P133C code check engine light is on

Took truck to dealer and they said problem undetermined, OK to drive till next week when they can look at it.
Odd to me that they don't know what the code is but says OK to drive.

This same thing happened a few months back while out of town and light went off before I returned and didn't come on till yesterday.

Any ideas?

Glowplug on cylinder 5 is bad. Iíve heard it can be remedied by doing a glowplug relearn, but usually that code means itís bad.

Youíre fine, even with a glow plug or two out, even in colder temps.

They can be temperamental, throwing codes for the littlest stuff.
