truck is in the shop this morning

157,600km on the clock, almost out of warranty, check engine light comes up, surprise EGR code so they are going through the TSB to remedy the problem. been having a blue smoke/white smoke for a little while now will be nice to get fixed up.

as soon as the warrenty is up ill be doing the egr delete.

once they replace the valve i guess they road test it to see if the cooler is fouled (kinda hoping it is)

2 new batteries 850cca going in today too

was going to change the fuel filters at the same time (save me getting under it in the snow) but they charge a 0.8 to change out the filters... can you believe that!

07f350 never had any work done on it (warrenty work) been running like a top since new... hopefully this fixes things up for a little bit

interested to see what the bill is going to be when the dust settles


OH YA anyone know what i could expect to pay for an aftermarked clutch? i want to chip this thing but i know the stock clutch isnt the strongest

Changing the fuel filters was so easy I think I would tell them to shove it and do it myself. BUT the weather in DE normally breaks occasionally into the 40s so it's not that bad.

If they end up replacing the EGR I would make sure if they also swap coolant that they do it right with distilled water. If you get the EGR replaced no need to delete it for a couple years. Do you have gauges?

A Dealer here charges $119 for a fuel filter change.
I get the MC filter set for $50 @ Advance Auto.
Savings= $69
takes me 25 min to change crawling under in a parking lot, scrounging through the toolbox looking for that socket, 6mm hex, etc.

$69 in 25 min= $165.60 per hour average.
I'll change my own filters
