I am following the advice in the "excessive cranking" article, I am renting a fuel pressure tool from autozone tomorrow.
The truck runs fine otherwise. It does not have much power, but it never did. It is a bucket truck and carries alot of weight.
The longer it has been sitting the longer it takes to start up. It seems to crank fine.
Once when I was cranking it longer then normal due to frustration it threw up codes p0171 and p0174 but just that one time.
I will post again after I get the fuel pressure results.
I have been riding around with the doghouse off, I have not smelled any leaking gas and have not found any vacuum leaks. There don't seem to be many vacuum hoses. I guess there is vacuum under the upper manifold. Im hoping it isnt the fuel pressure regulator, looks like a pain to replace.
Great site, thanks for all the articles. I've learned alot from reading the questions also.
have the same problem?
