Just bought a truck how to tell if it has a chip?
A week ago I purchased a 2002 f250 with 245000 miles runs and drives very well for its age and should have a lot of life left in it. It currently has a 5in exhaust on it and other than that appears to be stock. With that being said I assumed it had no chip on it but i am beginning to second guess my self. I got home from work today doing my normal walk around making sure no oil starting to leak or anything and noticed the rear of the bed where the exhaust exits has black soot on it. While I personally have not seen it ever black smoke or smoke of any color come out of it has me concerned it may of been tuned in the past.
Basically is there anyway to determine if the truck has been chipped or programed?
I was going to buy a 6 position chip and start playing with it once i get my gauges installed and 6637 intake on it and don't want to cause a problem if I unintentionally put a chip on a pcm that has already been reprogrammed.
