What does this part do?
Sorry if this is a stupid question but my service advisor did not give me a good understanding of what this part does.
Part # is 8c3z-9275-Q "Sender"
The dealer left me the truck out to pick-up after they closed this evening but when I spoke to my advisor, he wasn't sure what the part controls.
After looking at my paperwork, the only thing I see is that they got a code P2291.
The truck is a 2010 and has 12,000 miles all stock except for a dpf back exhaust. Truck has been running fine and getting great mileage. Friday evening it was on the highway for about a 90 mile round trip and ran 100%!
Saturday morning I went out and drove the truck for about 20 minutes (about 8 miles) Shut the truck off when I arrived at my destination and it stayed off for about 15 minutes. I re-started the truck and it started fine. I put the truck into reverse and backed up about 6-10 feet before the truck shut off. My wrench light and oil light came on.
I checked the oil and all was fine. (Truck is running Rotella 5w40 and has about 5500 miles on it.) Attempted to start the engine and after 3 seconds, it didn't catch so I knew better then to keep trying.
Any help on what this part does would be great! I'm gonna go back to the dealer tomorrow if I get the chance before they close and try to talk to the tech who did the work. Thanks in advance for any input on this situation.
