    True failure rates of the 6CTA8.3L injector pump?

    All of this is great troubleshooting but why not just buy the truck expecting a bad IP? Use that as bargaining tool, about 1k, then just fix it. If IP is bad you're covered if not you are golden! The IP is easy to remove and replace and a rebuilder can bump it up in timing and fuel without much...

    Has the trans fluid debate been settled yet?

    I abuse my wrecker pretty hard and have not had a failure yet, 10 years now, 10wt. Unsure how anyone knows they have 15w40 it looks just like 10wt. BTW they were all filled with 10wt when new or rebuilt.

    8.3L puffs smoke underhood

    My M936A2 puffs smoke underhood when first starting only. Appears to be near front of engine, thinking exhaust gasket but wondering if could just tighten the bolts or might be cracked manifold? Nothing overly obvious jumps out when looking.
