No engine sound on decel

Hi guys, I am just curious as to why sometimes when it's time to start slowing down, and I let off the pedal, the engine goes quiet for a second or two. Then, you hear the "diesel" sound again, just before stopping. I just installed a new cam sensor (IHC#1876736C91), which from the research I did, was supposed to be the best one. And, the results after installing it are great, it sounds a little more quiet, it idles a bit smoother-no more slight romping. And, of course it does'nt stall any more, which was the main reason I changed it. But, I kind of notice that it does that "no sound" thing during decel a little more. Don't get me wrong, the truck is running great, just wondering why it does that. Thanks

lulz thats the injector pump shutting down and the fuel-injectors not firing and saving fuel It's also a built-in engine decelerator; when you let off the throttle the truck automatically utilizes the motor/trans to slow down.

That's perfectly normal. I've had mine go silent for minutes a time when I'm descending dirt roads in the mountains and lose a lot if altitude in a few miles.

That's awesome! Just a little curious, I thought the 94-97 trucks did'nt have injector pumps.

Thanks, I read up on the HEUI injection system. Cool stuff, you got oil and fuel going into different chambers of the injector. Anyway, I guess that is the couple of seconds you get to feel like your in one of those new electric cars that don't make sound. We'd better watch out or they are gonna force us to add a fake sound, like they are trying to do with the electric cars. hehe

HEU injection is extremely interesting stuff. Caterpillar actually designed it. It's not the best system for crazy power, but it's extremely reliable.

heck yea it is!
I like the fact that you cant run out motor out of oil and seize it up because it will stop firing injectors long before that happens
