    I’ll make this quick and simple, need some help. Has anyone experienced this? What could it be? 2002 LB7 EFI live Not much done to engine when I start the truck cold, there’s a weird cricket like noise coming from back of engine/tranny area. I can’t pinpoint it. This noise seems to go away...
  2. 04.5-05 LLY Duramax Powertrain
    While driving the truck I can be on throttle cruising at let's say 12k at the rail. If there's a stop sign coming up I'll let off throttle and the rail pressure will stay at the cruising pressure (12k in this example) and then start creeping up (so demanded is about 4-5k and actual will be...

    When my truck gets to 170 degrees it has a rough idle in park or nuetral. Put it in gear and it calms back down to normal.

  6. 01-04.5 LB7 Duramax Powertrain
    I have an 02 Duramax which is completely stock. It recently started running rough but only for a few seconds each time I let off the accelerator just about the time it gets to an idle. Then it settles down and idles just fine. When revving up or at highway speed, it is just fine. It also...

  8. 11-16 LML Duramax Powertrain
    I've always heard that diesels just love running. And that leaving them idling is good for it. But I recently was told that the lml's don't like to idle very long. A local diesel mechanic for a stealership told me that. I'd like to hear what any mechanics say about it and really what anyones...
