You may get better results if anyone knew where you were.

haha now NO OFFENSE but why would you think I'd lend out a $300 compression tester to a stranger on the internet? Second guess all you want, it isn't happening.

There are many members who would drive over and help you out if they were close enough but they won't just lend you high dollar equipment. I have driven 50 miles on a number of occasions to scan someones vehicle for free. I normally get a $100.00 for running a scan and all the selftests. But I don't lend any of my tools even to family either.

i understand that and i dont mind driving for help either .... just dont seem to be able to find anyone who i can trust on the 6.0 that isn't just shooting in the dark trying to fix it... im a very experienced diesel mechanic and have worked on big trucks and heavy equipment for almost 10 yrs and this 6.0 has me stumped
