I bought the truck not running because of "a bad pcm". I got an eBay one that worked fine though it didn't seem to plug in correctly. Can I reflash them or get them repaired? They aren't cheap!

i have a hard time believe that the truck is eating PCMs i would clean the connection, and possibly pull the the wiring block apart and make sure there are no bare, broken, or chafed wires. Then find a known good PCM that will work and try it.

yes you can get the PCM reflashed but only if they are good.

around here PCMs bring ~$100-150 a piece for a working one, cali specific PCms bring more

Looks like it may be the ground to the pcm. Cleaned it and it's running way better


I am going to change the fuel lines from the bowl. Any tips?

hopefully you're good to go.

tips .... it's pretty straight forward. while the bowl is out you can clean it and the fpr screen.
