious. Is that a normal ipr reading for idle?? Was hard to start today but thinking that was because its still got trapped air since i havent driven it anywhere yet. When i let it idle up to operating temp the icp dropped down to 580 at idle. Never went below that though. From what i...

    Maybe was on a trail when it happened and "had to get it home" somehow.

    My poor truck

    Ive had one before where that micro bolt on the coils snapped. Small bit ended up caught in the freeze plug. The other half of the bolt ended up pinned against the rocker so it didnt come out.I thought about buying another since its the only one on that side that hasnt been replaced yet...

    1997 F-350 No Start Condition, Code 542 (Fuel Pump/ECM Related)

    You know whats strange. When i got my truck i found the same thing. Many of the fuses were swapped for larger amperage ones. I ended up going through the box with the owners manual and replacing a good many of them with the proper amperage.What caused me to look to beginwith was when i...

    For me when i got tired of the forums it was because i kept seeing the ppl on the forums doing what id like to be able to do and get depressed because i couldnt for one reason our another. So i would quit getting on to get my head right again.

    Been trying. I sleep solidly for 1.5-2 hrs. Then i wake up for no reason. I end up fighting for 30-45 mins to get back to sleep. Only to sleep for maybe another 15-20 mins to start the fight all over again.

    My poor truck

    Ironically they are. I have the newer style icp sensor in my truck because the old style icp sensor kept splitting. (Had 3 go in 2 years. Was tired of changing it) Its a common update for truck owners to do. No one can figure out why they keep splitting on the early builds when they never did...

    My poor truck

    Is there a way to command the IPR closed through the IDS software?? Heard to do pressure tests you had to either with a scantool or another tool that plugged right into the ipr itself.
