I didnt realize Orielley scanned them..
I will check into that. (the EGR)
The book did say that it might come on after a fill up or such, and if it didnt go off after 3 cold starts and uses, to get it checked. Of course this was burried DEEP in the book, and I only found it today.
It did go off today. I didnt have alot of cold starts. It only was set idle (not running) for 3 hours at a time, twice, once for an hour and once for 2 hours. But after the last 2 hour one, I started it, drove about 20 feet, and had to stop to talk to my grandfather. He is deaf as a post, so I turned it back off. after 10 minutes I started it up, and the dadgum light didnt come back on!
I am driving alot tomorrow, so I will see if it comes back on. BUT I will take your advice and see if my dear and darling hubby will check the EGR.
or maybe I will just pay someone to check it... LOL I didnt mind working on the 89, but this one scares me.
THanks y'all! I really appriciate it!
I dont want to have to deal with breakdowns with this one. Hubby made me buy it after my 89 had to have new fuel lines (leaking), a new starter, new alternator, and new batteries with in a 3 month time period. LOL He was tired of working on it and buying parts.
I bought it two years ago, with 35K miles on it, and its been a great truck. Other than the eating of tires..
(and with 6 on a 4X4 that gets REALLY expensive! LOL) But its a good looking truck, will pull what ever I want and is costing me an arm and a leg, so I reckon I will keep it
