UVCH "fix"?

hey guys. a little while ago my truck completely lost bank 2 and i thought it was the IDM. well, get a new IDM, install, get all amped up and hope she runs, well it didnt. so i rip out a few curse words and get back to diagnosing. it turned out to be where the UVCH makes a connection with the injector wires and glow plug wires connect. (i forget the name) the plug was slightly ****ed making a bad connection resulting in having no power in that bank. so i reinstall everything and everything was fine and dandy. yesterday afternoon im loading up my dirtbikes into the bed of my truck and it started running crappy again, missing, and all that. i went through and ripped the valve cover off, fixed the little plug, and went wheeling. my question is, has anyone else had this issue and is there a different fix other than going to the dealer and buying that wedge? thanks for input

that has been a very common problem for a long time , the wedge is a good idea to do , its a permanent fix for the problem ,if you would have posted up before buying an idm, we could have saved you some money , its very rare to be an idm

i went down to the dealership where my buddy works to see if i could pick up one of those wedges. noone at the dealership had heard of it. he said that they typically replace the uvch and the valve cover gasket and be done with it. does anyone know the part number?

Go to another dealer or same dealer ask to talk to the diesel tech, then the parts nerd will understand. Had to do this awhile back.
