 Trials and Tribulations but goes faster now...

Ah the saga of owning a vehicle. Since I moved, the old F250 wasn't garaged. It hates the cold mornings. So I finally took it in. They said the glow plug module was busted so that explains the hard starts. Also the exhaust pressure sensor and tube was plugged. So fixed that too.

Now it won't start in the cold, well, it will eventually but worse than before. But when it does get running, it has that old power back like when it was younger. Plus I bought a superchip unit for it. Oh, she really gets up and goes. Nothing like 7.3L of turbo charged US metal to get a truck moving...

Now if it would only start in the cold...

You are welcome to use my Ford tool. (a hammer!)

Seriously though, the only time I have had a problem starting the Cummins was when the fuel gelled (forgot to put in Power6). Luckily I don't have that headache no mo'.

My '03 Ram Cummins handles nothing like my old '99.

EW; Put on the gloves, it sounds like another "Church Picnic" looming on the horizon. I'll jump in quick and jump out quick. Just buy a Silverado and enjoy watching the tow trucks make a living hauling in the dead Fords and Dodges. I'll go to the nearest neutral corner now and wait for the referee's decision. Frank.

As my 20-year-old helper who made an astute observation said, "If it has ti__s (ahem...breasts) or wheels, you're gonna have problems with 'em"

"Amen to preacher EW!"

Same can be said about money. Women and vehicles are almost guaranteed money losers. No doubt about it.

But... the alternatives aren't so good.
