Well I cant catch a break with this truck, I just had the engine out a couple weeks ago to fix crap and now more problems. So I was driving the other day and randomly my truck throws a CEL. Figured maybe it would just happen once, but now anytime I start the truck and it sits idling for a second it throws a CEL immediately now.

When it throws the CEL the idle gets higher and a little erratic, now Ive checked my oil level and its fine, the weird thing is that the truck doesnt drive like crap or anything, still pulls real hard up top and turbo builds the normal amount of boost and just as quick as always. Only thing is that when the truck is in overdrive and I barely give it gas it will start blacking out the road behind me with no problem, it normally doesnt smoke that easily.

That is on my mild performance tune that I drive on daily, now if i get on it from a stop it does seem to take a little longer to get the turbo to spool as well. But once its spooled it pulls hard still. The idle smooths out for the most part too but is still a little different. I honestly have no idea whats wrong with it, I havent had a chance to see if there are any codes

Just wanted to give plenty of background and info on the issue and see what you guys think. Thanks

yeah my luck still isnt improving with this truck and its really gettin hard to keep justifying holding on to it, it will depend on how much it will cost to fix this now.

Im leaning towards IPR possibly, could have got some crap in it with the oil after dropping the pan and everything, thoughts?

I'm thinking IPR or ICP sensor as well. Try to pull some codes and let's fix this thing. :thumb:

man oh man. That truck has a bad attitude thats for sure. I am betting you pull codes leading to the IPR. Good luck Matt, keep us posted if you get time to pull codes.

Yeah hopefully Ill get over there tomorrow and get them pulled, luckily I have a spare IPR layin around but I still gotta pull the fuel bowl and crap to get it out which would just be more reason to get the fuel system in there sooner, but I dont know if I want to make the drive to my buddies shop three hours away where the fuel system is like this

If you have a spare IPR...throw it in and see if the CEL comes back on.
