Venting...... no cold start again
I am about done with my PSD. Everytime I turn around, something else is going wrong. Right when I need my truck, I have to work on it to make money with it, so I called a buddy, and gave him the job. I shoudl have kept my f-150 with the inline 6, it only let me down 2 times in 5 years. Once was a fuel line on the side of the road, which I fixed in 5 minutes, and the other was the battery, luckly I was close by, and my brother got me a new one. needless to say, I am about ready to sell this truck. there my venting is done.... thanks....
This time it is the GPR, it is begining to smoke on me, and one terminal is burnt. Plus the truck will not crank, even when jumped with my van, so maybe the starter too? or could the GPR draw that much that just the starter clicks? It is hard to work on the truck with 2 toddlers running around and wife is at work. Other usefull background info. Replace alt about 2 weeks ago, batteries are 1 yr old, but this is the second time they have been ran down. GPR is about 6 mnts old in it.... Fuel heater is bad and unpluged. I Need to get a fuel filter. HPOP resivior is unkown to hold oil, was going to check it this morning. Whenis does start, it take aobut 5 to 15 seconds of cranking and it starts right up. when itdoes, oil pressure is nothing, then about seconds later, it goes to normal, just a little higher than half way.
Here is my list of thinks I need to check \ get done,
replace GPR, check GP's, check HPOP resivor, get crossover line (TSC 4000 psi line!!!! 12.99) pull batteries for testing, pull starter for testing.
I know it is not that cold yet, hovering around 30 degrees right now. there is no plug close to my truck, so I do not plug it in. (live in a appartment) There is one plug close, but I am sure the landloard will get mad, since he pay for the power on that plug, or the lady that lives in that building.....(do not want to start any stuff....)
Looking for a FORD.
