I was toldd I have a 03 engine in my truck when I bought it. I am thinkin otherwise. But, in any case, how do I tell what HPOP I have without taking it off the truck? Is there a way at all?
as to whether or not it really has an 03 motor in it,I was toldd I have a 03 engine in my truck when I bought it. I am thinkin otherwise. But, in any case, how do I tell what HPOP I have without taking it off the truck? Is there a way at all?
Oh my that is interesting.Is there a way to tell by looking at the HPOP? I have a frankenstein motor, and I dunno which components are form which year? I will try looking at the valve covers....
That is very weird. I didn't think the 99 had 250hp either. My sticker on my truck(which of course is a 2000) says 235.My truck manufacture date is 6/98 so that makes it an early 99. The valve covers say its a 99, even says she base HP is 250. I thought the BHP for mine was 235. I dunno. Any how, I will check the HPOP out tommrow. WHere is the inspection place for the rods? Can I inspect them with out fear of losing oil or other fluids?
It reads about 50-60 when its cold, and after complete warm up, it reads 15 at idle, sometimes 10. When I mash it, it usually goes to 25. It should be 50-70. I have this squealing sometimes, rare tho. I also hear a slight low thump thump comming from what sounds like the front of the engine. I was told by Matt at Spartan Deisel, here in h'ville, that that was my HPOP making that sound cause it was low on oil. Which would mean the Low oil pressure pump aint keeping up. I replaced it, and it corrected it for the most part. You would really have to take a hell ride in the truck to understand. I will be glad to show you anytime. I wanna get Scuffy828 on this problem, but he needs to have the truck in his possesion to properly diagnose it.
