Well, I got the truck out of the shop and had the codes read, one is P1316, something about injector module? Where is this located and what can be wrong? Also had one about the air bag bulb burned out on the switch to turn off the passenger side air bag. I have the switch out and it looks like it's soldered in. Is there an aftermarket source for this switch? I tried Car Quest and NAPA and was told by both they can't get one. Also the 4X4 light in the dash isn't working, I pulled the dash pad out and got the socket and bulb out. Need to get some replacements. I also have a bad vibration on acceleration and found a bad Ujoint, and I mean bad! Wouldn't dare drive it much farther.
I tested the glow plugs and have .8 to 1.2 ohms on all 8, so at least they're OK. It seems to run good since I drained the fuel and put in some fresh with Stanadyne Fuel Additive.
The starter, I had a 2nd one sent to me because of the noise and it still made a racket. I had the spacer off the original starter on. I talked to the dealer of the starter and he wanted me to try the spacer they supply for the Nippendenso starter, It did quiet it down some, but I think it's still too noisy. He told me there are Chinese copies out there of Nippendenso starters. If it's a copy, they did a darn good job of it.
