Have you gotten your brakes straight yet?? </div></div>
My brakes have gotten a little better since I install new front pads from the NAPA severe duty pads, but I still have not been able to work on my truck. I had 12 days off during the holidays and worked on my house finishing my upstairs (well, starting to finish [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif[/img])I didnt even have a chance to wash my truck [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img].
As far as the rich smell, I to changed my ipr, map, eot sensor. By the time I figure it out, the engine might be worn out [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif[/img], I still have not performed a compression check, but the engine runs fine and has plenty of power and doesnt use a drop of oil. I did notice recently, when the engine is up to temp the exhaust smells good, no rich smell, but to keep it up to temp I had to install a grill cover and remove the fan. I have to tow a boat on Sunday, temps will be in the low 40's and the boat is about 8500lbs so I will see how the temps are with the fan off and the grill covered. At work we have a stock 97 with 125k on it and the exhaust smells perfect, no rich smell at all, this is the truck that I have been borrowing known good sensors from [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif[/img]. Good Luck
