Hey guys, I've been lurking around here while researching used PSDs and figuring out a few things before making a purchase. Love the forum.
Found a beautiful 2005 extended cab with the 6.0, with most of the bulletproofing already done. The previous owner had excellent records of all the work he did at a reputable local shop. Nevertheless, I was meticulous in testing ECT/EOT deltas, signs of degas puking, FICM voltages, blowback etc. I ran a scangauge while test driving it and everything looked great and seemed to be as described by the seller. I drove it for about 15-20 minutes on the test drive and later decided to buy it.
So I am driving it home for the first time and all hell breaks loose.
Over a slight bump while getting onto the freeway I have the glow preheat/ABS/battery dash signals flash, radio turned on and clock reset and then tranny wouldn't shift - barely drivable. Pulled over and shut her down, after cleaning the remains of my lunch from the seat I started it back up no problem and drove for a bit everything seeming fine.
This happened one more time, about 20 minutes later in the trip - however after the flash the engine turned off going around 30mph. Pulled over waited a few minutes and started back up and drove the rest of the way.
Suffice it to say, not exactly excited about my new truck right now. I've been reading some threads on similar issues but just hoping to get some advice where to start investigating. Going to hook it up to my laptop soon to pull codes.
