Hello from Midland/Lubbock TX

Recommended Posts

Guest Grouchy281

Hello all, Just bought my first diesel (and truck for that matter). I've previously been driving a 2008 Ford Mustang GT. It's time for the Mustang to turn into more of a track/project car, so I needed a new truck to drive/tow with. A little background about me. I joined the Army a year after HS and did my 4 years and got out. I'm a currently a student at Texas Tech University studying Petroleum Engineering. I have one more year left... :smart: Woo! Description of the truck is in the signature. Right now it has a drop-in K&N that the previous owner installed. I have a BHAF ordered and on the way with a black cover. Transmission still shifts solid with moderate acceleration, and every once in awhile it will wonder in and out of the TC/Lock-up when driving easy around 47-50 mph. I came to this forum from CFs, after I saw a lot of links to what I was looking for forwarded to this site and MoparMan's write-ups. I look forward to learning more about diesel performance/maintenance. Questions: I'm not sure how to find out if the truck has different injectors (or what size they are), or what I can do easily/cheap to increase the performance reliability. I am also not sure where the "puke bottle" is, and how I can see if has been removed/modified on my truck. I can post pictures if needed. :thumb1: Thanks!

Thanks. I didn't know that about the injectors. I'll have to look again for that puke bottle. I'm guessing the benifit of removal is to keep oil from spewing around the engine bay? The truck has zero blow-by. :thumb1:

welcome from nc. you wil like it here. my puke bottle is still on mine and it is messy down below the bottle. if you go off raod and tilt the truck downhill enough it will blow oil out of that line and it will really gum everything up. blocks up your radiator, intercooler and what ever the oil wants to get into. again welcome.

Welcome! Looks like we'll be headed to your state soon to open an affiliate in San Antonio. Texas rocks!We just extend that breather tube down and get rid of the bottle, keeps the mess out of the radiator.
