I welcome and encourage all responses.Not to be the guy that keeps piping in-but pulling the transmission in a driveway isn’t to bad-one thing I’d recommend is find/borrow/buy a good transmission jack- with the truck up on jackstands, the transmission gets pretty far away from the ground and a regular floor jack gets real sketchy. And the exhaust Y pipe will get in your way
Get all the bugs worked out then work a tune and CAI.September’s issue with the truck was the EVAP purge valve. Was throwing codes on and off about an evap leak. Already had a brand new fuel cap….. didn’t see any hoses that were bad. Code came back to stay so I tested the purge valve and it was no good. $100 later at AutoZone, and the “service engine” light is off, and the code is cleared.
All in all, the truck is treating my daughter well, and she loves driving it! I’d really love to restore this once she’s done with it! We’ll see where that goes.
