The truck still runs like new-very
smooth and doesn't use oil, but it's
loosing power and that's killing the gas
milage. There were actually very few
repairs until 140,000 miles and then
several very major things went wrong.
The egr valve which had been replaced
one before, failed again. This time the
dealer removed the intake and cleaned
the cross over passage which was largly
blocked. At the same time he noticed
that the fuel regulator (or some related
component) was leaking. The entire bill
came to $900. ouch. We also had to
replace the fuel pump. Twice. Luckly
the dealer waranteed the pump the second
time. $1,100. ouch.
We use/abuse this truck for towing a
boat, that is in excess of the trucks
towing capacity and it has never come
back to bite me. I'm happy to say that
all of the interior components and
gizmos still work and the trans has been
It would be nice if the truck wouldn't
always start in second gear. Very annoying.
