Justin, glad I could help you out. Diesel conditioner and clean fuel really helps with improving power!Well, I flew into San Diego this morning to pick up the Pineapple Express. The transit co left the switches on so the new batteries installed in HI were dead.
The low air light is blinking but the pressure is good and the brakes work great. Any ideas?
Worked the dead battery drama, shot some air in the front tires, picked up some fuel and got on the road for the first leg of my trip. I arrived in Yuma this afternoon at 5p local time. I will be here for a week with work then I will head home.
THANK YOU BRUCE. When I left San Diego the truck was acting like it was starving for fuel. Per Bruce's idea I put some injector cleaner (double dose) in the tank when I filled up then headed for the hills on Hwy 8E. It cruised at 40mph and had no azz for ~60 miles then it started to wake up. By the time I got to Yuma it was pulling strong up to 55mph (2000 rpm). I did not exceed 2K RPM.
Tomorrow I will change the fuel filter and change the ten 1100s out with six 1400s. The bed has some serious cancer but the cab looks great. When I get home, I will swap beds out with a nice one I have waiting on me.
Hopefully the rest of the trip will be uneventful.
