Any one ever used The Diesel Store.com?

Wondering if anyone ever used a reman CP# from The Diesel Store.com or had any dealings with them. Advertising a 2 year warranty CP3 pump for $574. Working on a very tight budget and need a pump bad. Thanks for the feed back or reviews.

I understand your tight budget, but please, please, please!!!!!! Spend your money once and spend it right!! If you can’t wait until next payday an buy from a legitimate source then cross your fingers an pray, then when it goes bad at least you’ll know how to change it the next time!

Super, thanks, I did latch onto a good used CP3 and dropped it in over the July 4th weekend. Confirmed at least the CP3 was the problem. Now I have time to shop and save up for a good warranty CP3. That was a hateful job though. 12 hours under the hood.

What I liked about the Diesel Store is they give you 14 days to return the core, no up front core deposit.

I’ve been wanting to add a bigger pump to my truck but after reading a ton I think I’ll just do the two pump route, I’ve seen it’s a ton of work, and nothing about leaning over is remotely comfortable haha especially for 12 hours
But I’m glade you got it figured it for sure! And I’ll have to look into them for sure now, no core charge upfront is damn nice! I never knew they did that!

honestly unless your trying to build a high power truck, that pump will probably outlast the truck, CP3 pumps are over all pretty bullet proof and failures while they do happen, are rare. If it were me i would save some money up and put it aside as general repairs for the truck and not stress about the pump unless it fails again, which at that point, you have funds set aside to replace it. That is if the truck is still worth the effort and expense of the repair by that time.

i have heard of other companies allowing this on a case by case basis, wouldent hurt to call some more well known places and see if its something they would be willing to do. Maybe put a card on file or something if the pumps not returned in time?

Top side creepers are a game changer for stuff like that, really saves the wear and tear on the back. You can pick them up on amazon for 200-300 bucks, which im my mind is worth it if your spending that kind of time under the hood. It doesent take a whole lot of trips to the chiropractor to justify that expense.
