Smile Recommendation for a Diesel Shop???

Hi All,

I live in the Hartford CT, area and was wondering if anyone had a suggestion on where a good diesel shop is for service.

Friend of mine said the Diesel Shop in Jewitt City CT, by the Casino...

Has anyone had to re-wire there abs from the rear abs sensor to front of truck?? I havea abs issue that I need to address...Any info is much appreciated..

Thanks to Everyone!

I had that problem in my 93 and it was the sensor I took it out and cleaned it. Are you just getting the light?

I replaced the sensor awhile ago...Yesturday I took it out cleaned it real good an put it back in....The abs light on dash is still solid....I also have the OD Flashing on the column and when it does the transmission shift super hard and lags in power.....Only goes away when I restart the truck.

I am trying to find a Scanner that someone may have close by to me where I can scan the truck with out buying one for $300+

Have you bled the RABS valve? Follow the rear hydraulic line from the Master Cylinder down the fender and back under the truck. On the frame rail near the bend in the underbody (from engine compartment to passenger compartment) is the Valve. It bleeds like a brake cylinder. Also check out it's wiring to make sure the tires haven't kicked something up to damage them.

Is fuse 15 and 17 under the dash good?

Does the speedo work normally?

Speedo is working normally now after I took it out and cleaned the crap out of the area....odometer works....I havent taken truck back on highway yet to see if the OD will flash (off) been kinda taking it easy around town so im local incase of issue...

I have not bled the RABS line yet...Is that something that I can do myself or will I need to go to mechanic...Just dont want to screw something up...

I should be looking on passenger side for the line to bleed? Is there a nut or a small valve?? Havent checked the fuses in about 3 weeks....I know the fuse slot that deals with my A/C is missing one little metal tag piece where the fuse when you push it in will not hold...So have to figure that damn thing out as well or try to re-wire that into something else...

Diesel Shop in Jewitt City CT, stated that it could be a wiring issue with the abs sensor is putting the truck into default mode/neutral mode...causing the transmission when it grabs to bang in and out of gear...

The speedo, RABS, and tranny all use the same VSS in the rear end. If the speedo is working smoothly g-e-n-e-r-a-l-l-y this should tell you the wiring and VSS are in ok order. Look behind the glove box for a black wire with orange stripe (I can get to mine easily from under the dash instead of dropping the glove box). That wire should be connected to a solid red wire. Disconnect the two wires and jump the Blk/Org wire to ground. Rotate the key to run (not start) and see if the ABS light starts flashing. Count the flashes. The long pause is the indication of the end of that string of flashing (ie. it might flash 3x-pause-10x-pause-3x-pause-10x-pause, this means you have a RABS code 3 and 10).

On the valve there is another bleeder fitting just like the ones on a brake cylinder. have someone pump up the brakes and hold on the last pump. Lightly crack the bleeder to let a little fluid out. Repeat until only fluid comes out of the system Instruct the person pumping the brakes to NOT ALLOW the pedal to fully travel to the floor. DO NOT allow them to "lift up" on the pedal until you have closed the valve or you will suck air into the system. This will ruin the wiper seals on the piston inside of the master cylinder. Brake fluid is only good for 2-3 years and must be fully replace. Otherwise air and water trapped in the fluid will rot the brake system form the inside out.

Thanks BIGFUEL...for the diagram...I will keep working on the truck and see what I can do to resolve it....I know my ABS pump module under the driverside frame is pretty rusted out...Any idea where I can get a used one for a 1995 F350 PSD??
