Hate to bring it up again. Mine sounds the same as some others but different
I know you guys are h#ll on the cps's but not so sure its my problem. I bought the truck in 10-04 in texas with 70k from a toyota dealer over the net. Some moron traded this beast in on a toy truck
I made it 70 miles from the dealer and pulled over in a downpour to get some sleep. three hours later the truck turns but won't start(I had shut it off 4 times before). 24 hours later back on the road to finish my 1500 mile trip home with a $500 repair bill from local ford dealer. broken ground wire in fuse box under dash(tells me 02's had windshield leaks drivers side and someone had box off to dry it out and broke the wire
) toyota dealer paid bill
I got 18.5 mpg going home 75mph with cruise on. I have 80k on it now and best mpg lately is 16. average 12 and am down to 9 in the winter. it shut off twice in one day in june 05 and now in the past three weeks it seems i can't go more than 10 miles without it stuttering breifly of it just shuts off without warning. once sitting still, on the pedal on the highway, coasting down a hill (no common factors) twice the emisson light came on till motor was shut off then it clears. when on the highway it will restart itself by the time i get it into nuetral, other times it starts on the first crank but twice it took several times to fire. it sounds electrical to me
I replaced all filters on breakdown in TX and again this fall and cleaned some sand out of the fuel bowl also. I drain the bowl for water every month or so.
Any new ideas? too cold to waste time under the hood now and too cheap to waste money at the dealer. might have to wait till it dies so they can't say "there's nothing wrong,that will be $500, have a nice day!"
Does anyone know of a code scanner thats worth the money? I don't mind spending the money but hate buying crap that doesnt get the job done.
Also thinking of buying a chip and exhaust to fit my ego
anyone getting much mgp improvement with theirs?
