Took my truck out to the lake this Sunday and it made me realize I need to do the 6 high mod bad as well as get my Denali head lights and some good low beams.
Need to change the oil today after work as it is majorly overdue.
Before anyone asks no I don't think the dealer knew about the P2563. I have put 400 miles on this truck before it showed up and now it shows up every other time I drive just about. I think the fact the turbo has been sitting for 2 years it has gotten a little stuck. Depression. The other two I just figured the battery might have died or something but I cannot clear them at all, pretty sure I will need to replace the ECM.
Fortunately I can still drive with the codes so it is not a big deal, just is slightly low on power to where I can barely even tell. Just gotta look at the light staring me in the face lol
Most likely yes. You are able to clean the turbo and put it back in which is what I may end up doing, although that is a bandaid fix it should last 20-30 thousand miles.
I am trying to decide between a tech 2 clone and an Autel MK808 for a scan tool to test the vane positions before ripping into the engine.
So based on what I found out I believe the seller sold it right before Covid and it switched between 2 or 3 dealerships during that time through auction or what have you. I am guessing that because of restrictions and prices people just didn't want to buy it. That's my theory anyways. Also the previous owner put like 8k on it in 3 years before that I think.
Interestingly enough the CEL has gone away and my MPG has shot up. Feels like power might be up too.
I had read something on doing an oil change and since this truck didn't get its oil changed for like 3 years my fingers are crossed that my oil change fixed it lol I won't get my hopes up. Today is my last day driving it for a week as I'm out of town for work anyway.
Just from last nights experience... if you do remove the turbo to clean it or anything. Get a new gasket for the turbo return line, or get the upgraded return line.
I was fixing the Y-bridge on mine and when I re-installed the turbo (which my stupid ass didn't realize I would have to remove to get to the Y-bridge) The oil return leaked, a lot... I got lucky and was able to tighten it down a little more using a couple extensions a swivel socket and an endoscope to see what the hell I was doing. Next time I am getting the upgraded return line...
