Re: Need HELP ASAP!

So you currently have the bulldog tuner on correct? If yes try to uninstall it and see if the truck continues to do the same thing, that's where I would start. I had a edge juice with attitude blow up on me and create issues with my truck, once it was uninstalled truck ran fine. I personally would recommend running a SCT programmer on 6.0 seems to be the best one and consensus of the group I personally love mine. Also are you throwing any codes?

Re: Need HELP ASAP!

He is actually saving the money 2 get the Livewire, But I was thinking its the tuner since it started right after the update? I will def tell him 2 minus the tuner n see if it helps!?

Ive been thinking he may have a fuel issue somewhere? So were gonna start by checkin the FICM this week also?

Re: Need HELP ASAP!

Lose the tuner. If problems go away, now you know.

People fuss at me when I tell them to lose the generic tuner crap on their 6.0's. SCT with CUSTOM tunes are the only way to go with these trucks. More times than not those generic ones cause nothing but problems. By generic I mean Bullydog, Banks, Edge, Superchips, etc.

I can tell you from experience wish I would have done it right the first time. EDGE CTS is great for monitoring though.

Re: Need HELP ASAP!

Agreed. I'd get a CTS for just that if I didn't already have pillar gauges. Started to get one anyways, but I don't want to have gauges/monitors scattered all over.

Re: Need HELP ASAP!

You need to get it scanned and see what codes are on there. Not Autozone, Oreilly's, etc. needs a real scanner on it. I know the first thing people say is to scan it, but that really is the first step to diagnose a 6.0
