I just had my 99 psd's oil changed today at the dealer and it cost $68.00
and that included tax. I think you really got Ripped off. I usually do it
myself at a fraction of the cost, but I had the truck in for the new Air box
and figured it would look good for the service record to have it done this
time.

The gaskets attach to the bottom of the doors and face inward, if you look,
you should see a few holes drilled in the door.

Good question, that may be the missing link, they were on my 4x4 from the
factory, and when offroading, they are a necessity. I clogged mine up with
mud so badly that when it froze, I ripped the gaskets off when opening the
door. I can only imagine the mess that would have ended up in the cab if
they weren't there.

I went to the dealer today to pick up my truck which had been in for a few
TSB's. One of them was TSB 99-6-4 which finally (after getting the earlier
one done already) makes mine like the 99.5 style. It also seemed to get
rid of the louder whistling sound that appeared with the first air box fix.
Part # F81Z-9B249-BBKIT-MODULE
Part # XC3Z-9K635-AAAIR CLNR KIT
They also changed the Fuel regulator as stated by TSB 98-17-16 even though
they stated that they could not verify a problem with it.
I had asked them to check all the Turbo bolts too, as one was actually all
the way out and just hanging there when I brought it in. This was there
response:
"Inspected Turbo & could not verify any bolts falling out. Checked for bolt
tightness. All tight. Road Tested & only heard normal turbo whine/whistle."
I opened the hood at the dealers to check this and guess what? The bolt that
was out, was now in and tight! Sounds kind of silly to me, why didn't they
just write that?
Well, I am happy to have my truck back, funny how you can miss a truck!
