Not a dang thing except reading my forums today. Had freezing rain this am. Had a thick coating on everything. My truck is outside/the trailblazer, Never did thaw out. I do sign and lighting service in a 72' bucket truck.
Thanks Mooseman.. Mine was brownish , not terrible. It smelled ok too. Mine is doing better than the ops. Sorry to hijack. I love this place. You all have the best advice on the planet on these trucks, or any vehicle for that matter.
Good timing for me... Mine has been taking a long time to lockup and seems varies a lot. I just had mine flushed at 148K The mechanic said it was very thick. He also added a can of BG additive. Still have not done the filter. If I have a shop do it what else can they do without a teardown...
Thanks for the offer Reprise. I got 2 now. The snakes hit 2 of my cars. My wifes CTS also had water in it 2 weeks prior. The worst part is not knowing who. I don't know who would hate on me , or is somebody jealous cause I have decent cars. IDK
It was full of water. Some sick person poured at least a gallon of water in my tank. They got both my vehicles 12 days apart. Sitting in front of the sign shop I work at. During the day the only people are out back building signs. They just lock the front door and customers have to walk in the...
I need to do more reading haha You mentioned Bluetooth software.
Ok I got torque lite. Hopefully I can find the adapter locally. Will torque lite check fuel pressure? Right now it only has one screen showing accel. Looks like it wants the obd adapter.
Seems like fuel pump. It will start and idle at 1000 rpm smooth for a few seconds and then just gets worse. I pulled the purge valve/solenoid near the tank. It starts out open and closes when I apply 12v. I unhooked the O2 sensor in the manifold. It jumps to 20 ohms and drops slowly. Between d...
Also I think I cleaned the iat sensor not the maf. It is the closest one to the air filter. It just sticks into the airflow. Not a screen. Hope I did not screw it up.
Does my truck have MAF? getting confused
I hope you all had a good turkey day.. My 06 4.2 died Wed after work.
I pulled the codes and not sure where to start.
I got 0135 heater performance sensor 1
0030 HO2S heater control circuit sensor 1
0455 evap emission system large leak
0463 fuel level sensor high...
Good read and pics. My last rebuild was a smallblock chevy. :) The more I read about this Atlas it is crazy.. I am going to keep my oil oh so clean .. haha You do have some of the best help on the planet right here looks like..
Glad I looked this up. I thought for sure it was in the neck going to the top hose ... Mine works great. Finally straight up on the gauge. And I finally breaking 18 mpg on most tanks. Use to be 17.5 now 18.5..
Maybe not be related but when my purge solenoid went out it would not start right after getting fuel. Experts here will have to correct me but there is 2 of them, one is not a solenoid. One is near the tank/charcoal canister and one on the side of the engine. About halfway down on the drivers...
Still home recovering from hospital stay. Wife got a job, yay. Thinking I should pull the TBlaze out and give her the garage since now she is working and I am off for at least 2 more weeks. When we were last both working mama got the garage.. sooo :)
I ended up in the hospital sun nite. Thought I had pneumonia after an xray after at my doc. Turns out it is/was fluid between my lung and ribs.. 2 litres. Yea no wonder been feeling like crap for 2 mo. So here I sit.. I DO feel better. :)
This thread reads a little like an add. ;) sorry.. But very informative . Good to see stuff made in USA. Rubbermaid is 20 mi. from me. And someone makes jeans in Oklahoma. Can't remember the name right now..
