Dealership just called
Well, after a flurry of problems, having to have the dealership replace the IPR and ICP, they held the truck to do a compression test because they said there was a slight miss. All the cylinders are good (400-450psi) except for #7. that one was in the 300 psi range. They said my option is to replace the motor with a new or rebuilt. that was right before i dropped the phone. they want to charge me 10 grand because they can't find the problem in one cylinder???
the only real problem is the truck smokes at startup (when cold) and i mean it smokes like a CAT motor on a cold morning.
I had the oil tested, they said it was great, no contaminants, and the #7 injector was just replaced a couple weeks ago. (by a reputable garage)
I'm goin to get the truck tonight, but does anyone have any ideas on what it could be???
