went home las t weekend and installed my rebuilt ecm. fingers crossed i turned the switch on and the electronics cycled like i had not seen in months:hyper:. started the engine and all was fine. stepped onthe throtle and it responded. i alsmost fell out of the truck:thumb1:. the check engine light went out and out the driveway i went. i've been driving a Dakota with rack and pinnion steering and when i hammered the gas i remembered my steering was not quite the same and held on for dear life, but i could not take my foot of the pedal. she ran great. went back home and started checking things out and my son spots fuel coming from on of the injector lines on the IP. Turned out to be one we didnot tighten when we installed the IP. Of course it was one on the back side and we had to take off half the fuel lines to get to it. That was a small price to pay to drive again. took off to maryland to work, 470 miles, ran beautifully. 20 mpg and ran like a scalded dog. I appreciate all the info i got here and will be posting on future endevors to keep Blue going another 500k. thanks again. I went to advance auto today to use ther scan tool to erase the codes still in the ecm. 2 of the codes they pulled where about problems with my " glow plugs ". we erased the codes and apparenly the glow plugs, and i cycled the switch. the only codes I have now are p done and e done.:woot: thanks to all again

I think those were the codes. I did not really care as long as they went away. 207,500 mostly trouble free miles. nothing major at all just samll stuff. 207,501 both front wheel bearings, IP going out, and the ECM died. Got paid back for the rouble free miles. all new now.
