I have been lurking for a bit reading this great forum.
I am in Ft St John for the winter and picked up a 97 reg cab 4x4.
the truck has a good assortment of previous owner mods that I am hoping to identify and repair with your help.
I am not well versed in the acronyms you guys use yet so have to google the alphabet soup you guys speak in
I guess we can start with the MAP sensor oddity...
why would someone splice a ground into the green wire?
next I need a name and part number to what appears to be a pressure sender that is leaking on the fuel pressure regulator.
next is looking for info on what i think is a high idle controller but looks different then the ones I find searching.
It is -20ť°C here and I have been busy trying to get the truck to start.
it was low on coolant. looks like thermostat housing leaks
it was low on oil. did an oil change with some rotella t6? 5w40. oddly the motor seems to run far smoother, never seen that just with an oil change.
the cord running between the two batteries was hanging on to the post by a 'thread', so replaced it.
once it reliably starts in the cold I can start chasing the wiring issues.
it really needs rear disc brakes and lockers.
thank you for any assistance you can provide
