awesome! by doing this is it good as new?
hmm... good write up... i was going to send mine to power hungry but i might be able to do this.... about how long did it take yaCold start and cold performance
It was in the mid 40's ambient when I was checking this and the truck was cold from sitting overnight. The truck did not want to start which is what directed me to your procedure. I didn't get the audible rapid clicking sound that I accustomed to hearing from the FICM when you turn the key. Once the temps. warm up into the 50's the sound returns.This does not sound normal.
What are your EOT/ECT temps when checking the voltage?
I just did this repair this afternoon. Truck started right up after the new solder job. Took it for a ride, refueled, and parked it. Just went to go start it up to go to the gym. Now its missing, surging, bucking, what ever you wanna call it. It sat for about 2 hrs. Temp gauge still showing the block is warm. Truck wont stay running without keeping your foot in it.
Im fed up. Calling the dealer in the am. These motors suck.
Thanks. This was really helpful. The original photo bucket link no longer works.PDF of DOC
