    Extended crank to start

    For hot temps that's fairly close, withing 10* Hot is normal for me. Cold they needs to be the same. Often times the IAT sensor fails within specification and you get hard starting. A good way to test is to plug the truck in and she will fire right up. The issue is more commonly seen in the CR era, where guys have these issues because the ECM will not throw a code for that.

    Do you have a live date tool? You should compare your ECT and IAT sensors. If you didn't plug your truck in they should read the same temperature at ambiant temperature. And usually they should be within a few degrees of the outside temp if it's early in the morning.

    Not to side track John, but I need to give you a ring about shipping out my valve body to you and have you do a good one over on it while I have my Dodge apart. there's things my auto is doing in D that it doesn't do in manual 1.

    I second this, But your line pressures are all over the place, Idle should be 75 psi, and driving down the road 200psi is very high. How/Why your line pressure cycle from Your getting the GPS code because it is high. I don't doubt its starting in 2nd or even 3rd at this rate. But I'll give Dynamic some time to reply as he knows way more then I do.

    I don't think its any one company per say. I think that anytime you have larger injectors this is a possibility. granted that my truck running stock seems to be fine with smoke and performance. But my start the smoke started right after it dropped pop pressure off. But I didn't know it.

    I wouldn't set them above 300 bar if they are stock injectors. IMO then you run a risk of starting issues. Popping them higher is only useful on larger injectors and its a theory with only 4 members reporting back about using them. The larger the injector the more slippage you can get, I have heard that some guys can set them 10% higher without issue on stock injectors, but then your missing timing.

    Why not ask ACS and see what they say?

    You can buy the cheap nylon line, I just used greese gun hose under there just so it doesn't melt against the exhaust of chaff.

    I believe that altitude, and injector size affect pop pressure and the amount of overage you can go whithout stalling and operational issues. It was a trick I learned from a diesel mechanic I knew who was in his 70's. he said that you can't have a high pressure leak if you loosen the lock bars and the lines. He told me that sometimes if you have the blue lock bars tightened you can't get a good sealing on those high pressure lines, and while you may think your snug plus a 1/8 turn that your really not. He stated that you need to let the parts seat naturally, and not be forced to be in alignment. He said that in 40 years of diesel work he's never had to deal with a high pressure leak from a diesel when doing it that way. He said torquing goes as follows. Injection Pump->high pressure nut->injector side of high pressure nut->Injector hold down bar-> blue lock bars. i will say that since I've started doing this I haven't had any issues with high pressure leaks since. Although i can say that at least our trucks are easier to align, try injectors for a common rail haha.

    When you put the injectors back in did you loosen the blue lock bars before you tightened down on the high pressure nuts? They are to go on snug, and then after you tighten the nuts down then tighten the injector hold down brackets? Have you tried parking the truck downhill to rule out a fuel leak? As for me, I went from 300 bar to 280 in 33,000 miles. I wouldn't doubt that the injectors could be popping off low.

    WOT shift points are suppose to be about 2,800-3,000 rpm for a vp truck, and 2,500 for a Ppump. Do me a favor and follow this article, but don't change anything don't drop the pan. But as Dynamic stated we need information. Your delayed shifting can be caused by a few things, but without some information were lost here. However, your shifts for 1-2 and 2-3 should be around 1800-2200 give or take. Now if you have a programmer like a smarty expect that to play with your settings, and or having a high line pressure without a fooler. Don't make any adjustments but we need to see the line pressures at the accumulator through the test port. grab a 0-300 psi gauge from home depot for the test. It should take you 20 mins to hook up. Don't worry about dropping the pan or anything unscrew the test port and hook up the gauges. We need to see the line pressure.
  12. That's way to hot. My advice is to measure your line pressures first before you adjust things. If you measure and your line pressures low you should turn it up when you have the pan down on your fluid and filter change. The gauge and lines can be had at home depot or Lowes. And should take you 30 mins from start to finish to get it figured out. EDIT: While a bad sensor can cause that, I've always measured my oil at the output line from the transmission, not in the pan.

    Engine stumbles

    See that's where I was wondering if this is related to Injector size. I do believe that popping 75's to 330 bar would post an issue, unlike my 100's or 150s per say. My truck fired right up at 17F without grids. Which has me tossed. You are running 100's or 150's?

    Don't regret it. There's nothing much about it on the other forums. I haven't seen any issues myself, but Maybe that is a mixture of fueling and commanding based on a programmer? I haven't had any issues yet and mine fired right up without grids at 17F out. But That maybe also because of the smarty?

    Dam, I'm happy to hear that. There were great on the phone a few years ago when I spoke to Stanley about it. I had to go back and look to see that there's over 4,000 views on that article.
