Another missed day of work!

Another shitty day. My truck broke down and could not get it to run. After 8 hrs I think I have it working. had to pull the throttle body off and clean (plus drill out 2 airways with a drill because they were packed with carbon.) Replaced aic valve, throttle position sensor, new egr valve and pipe, fuel filter. I then had to spray throttle body cleaner through the pcv valve line and run out. Seems to start and stay running now but we will see tomorrow morning. GOOD TIMES!

  2. It sounds like you still did a lot of work, just with no pay, which sucks.

  3. your truck was trying to save the world by packing the carbon in the airways instead of letting it go into the air. Your truck is so enviromentally friendly! LOL, but glad you could fix the thing, sorry you missed a day of work though.
