fords ids scanner will tell in just a second if it has an update or not , i do agree that the truck shouldnt have a light ,but what i should have said was if he has plans on getting custom tunes with egr taken out then first get truck updated to latest calibration , if it just had a ficm replaced , it should have latest calibation , and he may actually have an injector goin bad and sticking cold,thats is probably his cold start problem, they can find that also on powr balance with ids when engine is cold if an injector is skipping cold or not, then once that is taken care of get the tunes and put in the truck , and see if light comes back on then, until egr is taken out of tuning i wouldnt waste alot of time on trying to fix anything , hope this makes a little more since, i can get into further detail, but woud rather disuss it by phone if so, pm me you number and i will call, its hard to explain alot of things on the net
Ok will do! Appreciate it!
Just got off the phone with him. He had the truck in the dealer again to assess the hard start rough idle issue. This dealer says injector #2 has an intermittent miss. Sounds like we should replace it. The last dealer told us 2,4,6,8 were bad, then we told them the FICM was, they replaced the FICM, truck ran great, but they still told us 2,4 were missing intermittently, now its just #2 I guess.... AHHH. I wish I had the tools some of the "diesel techs" in our local dealerships had, it would be so much easier! The tech even asked us questions about the EGR delete, he was amazed by it. He then went on to tell us he does more work on 6.4's now than 6.0's. ummm ok.
Ok so since my buddy and I are rather thick headed, we like to prove the issues out first, before just tossing money at the trucks. With MY SCT and the liveload software is there anyway we can monitor and see which injector if any is actually missing...? What parameters would we need to watch?
Thanks everyone for the help so far.
Scuffy, I'm shootin you a PM.
