This is just a thought.Look at your negative battery cable. They seem to corrode easily and can cause all sorts of weird issues. And when I say corrode, I mean it does it under the sleeve, down the...

Fuel pumps and injectors

Have not posted in a while. I have a '96 regular cab with a 4.9. I am just over 380k miles now and the truck is not acting well. A large part of the problem, I think, is about a year ago I...

An ignition module not mounted right or not having good contact or even just faulty could cause that problem. The thing is, you are not going to know what the problem is until you find it. You need...

PO171 and 174 codes

I recently replaced both pumps in my '96 300-6 auto and now getting PO171 and 174 codes. I have looked on line at the 8 or so suggested things it could be. I was wondering what people have found...

What did it do? Just stopped working or slowly fade away? I just put two Spectra's in and got my truck running about two/three weeks ago. I'm getting 171 and 174 codes now.

If I'm not mistaken, I remember someone saying Crutchfield sells them but they're quite pricey.

I replaced my pump a few years ago with a Auto Zone Duralast model and I don't have any whine. Might be I got lucky, but I'm happy with it.

Come to think of it, I didn't replace it, another...

One day on the highway, it started flashing so I pulled over on the exit and shut the truck off. After I restarted, I drove up the exit and went across to the entrance ramp. At that point I saw a...

My truck has been off the road for several months. Been driving my old E150 van. Do not enjoy that. So last week, I finally took off my bed, ordered and replaced both fuel pumps, but on new shocks...

Like what you are doing to your truck. I don't know if you have some wood working experience, but I noticed you are using pine. That is fine and dandy, but it does not stain evenly. I suggest...

I would say you probably did do something to it if it didn't sound like that before and now coolant is getting in. I wouldn't think the head or intake warped in that short a period of time. I have...

To answer your other question, the pumps are sitting right on top. I'll be able to take them out standing over it. Be aware that you don't want to drive the lock ring with something that will cause...

Removing the bed is one of those things you think "boy, this is going to suck". But it really doesn't. Living in Raleigh, rust isn't a big issue. I have 6 bolts and only one gave me a problem, and...

A few years ago, I tried a 160, a 180, and back to a 195 in my '96 4.9. Without any doubt, the truck runs better with the 195. I wouldn't worry to much about the brand unless your "brand name...

Well, both pumps are now dead. So the question is, would be easier to pull the bed and get to both tanks that way or drop the tanks? One tank is nearly full, the other half full.

Procrastination pays off

'96, 4.9, auto

Six months ago, I came out of a store and my truck would not start. After trying to get it to run, I about gave up, flipped to the rear tank, and it started. I flipped it back and...

My truck has always been that way. At 45 miles an hour, it will struggle with what gear it needs to be in. If it is on a flat to declining road, it will shift into OD. Then if I start going up hill...

Well, I figured it out. I have the wrong starter. I got the one for a manual transmission instead of an automatic which the manual has a shorter throw.

Starter, relay, or other issue

This is what my truck was doing. I start it at least 25 times a day. As of recently, I would hear the starter "whirl", but not every time. I would turn the key and it would start on the second or...
