97 dually with 202,000 miles is what Iím working on, my first diesel.
Itís starting to get cold here in South East NM, I need a shot of ether to get it started in the morning, this may be battery related. Spins pretty fast at first but quickly slows down, thatís when I use the gas. New batteries are on the ďlistĒ. Starts fine the rest of the day.
After it starts(cold in the morning) the GPR cycles on and off about once per second, I can hear it clicking and verified it with voltmeter. Is this normal?
Truck idles smoothly after it starts. Blows a little blue smoke until it warms up. Seems to run nice and smooth except sometimes it will idle rough when I stop. Any ideas there?
A little about the truck as far as I know.
I bought it in June with 197k on it.
Owner said he had the oil changed just before I bought it. Only mods to the truck that I know of were cat
delete and SMF.
What I have done to it,
3Ē down pipe into 4Ē straight out the back
Big round intake filter mod.
Changed the oil/filter about 200 miles ago. Rotella 15-40
New GPR, didnít help the cold starts.
New fuel pump
