At what time does it come? OPEN AGAIN!!!!
I'm in a discussion with my mechanic because the truck got the SES light and the scanner got code P1316.
I drove to the mechanic with almost no power and then I could stop and start the engine pretty well. It ran on 4 cylinders (in my opinion), but it ran.
By the time the mechanic had time to inspect the truck, it was 4 days later, so the engine was cold and he couldn't start it anymore.
He says that once the code P1316 got a reset, the code didn't occur anymore, so he thinks that the UVCH is good. I'm telling him that it's probably because the engine can't be started anymore, but he says that it should give the code as soon as he tries to start it. FYI: the starter does turn well and the batteries are good, but the engine only gives a hard knocking sound, but doesn't start.
Who is right? At which moment does a code set and at what time does the SES light come on? As soon as starting, or when running?
He didn't remove the covers yet because he thought the problem was somewhere else, but will do that tomorrow because I asked him to do that instead of searching through other things. He thinks it's not the UVCH while I'm pretty convinced that this is exactly my problem.
The problem is that I'm from Europe and we don't have Powerstroke engines/experts over here...
I'm writing too much... in a nutshell: code on startup or while running?
Thanks for the info,
