Riley tackle them one at time to reduce stress.
I took my baby out for a drive and night of entertainment last night. Just to let her know I haven't forgotten her while I am driving a blue oval POC for my work.
The E450 is the hardest driving vehicle I have ever driven. Of course it has something to do with lack of a true maintenance program. the company stays up on fluids , but refuses to get an alignment when installing new tires. Also with over 300,000 miles on the vehicle it still has the original shocks, or at least the skeletons. Airbags are great for supporting the heavy box , if they hold air. They don't. Fix ? Nah other vehicles don't have them so no big deal.
Oil pressure gauge not working, but they won't replace or repair. DOT violation? Hmmm
For those who have driven the class 5-8 you nay understand a little frustration here. But the checks are cashing so I work.2010 Chevy Silverado Z71 ext cab.4x4

DAMN COACH!! I think there was a law passed not long ago that any of those violations are going to start going against you. I know our truck drivers bitch all the time about the lack of money spent to keep the trucks running down the road. Oh and ours run everyday for 2 shifts. Gotta love it!

Beginning of magnaflow cat back install....
Finding humor at the start of my catback exhaust install on my suburban. Couple days ago started spraying bolts with liquid wrench to loosen up. Well, got under there today to give the 2 bolts a test...Hopefully the rest of the project goes better, or this is going to be a long diy project! There should be an attachment....Doug

Could only work on it on thursday and friday. Just got moved to 3rd shift and still getting used the sleeping when its daylight thing. Lets just says its not working and working on the truck was getting frustrating lol. But I ended up calling a buddy to give me a hand and he just poured gas in the throttle body, cranked it a few times and she started right up.

Changed the alternator back to stock hoping to eliminate a whining engine. Didn't work so I took it to a shop where I recently had the transmission done and they said it was the idler pully. I bought the assembly and the pully by itself, just in case. Got the pully off the mount and installed the new pully and put the HD alternator back on. Returned pully assembly, test drove , laid rubber, parked it.
