  • truck surging

    the past few days i have noticed that the truck would surge as if it was running out of fuel or getting to much fuel or something. i really do not know. i figured i could explain it to you guys and maybe figure it out.

    it will idle rough at start up, and at a few min. after start up the truck will rev. up for a few seconds and then return to normal. it may do this two to three times and then stop. then down the road a ways (lets say 5miles) it will do it again, but not rev up as much (maybe becaus it is in drive). then after i get to work it will not do it (work is about 30 miles from the house). it has not given any codes yet.

    are these symptoms of a injector or a glow plug going bad?

    note: i have been off of WVO for about 3 days, and in the process of running some diesel kleen thru the diesel side of the system.

    any ideas would be great.

    thanks

    update:

    the truck gave me a code this morning on the way from work. p2285. it did not surge this morning either. so i went to auto store and used their obd II and read the code and bought some of the diesel kleen suppliment. then later that day i had to do some running around and the chech engine light went out. so i drove it to work.

    the next question is, will that ICP sensor still need to be replaced. and could it have been a stuck injector all along?

    thanks for the input.

      Off the top of my head, i don't know what p2285 is, I would have to look it up.
      Are you saying that is an ICP code? And if so, which one exactly?

        Okay i did some checking and with what you described and that code, you need to replace the ICP sensor. Its a bear to get to and i personally had mine done at the dealer because of that but you may be able to get to it yourself.
        They aren't cheap either but you might get it at NAPA or autozone for less than the dealer sells them.

            Better do it sooner than later, it can leave you on the side of the road.

                changed the sensor and cleaned the oil out of the connector, and everything is doing great.
