Found On Road Dead

So my SMB went TU. CEL came on. Called AAA. IPR had gone MIA. Fixed PDQ.

OMG,what a PITA. FWIW, at least it probably won't happen again soon. Then again, YMMV.

WTF, that like being USCWAP. I hate that when that happens. Lucky you were on the road rather than in the backcountry.

Re: Found On Road Dead

BTW, EOT was too high compared to ECT, so I had them replace the oil cooler. Big difference. Instead of 15-25 over ECT, EOT is 0-6 over where it should be. Also had them install a Bulletproof EGR cooler even though it didn't need it. WTF, it's only money.

Re: Found On Road Dead

Had the oil cooler and EGR cooler done within the last month. A touch under $3K for the (improved) Ford OEM cooler, and the Bullet Proof Diesel EGR cooler. This was not at a Ford dealer, but a diesel specialty place.

Included a coolant change. I did provide my own Amsoil filters and oil.
