Thank you.The CKPS is not in a water passage, so that's not it. Hard to tell from the photo, but is the drip coolant or water? How much is it leaking? Puddle on the floor leaking?
Many thanks1. A wet CKP (either from rain or coolant) can malfunction.
2. Even without a cowl, no rain water should have gotten down near the CKP. Was anything else in the engine bay wet?
3. If the liquid you're seeing on the CKP is in fact coolant, you probably have a HG leak. This is what happened on my '03 D2 and it was the coolant that killed my sensor.
Would you direct me...Where can I find this coupon...That's great !!!If you do end up needing a new CKP it's really not a big issue - it's a cheap part that (for the most part) is pretty easy to get to. The plug is a bit of a pain but nothing too serious.
AdvanceAutoParts.com has the CKP listed for $59.99 - however if you use one of their coupon codes for 30% off it's like $42 total. You can pick it up at a local store within just a couple days.
Thanks. I'll be changing the CKPS...and Ill put a detector...Just a clarification. Have you started the truck in the last 17 mon? The leak may be tough to track down without starting it. I would replace the CKPS and put leak detector in the coolant, start it and see if you can trace the leak from there.
I did pressed it in different occasions, but not certain if the key has to be in the ignition on the on position; also when checking the relays does the ignition key has be on too?Did you try to reset the inertia (XYZ) switch? It's a small unit with a rubber-covered button on the passenger's side of the firewall. It's designed to kill the fuel pump in the event of a crash or a rollover - oftentimes it gets tripped during a HG job.
Just push it a few times and see if it resets. If it is tripped there will be no power to the pump relay so it'll act as if the pump is dead.
So far:Thank you...
This is what I did:
-I open the fuel pump cleaned everything on top there and banged on it with a rubber hammer.
-I tested the Fuel pump relay and Im getting a light on in just one of the four corners.
- Truck started ones before I changed the CPS...then the next day it didn't, so I went ahead and change the CPS.
-I haven't reinstalled back the tip that closes the Scherer valve.. Which I will do next.. I just have huge hands waiting for help.
-The truck is starting now every time and only giving one code: P0308...I let it run and It goes to the middle of the temp gage ...does not go higher but when it does I turn it off...never on for more than when it comes to the middle temp.
The mystery water drip still there...
Is dripping from the hoses that go back from the passenger side to the back of the truck. I cannt make any since of this drip
The reason is water is cause I just finished a complete top overhaul:
Machined Heads, Valve job with New Bolts. New chain with oil pump gears. Rebuilded steering pump. All the gaskets and hoses are new including oil separator...Also cleaned the fuel injectors, with battery method.
Got a 180 Thermostat. Wrapped the exhausts with silicone tape and sprayed it with 2000 degree paint.
I'm running distilled water to find any leaks before I put the coolant in.
I also put Chevron high detergent oil 10/30 for engines over 75K miles....
My next step is change the oil to 10/40 conventional with Marvel Mystery oil...to see if it helps with the P0308 code.
Any other Ideas are welcome ...
Specially about that drip
Thank you for your time and help.
ThanksMy guess is the water is coming from the timing cover gasket. Pull the pan and pressure test, should be easy to verify.
Many Many ThanksPull the oil pan and pressurize the cooling system to see where the water is coming from. However, I don't think there's any need to verify after looking at the photos.
Coolant travels in and out of the water pump through passages in the front cover. If not sealed properly, the water runs right down into the oil pan.
