    24 Valve ECM overheating?

    Have you tried just to power the relays with another key on source, and see if it happens. Just do your fuel pump and see if it still does it. I use a key on power wire, not the ECM wire for it. No issues as of yet.

    24 Valve ECM overheating?

    Have you figured it out?

    04 F250 Cummins swap

    Well time for an update. All I can say is GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY!!😃. This build was amazing and fun, although I had some issues along the way, it was worth every penny. I have changed the injectors to DAP 7x.012 and also put a ATS fummins torque converter in. everything else is the same. So far I have put 30k miles on it, towing light and heavy, city, and hiway miles. The only thing I'm having a hard learning curve with is the tuning. But slowly I'm learning. I have used the tune builder on here and then did some tweaking to it. Again thanks for all the help.
  4. I think you would have to p pump it. Not really sure though as the pcm controls other parts of the truck.

    bucking in drive and OD

    First and foremost let me say this site is awesome and second I'm a dumbass. So in my signature you'll see I put this motor in my F250 and had to build a wiring harness so I contacted the guy that I bought the engine from because it was supposed to come with the harness and he sent me one. Evidently it wasn't an O2 harness or a 01 so it had a crankshaft position sensor plug which is exactly like the Cam sensor plug so when I looked up the wiring to do my harness I reference what wires were in there instead of going to the 2002 wiring harness for the engine at this site. Well after ordering a computer and putting it in and still not working I decided to rip my harness completely out and print out the schematics so I could go through it. Well what do you know I found the issue I didn't have the cam position sensor hooked up so this whole time since I've been driving the truck it has never worked. Well I redone my harness, reinstalled it, and put my old computer back in. Works perfect so now I'm stuck with a new computer or I can just send it back and lose 50%. Either way it was sort of an expensive lesson. So I guess my question is now with the cam sensor never hooked up and the ECM never reading it then how did my tack on the Quadzilla work? Was everything based off of the vp44's own timing? Now I hope this is the last bug I've got to chase down. I've only got two other things to do and that's to hook up my AC and do the cruise control. Thanks for all the replies and all the help I really do appreciate it and my knowledge is vastly growing on this motor.

    This past weekend, I put the stock ones back in and it did it bad, then I have a set of DDP 125's and I put them in and it still did it. It only throws the one code, so I just ordered a reman ECM. All I can say is we'll see.

    So I've been dealing with this all week and today I hook it up to my trailer that's normally hooked up to it every day and it's not doing it but if I unhook it and drive it without the trailer load on it and start bulking so I don't know what the deal is. But it's still there it's just not as prevalent

    Well I went and bought a new CPS and installed it. Took all wiring loose from the alternator and the charging cable loose from the battery. Went for a drive and it was still doing it. I really want to just drive it off a cliff at this point, and would if not for all the other work I have put into this conversion. Now looking at the schematics for the ECM, the only thing that is left in the circuit is the ECM. Now when the truck is cold, it will not do it. Once it is warmed up then that's when the issue starts. Sometimes worse than others. When I pull the codes, it only gives me the p0341. So I guess I'm going to try and get another ECM. All my grounds are good, I rechecked them and double checked them.

    So my theory is to buy a sensor and put it in. Unhook the alternator and drive it. If it is good, then I know it's the alternator. Now I just got off the phone with Leece-Neville alternators and I asked if they tested for ac noise, he said never heard of it. Now XDP carries this brand, so what brand would you recommend? Thanks for the help.

    Okay so yesterday afternoon I left off putting everything back together I was so frustrated so this morning driving it has really gotten bad but yesterday when I was driving it really didn't buck. but the code to keep coming back every time I reset it so I'm just wondering if the alternator has messed up this sensor and if so my only option is to buy another alternator and have it tested before I buy it and another sensor I'm willing to try anything right now

    I purchased it at Napa. Think it was a BWD sensor.

    Ok, so today I pulled everything off the alternator, and it still did it. So I took the wiring harness off and tested the wires and they ohmed out at 0 pin to pin. So the next step I checked the voltage on the 5v pin and it was there. So I did some more research and my understanding is that when a closed portion of the cam gear passes over the sensor it closes the loop and let's the 5v through. Then when the air gap passes it goes back to an open circuit. So with this I took the original one and wired it up on my bench and supplied 5v to it. As I passed a metal object in front of it the circuit closed and allowed the voltage to pass through. Then when the object was pulled away sometimes it would go back to 0 and other times it would stay closed till I passed 3 or 4 times. So I checked the new one and it was doing the exact same thing. So I am at a loss, and the only other thing I know to do is to buy another sensor and bench test it to see what I come up with. It still throws the CPS code.

    Well it lasted all but 1 1/2 days. Now the bucking is back. Some where I saw a trouble shooting guide, so I guess I will try that step by step to find the issue. I wouldn't think that the new sensor went out that quick, but who knows.

    I cleared the codes and drove it today, still acting up. So I checked the codes again and they came back. Of course the heater grid will always be there. So I called around and got a cam sensor, and installed it when I got home this afternoon. What a PITA to get to. So I took it for a drive after I reset the codes, and it drove great. Now I didn't drive the 30 miles like I do 1 way to work, so we will really see in the morning. It also seems to idle better and doesn't surge when I put it in gear, I thought that was a byproduct of doing the conversion. Hopefully, and I have all my fingers and toes crossed, that I can enjoy it now. Thanks all that replied.
