  1. Thanks Mike. I figured my injectors are shot. currently saving the money to have DAP build me a set. Tim @mopar1973man - does the MX obdlink allow you to look at engine timing??
  2. the motor just sounds different to me since Ive been driving it this week. It is a daily driver during summer but I try to park it in the winter due to NYS salt roads. I don't remember it sound like it does during the summer. Tim
  3. Good afternoon everyone, This past week my vehicle situation has changed and I have been driving my 99 daily. Since I have not driven it much this winter in the cold I don't think it sounds right. I can hear a knock or a rattle noise when driving it and think it is either a fuel knock or timing knock and hopefully not something else. The noise does not increase with rpms, but it is there. I believe the injectors are stock with 174k miles and the truck has a Quadzilla XZT+ chip. Both videos were taken with the chip in the "timing" setting. I have turned the chip to the off setting, the noise is there but faint. I have included a couple video clips, what do you guys think? https://www.facebook.com/510913837/videos/10157061274603838/?l=8449699577610092840 https://www.facebook.com/510913837/videos/10157061269128838/?l=5694756621128741884

    Fuel Pressure Question

    So I drove it home tonight in 22°F weather with a real feel of 12°F. I let truck warm up 5 minutes in high idle mode and fuel pressure was a steady 18psi. While cruising at 55mph FP was 16psi. I did a 40mph-70mph run and FP held at 15psi WOT. Not sure why it would change other than it was 30°F when I went to work today. Tim

    Fuel Pressure Question

    I did a small test pull from WOT 30mph to 60mph and psi went from 21psi to 17psi. Ill give it a few days and see if it settles in. I will be driving the truck for the next week as a daily. Tim

    Fuel Pressure Question

    Good evening everyone, Small update - I let the truck warm up in high idle before work and when I got in the truck to leave for work after about 10 mins the FP Gauge read 21 psi. Tomorrow I will let the truck warm up and reset the FP to 17-18psi. Thanks, Tim

    Fuel Pressure Question

    Moparman, this is what I did. I did it 7x full in/full out. Then I set screw to about half way, started truck then set pressure to 18psi while idling.

    Fuel Pressure Question

    Good morning everyone, My wifes suburban blew brake lines this morning so I have to drive truck to work as she needs the winter rat to get to work. I spent a few minutes this morning and screwed the adjustment screw on regulator in and out several times then set fuel pressure to 18psi while idling. I work 2nd shift so I'll see how it does this afternoon. I also reflashed the XZT+ with a less aggressive tune that still has the high idle feature. Hopefully this fixes my problems. Tim

    Moparman - Thank you! Glad you are feeling better also! Praying for you and a fast recovery! Tim

    Fuel Pressure Question

    MoparMan - What did you use again for your tubing? I assume i could use a compression fitting at he end of the snubber then a compression fitting to the appropriate adapter for the sensor? Thanks, Tim

    Fuel Pressure Question

    I have a snubber valve that is hooked into "T" then the gauge sensor. I am going to look over everything hopefully this weekend. Tim

    Fuel Pressure Question

    dripley - I have turned the pump up about a month ago and set FP to 17-18psi at idle. all my gauges are Isspro EV2 electric gauges. It has been reading 17-18psi with no issues until the past couple days. I drove truck last night and it was a steady 14.5psi cruising at 55mph. I noticed the FP difference this morning when I bumped motor over to see if it was reading 14.5psi without engine running, only to see gauge read 16psi. I then started truck up and gauge read 14.5psi. I have parked truck until I can look at it later this weekend. Tim

    Fuel Pressure Question

    It is the style were I can adjust the FP - I adjusted it about a month ago and set it for 17-18spi at idle. Ill make sure the jamb nut is tight this weekend. Tim

    Fuel Pressure Question

    dripley, The pump is just over 1 year old. I installed it 12/2017 and this is my only issue with it thus far. I am going to park it until I can check volts this weekend. It is just odd that the psi would differ 2 psi running and not running. I don't want to hurt 6 month old vp44 with lackluster fuel pressure or dirty fuel. Tim
