Well....after cleaning everything that I could possibly think of.... intake cleaned, iac cleaned, throttle body cleaned, maf cleaned, tps checked out, swapped plugs to new Autolite Coppers, changed oil, seafoamed intake, gas tank, and oil, swapped serp belt to new gatorback, checked plug wires, checked coil.......pressure washed entire underside of the truck, including cleaning the engine. Changed fluids.....rear end, trans, tcase, crankcase.
Anyway....I can honestly say, she's running as good, or even better than she did before. No blowby, awesome compression...I think i'm good.
Only thing that still needs to have attention is the check engine light, and I'm pretty sure I killed the idler pulley.....she wines pretty annoyingly.
Still got the trans problem...damn 1L54's weakness.
I want to thank all yall for your help. I sure do love this site & this community. Thanks again!!
