    I didn't take it personally. I just didn't consider fuel and filters a waste of time. Still don't.

    Some of the issue might be what "go bad" means. The fuel itself doesn't go bad. But, the crap that no-start-guy was trying to push into his engine (fuel+water+algae) through a clogged filter might be horrible.

    We also have no idea where he is. If he is in Nova Scotia, his fuel is probably as fresh as the day it was refined. If he is in Florida, it was probably crap to begin with and got 10x worse after sitting for more than a year.

    I purposely did not quote polishers or additive companies in my shelf life comment because their numbers are BS. I think that Exxon's estimates are more to cover their asses for instances of improperly storage. That's more reasonable.

    About the deal... that's fine - if we even need it. We just disagreed in the wrong way. I have no beef with you and hope to learn stuff from you as time goes on.

    "The fact of the matter is that you didn't just offer up your opinion on the no start. You said that my opinion was BS. You may want to think about that. It's a forum. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. If you think that your opinion is best, you should sell it on its own merits."

    I absolutely never called out your advice as BS. I merely stated that diesel fuel is not gasoline and it doesn't go bad. If you thought that was a personal attack on you --- that's on you. My background includes some marine time and I got thoroughly sick of the BS that goes on there about "polishing" fuel. That's a real money maker for charlatan mechanics with water access and it is definitely a trigger for me. Diesel fuel doesn't "go bad" ... full stop. It may get some growth in it which could plug filters but even that is really rare.

    Lets make a deal - you don't call me out publicly again and I won't ever do it to you.

    Got some pics you can share on cabling layout for an early model 2004 (build date 6/2003)? I have a wiring harness I pulled to do engine work... now I can't make sense of it. Doesn't help part of it was chewed by pack rats. Thanks for anything you can provide, Mike

    This message is supposed to be after the one below this. Sorry for the confusion...

    The clogged cat gave me 2 codes, a p0401 which is insufficient egr flow and a p2262 turbocharger pressure not detected. I removed the cat and cleared the codes and drove it runs fine, but the p0401 code comes back after a few minutes of driving, the CEL does not come on though. Could the spool plug or egr valve be doing this? I think my cat has been partially clogged since i bought it and just now it got to a point where it would barely run. Thanks

    Cant seem to figure out how to private message, not for sure why it won't let me so i'll post it here.

    I finally got around to installing the egr plug, just curious where you mounted the egr valve? Mine is sitting right next to the intake tube i believe, didnt know if there was a better spot to zip tie it. Also I cleaned it up just a fuzz and made sure it moves freely, didn't spend too much time on it since it seemed redundant with the install of the spool plug.

    So my next question is can the egr valve still cause any issues just plugged in sitting there? I only ask cause I had some weird fluctuating low power/boost issues a couple of weeks after I installed the egr plug. I initially thought i fudged something and it was due to the spool plug or egr valve, but after looking at it for a bit, turns out my cat converter was plugged, and the screen inside was messed up as well. I took off the cat converter and it runs normal again. Couldn't see light through it at all.

    Do you have a schematic of what fuse #35 is running? My dome light stopped working and I replaced the bulb with no fix. I checked the fuse and it was burnt. When I replaced it the new fuse popped right away.

    Got it to magically start again somehow and took it to the shop and while driving the truck ran great and had only one issue and that was when I went to accelerate after slowing down it took like a second or 2 for it to start actually accelerating but when i would be accelerating and push on the pedal more it didn’t have a problem. Only when it slowed don’t and started to accelerate with nothing behind it. They “think” it’s my hpop. So the icp was bad in it and was showing pressure key on about 300 lbs but after replacing when cranking it only builds up to 300-340 and when the bad one was in it was showing 500 525 cranking. Could it really be my pump if when it does want to ever turn over it runs fine? I also noticed that when I took it toothe
