Even if the inferred strategy is used, a v-reference short in the EBP sensor can still cause problems!
yup .Its me again. Im here to write the last chapter of my horror story.
After finally fighting the demons that inhabited my truck that loved to run amok, things have finally went back to normal. Best part is, my MPG shot up to between 19 and 22 MPG. I am now running Stanadyne supplement with every tank and that seems to have made a difference.
Not sure if anyone else has ever heard of this...but Ive heard of some people locally putting about half a quart of hydraulic fluid in the fuel tank. Not sure about whether this is good for a diesel truck or not. Let me know. Maybe its something I should consider if its a good thing for my boy.
Thanks to everybody on here that gave advice and prayed for me and my boy. Both he and I certainly appreciate it. After changing the EBP, things have been on an upswing. Even though the EBP is inferred on late 2003/early 2004, its still important for turbo positioning and should not be ruled out as a culprit. I went from 4 lbs of boost to 21 lbs.
My next step to completely rehabbing the boy is to have the head gasket done, but that will come with time. I already know to have ARP studs put in and change the oil cooler (included in the job). Its the last step. Again, thanks to everyone. Hopefully one day I can help you somehow, some way.
