Installed a S&B intake on the F-350, and it woke the truck up some, and the old stock intake you could see where small amounts of dust and pollen where getting past the seal.

Took the truck to the car wash. Something I NEVER do, but company was paying. They put too much tire dressing on and it slung all down the sides of the truck. Took it BACK to the carwash. Showed them the problem.

Them: you want we wash it again?
Me: ahhhhh...yes.
Them: did you want to pay for it?
Me: ahhhhh...NO.
Them: ok.
Me: DO NOT PUT THE DRESSING ON THIS TIME< THE TIRES LOOK FINE!
Them: uhhh...ok.

1 hour later the attendant is putting on tire dressing.

Me: ahhh...what are you doing?
Them: I thought you said you wanted tire dressing.
Me ahhhhh....why do you suspect I brought it back?
Them: I dunno.
Me: Well, if the dressing gets all over my truck again I'll be back...again.
Them: So, you don't want it?
Me: well no, but kinda late now don't ya think.
Them: uh, I guess.

So I drove home very slowly and parked the truck overnight so the dressing would dry and not get all over the truck AGAIN.

Total time wasted: 2.5 hours.
Time it takes me to wash it myself: about 20 min.

Bottom line....whatever it is you do...just fecking DO IT RIGHT. Not like I was asking the car wash to rotate my tires. If I performed like that my clients would never hire me.

Took it to a local locksmith to get a key for my tailgate lock (never had it since I bought the truck--tailgate is from a newer model--IIRC someone here told me 2008-2010). They took out the cylinder and asked me if I wanted it to work with my ignition key. Turned out to be less than if they just made a new/different key and that's what I preferred anyway, so got it done ($40). I ended up losing the lockring the guy took off when I shut the gate while he was inside with the cylinder (we think it slipped down and got wedged inside the metal of the tailgate). They had one in their shop that was partially broken but it works for now (turns out there is another locking thingy in there so it should be ok for a while). Might go to a parts store to see if I can get a new ring to put in there if it's only a buck or so.

Now I have a tailgate and topper that locks up so I can put some stuff in there and go downtown if I need to.

Live in Colorado, wanna Immigrate to Alaska or Wyoming/Idaho border area.

dropped mine off at a hopefully better mechanic to sort out why its throwing some codes... i don't have any way to test things like the MAP and wastegate valve actuator...

I gave them this...
===PCM DTC P1249===
Code: P1249 - Wastegate Control Valve Performance
Module: Powertrain Control Module
Wastegate Control Valve Performance
--Possible Causes--
- Short to Ground.
- Plugged WGC Hose or Port.
- WGC Actuator
- WGC Valve.
- Damaged PCM.

===PCM DTC P0676===
Code: P0676 - Cylinder No. 6 - Glow Plug Circuit
Cylinder No. 6 - Glow Plug Circuit: Open circuit or Short circuit
Possible causes are: Glowplug control circuit; Glow plug cylinder No. 6 ; GPCM

===PCM DTC P0678===
Code: P0678 - Cylinder No. 8 - Glow Plug Circuit
Cylinder No. 8 - Glow Plug Circuit: Open circuit or Short circuit
Possible causes are: Glowplug control circuit; Glow plug cylinder No. 8 ; GPCM



===IC DTC U1027===
Code: U1027 - Engine RPM Data Invalid
Module: Instrument Cluster
At some time in the past a corrupt message was received from the PCM. Try clearing the DTC to see if this DTC re occurs. If it does then carefully check the SCP wiring and run the PCM diagnostic.

===IC DTC U1262===
Code: U1262 - SCP Data Link Fault
Module: Instrument Cluster
SCP Data Link Fault
Operator Action: Run self test.



If I clear it, all these codes come back in a few days of driving around town. P0676 happens sooner than P0678.

2002 F250 Super Cab XLT longbed, white. stock except stereo and shell.

....old enough to know better....

Packed up the truck and hitched up the motorcycle trailer. Leaving tomorrow for Southern California to do a bunch of riding at some of my favorite spots along the way and to see family in Moorpark. Will be a lot of driving combined.

turns out that was caused by a defective WGC actuator solenoid, that's the thing mounted right on the front of the intake block. should get it back tomorrow.

all new glow plugs, and updated GP harnesses, too.
