  1. replaced camshaft position sensor and problem solved, just my luck it crapped out at the same time the vac pump did and i found out after vac pump is back in. What a tough lil spot to get into -_-
  2. nothing is jumping out as obvious so far tho, hoping someone has had a similar situation and resolved just took it for a drive -starts right up -tach works -lack of some power -bluesmoke still -turbo whistle is more noticeable than normal -idle around 850rpm think it was around 750 normally -some occasional knocking sound -code p1690 still present
  3. ya im used to bluesmoke for maybe a min or so after first fire up, but im straight smoking out the neighborhood now I havent really started that yet, im under the assumption it has to be something more obvious than that considering it ran fine even when i limped it home with no power steering or power brakes. Im thinking it has to be something i could've knocked loose when i was replacing the pumps or along those lines
  4. really need some help with this code/ rough idling/ blue smoke issue Truck ran totally fine before vac pump sheared off input shaft ears. its never thrown a code or check engine in its life with 190k it sat for about 2 months due to me starting a new job and not needing the truck for work I started the truck a couple of time during that duration just for love until i pulled the vac/ps pump 2 weeks ago put it all back together and fired it up to have those symptoms listed above really need my rig back in order, got laid off
  5. Also it blows blue smoke, the vacuum pump gear has nothing to do with the timing correct?
  6. will get a better video today, but idle pops up in rpm slightly and weird clunking noise that sounds similar to clutch trying to engage or something I just went through the whole injector ordeal they are good approx 80k miles on them all new rings
  7. Any ideas why the truck would run like this after replacing vac and power pumps?

  9. ya that's what i did essentially Just the long way lol
  10. Wish i would thought of taking the switch from the CTM ground, less wire and soldering but oh well. I like that solution IBM but I also like the option to arm the alarm with the horn for parking in sketchy areas.
  11. Does the horn work when the alarm goes off though?

  13. I'm gonna get a lot of hate on this post but here was my solution, budget friendly, single parent 2 kids. I went with LED bulbs, and aftermarket housings. I achieved all this under $200 and have a good cut-off, I do have some dark spots but the overall brightness trumps my other halogen attempts. What I did was find a LED bulb that has the diodes at the same measurement or with-in millimeters of where the stock halogen filament was located. Tested light scatter with some buddies and have never received a flash from on coming traffic. I can also see at night again.
  14. Necro bump.... Thought I would add another solution to this problem since my foil double wrapped CTM was still giving me 3 long honks upon unlocking. For the last year or so I just pulled the horn fuse But......I live and work in Seattle, home of the worst drivers in the country, I NEED MY HORN So I came up with this solution....in cab switch from the fuse box under the hood, turn off at home at night, turn in the morning when I leave, neighbors don't hate me, stupid drivers get the honk......profit
