2002 2.3 Manual - $3100 Kentucky

I got this truck back in March, but have since upgraded to a full size. Only reason is work has permanently moved me to a branch that is over an hour away, and I wanted something newer and more...

Re: CEL, codes, high idle, ABS light

Well, no real updates to post. Only thing that might be of interest is that I surpassed 1500 miles today since post #9 when work started requiring me to drive to the other branch. She's still running...

Re: CEL, codes, high idle, ABS light

Mini Update:

The difference is close to astronomical. I feel like I have a brand new truck. It idles normal, it shifts perfectly, rpms aren't acting crazy like they were before. Granted, I've only...

Well some good news to report. Checked the tracking number on the new intake this morning, and it's sitting at the post office. I'll be able to pick it up in the morning. Also, it just so...

Re: CEL, codes, high idle, ABS light

Auto parts store closed at 6 tonight, so I thought I would dust off my frustration with my ultra gauge and give the ol' girl another chance. I talked to her a little bit, we sorted out our...

Re: CEL, codes, high idle, ABS light

It was, but that definitely wasn't the ac compressor. I could hear/see that happening. This noise seemed to be coming from under the intake area.

Update:

I changed the plugs and wires today. Fired it up and it idled fairly rough at first and there was a weird knock. The knock almost sounded like flicking an empty water bottle but it was...

Re: CEL, codes, high idle, ABS light

Re: CEL, codes, high idle, ABS light

It's really funny and interesting that you say that. The shop told me that wherever the leak is, it's in the front of the intake. Is there any way you can get me a picture or diagram on where that...

CEL, codes, high idle, ABS light

Any help or remedy for my situations?

I know the intake has a leak in it. At least that's what the shop tells me. I replaced the intake gaskets, but that didn't do the trick. This is the only...

Sounds like you pushed the needle on too far. It doesn't need to be pushed all the way down. It could be rubbing the cluster face when it tries to move. Mine did that when I fixed my odometer gear....

When it dies, does it just stall out or does it lose all power? Radio, lights, ect. If it loses all power, it very well could be the battery cables. My old 95 used to do that. If be driving and it...

Critique My Truck

Re: Intake Gasket Question

Intake Gasket Question

I know if your head gasket leaks, you can mix up oil and coolant and obviously nobody wants that. What about intake gasket? I've been told by my mechanic that the intake gasket is leaking, and I want...

Re: Limited Radio Bezel & Radio

Do you know if everything works on it? I know these radios in the trucks can be finicky. Both radios in both of my trucks had their own problems. That's why I'm looking for a new one. If everything...

Re: Getting rid of stock parts, then goes in trash

I know this thread is a few months old, but is the radio the full radio or just the face? If it's the full radio and still available, how much shipped to 40330?
