Um what?


This is a fail. Go back to gas engines since you can't tell the difference between a IDI and a PSD.

Not being rude, but how do you not know what you bought? Maybe we are coming across a little harsh but really, what made you buy this particular vehicle?

Well I wanted a durable vehicle that would last me. I had a Chevy 4.8 and I live in upstate ny where it's extremely hilly. It was constantly up shifting downshifting an basically underpowered. I was burning through fuel. I also am planning on getting a good sized camper and a couple of 4whhelers so I wanted something with power that's basically why I got it. I like diesels as well I'm a paramedic and we use diesels for our rigs I like driving them and their reliability.

Well a diesel was certainly the best choice for that application. Take care of it and it will last.



But to answer the first post, IDI is a mechanical injected engine and sucks in power. The PSD is a computer controlled engine that has a lot more power and if you wanted to mod it, you can achieve more power out of it with a intake, exhaust and a custom tune chip.

Well in all reality, don't expect to not burn through fuel even on the most level of grades These trucks are in the mid teens with fuel economy (depending on too many variables to give you an accurate number). Are there any modifications done to the truck that you're aware of?

These trucks are as reliable as you make them with maintenance. Take care of it and it will take care of you. One of the great aspects of these rigs is that they are relatively easier to work on (especially thanks to the .org) since they are so widely used. If you have a problem, you'll find it will likely have been posted on here. Feel free to start browsing threads using the "Custom Search" option at the top left. There are almost limitless threads of great info.

As a fellow bandaid bunny, where do you run out of? There's a section on the .org just for Emergency Services. I'll have to track down who to contact, but you can shoot him an email with your creds info and gain access.
