    Rattlesnake Fire, Idaho - 2018

    Fires have managed to travel from my place to nearly out to New Meadows along the ridge tops. It can be seen running below Pollock mountain tonight on the way home that is roughly 10 miles south of me.

    Alternator Volts

    Typical normal range can be as low as 13.2 VDC to as high as 14.8 VDC. Typically most will see close to 14 volts. The battery temp sensor will change the charge voltage also bad batteries with shorted plates will produce more heat so the charge voltage typically is lower.
  3. Somehow the 4th gen truck and this OBDII research I personally think is going to be the next generation Quadzilla...

    How much to charge?

    Answering machine at home is off. My voicemail on my cellphone is full. Now my WiFi number is really cool since its setup with Google Voice it sends me an email in text form of the entire phone call plus the phone number. The part I hard is a person calls 10 minutes of blah blah blah... Then at the very end run through there phone number extremely fast. You hear maybe 2 number. Now you got to play that message over and over again. I've wasted an entire hour to crap like that. Why typically I don't worry about voicemail or answering machines if you really want me you call again. My WiFi number is the only one that is really good about making text back with a readable phone number.

    OEM alloy 8 x 16" wheels ......

    If you are really hard set on the alloy wheels or any aftermarket wheels make sure to get the right offset and width for your truck. My OEM alloy wheel failed the same way 3 wheels had multiple cracks in them which any crack is unsafe. This why I never opted fo factory alloy wheel again all them have the same issue with cracking. Then when I went to aftermarket I got the wrong offset and ended up with road slingers that slung all the mud and road salt on the side windows which made it unsafe t odrive on the interstate in a mere 10-20 miles you had to get off the highway to clean the side windows to even see. So I went back to the factory steel/chrome 16x7 proper offset and fit my 235's at the time perfect. Near future will be 245's.

    Power Steering Pump

    Bingo. Sludge is really hard on pumps and will cause it to break to thick in viscosity small shaft can't handle the load. I'm going to have the oldest power steering pump that is OE.
  9. No. ECM does a 50% duty cycle pulsing the power on and off. Heat soak is not an issue a long as you never see P0168 the the VP44 is overheated. Sounds like batteries, cables and/or starter is worn out.

    Power Steering Pump

    Maybe debris bound it up?
  11. Too high of cranking pressure. 7 to 12 PSI is normal for starting.

    OEM alloy 8 x 16" wheels ......

    I went back to factory steel 16x7 wheels. I've been through 2 sets of alloy wheels.

    Default tune is rather limited. You need to build your own tune or dive into the download area and get a tune. Either way most of our tunes don't smoke. My daily tune is defueled pretty good on the starting edge for the fuel map.
  14. Make sure to still test the alternator because excessive AC noise can still damage the ECM all over again.
