Had all of these ambitious plans of washing/detailing and getting some wax laid down.

Muggy and index near 100....barely got all that acreage cleaned (LB/CC/DRW), gave in and fired up the house AC to hibernate.

Usually try and wait 'till Memorial Day, but the heat came early this year.

Easily replaced when doing the WP....not so much in trying to reach (or even see) thru and below everything on the engine front, with everything in place.
Thanks a lot!!

I will add that to the list of things to do when I have to replace my WP.

BTW, I never see any mention of anyone changing #7. Does it never fail, and if it did, what would be the symptoms?

Thanks Again.

In the abrev part name, it does mention something temperature related.
I've always thought it's purpose was to prevent back flow, in the joining of two return flows to the radiator. It doesn't resemble a coolant t-stat in design, more like a one way flow valve.

I saw the post referring to it as a potential cause of low ECT problems if it was stuck open. Doubt that scenario would make a difference though, as it's such a low volume flow thru a small line.

If it somehow became restrictive/closed, I guess you wouldn't know unless you shredded a turbo from heat issues...as you'd be guessing why it failed. ?

That's what she said....

Glow plugs are not a main concern right now in FL lol

Tell me about it!! 93* here today with a heat index of 102*. Supposed to be 98/99 for Memorial Day weekend so I'm sure it'll feel at least 110* then.......

I’ve pulled way more codes with my CTS and AutoCal more than what your claiming, that’s what your bitching about, I don’t really care where your located.
Maybe a little more educating on how to read and pull codes with these devices would help. LOL

Maybe YOU'RE the one who needs some education. Try using proper grammar next time.
To YOUR "point", I'm not bitching about how many codes my autocal or CTS pulls or doesn't pull. All I was saying was "ECM/TCM malfunction" is pretty generic.....

Don't listen to those two guys. Did you check the hubs for play? Did you check all your speed sensor connections? Are the connections dry? If you look at all those and everything seems good, you will need to get your hands on a good scanner. The cts and auto call will not read abs codes. You might be able to see the speed sensors with the cts and keep an eye on them while you drive to see if that is your problem. Auto cal might be able to do it too but you will only be able to watch one at a time while drive after you program the auto cal. I have not looked in to this with the auto cal and I don't have a cts so I'm only offering my suggestions....

had a rattle, right rear. Found the MBRP muffler that was on the truck to be cracked the entire circumference at the front plate.

Wanted to get a Stainless Flo Pro but could not find any in stock, so I went with a Stainless MagnaFlow instead.

The biggest PITA was getting the front muffler end off the pipe because they used those cheap ass old style clamps to put the system together/ I replaced them with band clamps.

GTG now though. about 1 hr 15 minutes start to finish.

Happens to us all as we age Hook.

The mind stays around 29 or so when we could do ANYTHING we wanted.

Now I find, several decades later, that the body won't perform as well or for as long as it once would.

I don't see lots of posts for failed Turbos for heat related issues so I guess I will satisfy myself with just changing that hose out as a potential future coolant leak.
