Unless its a '98.5-02 VP44 truck with a bad lift pump....thing was probably starving for fuel the whole time.....Worst Cummins motor ever.
I agree with you there.
I look at the 24 Valve like the 6.0 PowerStroke. In the case of the 24 valve, the only thing really wrong with those, were bad factory lift pumps, causing the VP44 to starve for fuel, which of course caused pump failure. So basically, with a good lift pump, a 24 valve would be just as reliable as any other Cummins', but like the 6.0, since it took a while to figure out what the problems were, people try to avoid them like the plague. Including myself..
