I don't know if this is sarcasm or just saying I am pretty good with these trucks. I just don't have the test equipment for doing diagnostics.


What I have learned about Michigan is there is not a lot of diesel shops around. So if something is wrong with your truck you have two options fix it yourself, or take it to the dealer. What I do is take it to the dealer so they can run the tests. Then tell me what is wrong with the truck. Then take it home and do the repairs.


Some day I will have a computer that will tell me what is wrong with my truck. Just need the extra money to buy the thing with.

If you want to drive I can fix it for you down here in Silver Lake/Mears. My dad has a full service shop here.

sorry been busy with work and home life. Took it to the dealership and #8 injector died. I see that ford is really proud of there inj. at 375 bucks apiece. almost 4,000 for all 8 and install. Needless to say the stroker is sitting for a few weeks.
