Well it's been sometime since I've done any posting here, but here's an update on my M1009. Was (still) having issue with my truck stalling out under load. As I previously stated, the truck will start up and idle with no issue. It's only when I drive it that it stalls out. So I took it to a "diesel repair shop and explained in detail what we did (replaced fuel sending unit in tank, uplift (mechanical fuel pump on side of engine), changed out fuel filter. Fuel is clean and flows freely from bleeder on filer. It was suggested that the injector pump may be failing. I told the shop no great rush, but it's been 2 months, and nothing yet. It seems after talking to the owner of the shop, his mechanic doesn't know what to do and they didn't want to fire the "parts cannon" at it. These people have been in business for years and it's hard for me to believe that a basic diesel mechanic, can't figure out what going on with the M1009. I understand that she's 35 years old and the new breed of mechanic may not get it. If my health issues weren't a problem, I'd work on the darn thing myself. Sorry 'bout this post, it's just frustrating that it has taken them 2 months to figure out the issue. I've evening given them this web site to look thru and others dealing with a 6.2 liter diesel engine. Is it the NEW mechanics, don't know the basics?
