Well where do I start, the truck is a 2010, has 44K bought October 09. Since I bought it I had a warranty claim for the brakes, and just recently for the steering linkage, track bar, and ball joints. Now things are getting interesting.
Yesterday, I was out driving around at work, heading to a customers house, I stopped at a red light, when it turned green I hit the gas and the truck was like a snail, no power
, WTH, the tach is hitting 3000, the speedo is barely hitting 30 and the turbo was reading 0psi. It stayed like that for about 5 mins, and then as suddenly as it came on, turbo kicked in, trans shifted, and it was the same truck as it usually is. Now the whole time that was happening, no codes and now lights in the cluster. I took the truck to my buddy, he scanned it, came up clear
, so I'm back to square one. Drove rest of the day and back home, no problems.
Today it got real interesting. So I was heading out to Boston, to see my GF, and as soon as I get over into MA, I start to have issues, going up a decent grade, it started to do what it was doing yesterday, NO POWER
, 0psi on turbo, and my speed is dropping and rpm's climbing cause I have the pedal to the floor. I had my hazards on, and my strobes, just crawling to the top of the F...ing grade. I pulled over sat for avout 15 mins, and I thought maybe the Turbos are overheating and shutting down to prevent a failure. Because truck strarted ti drive again after the wait. (At this point I should've turned around and headed for home
) But alas I continued on. Now I'm having major issues accelerating to pass someone. Running at 70, I try to pass, have the pedal mashed and the RPMs are at 3K and the needle is just creeping past 70, then at 75 or 76 the truck finally shifts. At this point I decided it would be best to head home. I turned around, kept having more and more shifting problems
, then I came to a long hard grade.
Half a mile from the top, turbo psi starts to drop off, the more I push the pedal the faster the speed drops, I am able to limp to the top of the hill at 10MPH into a service plaza, and call AAA. I was F...ING LIVID!
I am about at my wits end with this truck, havent even had it for a year yet, and thinking about giving ti back to the dealer. I just got home after a 3 1/2 hr ride home in the wrecker, and I'm gonna have to call for another tow on monday to get it to the dealer. And I know they're gonna have to take the cab off, I am just so PISSED OFF right now!
