IDM codes. I'm an idiot

Some of you may know, some of you may have suspected, but it's now official. I'm an idiot. But on the outside chance this may help someone else, I'll share my story.

Pulled the valve covers off the wifes truck and re-torqued the rocker arm pedestal bolts to 20 ft-lbs, and the injector hold down bolts to 120 in-lbs because it made so much of a difference in my truck. Turned out most of her injector bolts were loose, so that's a good thing. Also did the quarter shim while I was in there to prevent that dreaded 1316 code from rearing it's ugly head.

Put everything back together, started it up, and she said I've got a CEL. Engine had a slight miss to it, so I plugged in the AE and guess what?

P1316.

Ohmed the 9 pin connectors and had a bad reading on number 3, so off came the passenger valve cover again. (I actually think this one's easer to pull this one since you don't have to mess with the intake, 42 pin connector and CCV)

I took pictures when I first got the VC off, so apparently I somehow did this while re-intalling the valve cover.




I somehow managed to unclip the wire from the #3 injector and it slid down out of the injector solenoid.

Moral of the story, if you pull your valve covers and still have an issue, or a new one shows up, it may not be the UVCH connector. You might have bumped something along the way.

We're still trying to figure this out. I've done it on trucks 99 - 02 ranging from 145k to 260k. All of them had at least 2 injector hold down bolts a little loose. Every truck has sounded better while driving after doing this. I plan on checking my truck again somewhere around the 45k range to see if anything has loosened up.

It's funny how you don't think your truck sounds bad before you do it, but you think it does sound better after.

01 250 CC SWB Lariat Black with 285's on it. She seems to have all of ya'll beat hands down in the PMS department. Can't seem to wait on getting anything done. Tomorrow we're going to try and tackle some door lock actuators and the overhead display thing.

We met Tony Wildman last week (he lives fairly close to us) and she's getting rather impatient for a chip. I need to get a tranny cooler, VB & some gauges first, but she doesn't seem to understand why I haven't done that yet.

And having a 19 year old daughter that has the other kind of PMS... you can imagine what it's like at my house.

I'm not looking forward to the door lock actuators tomorrow. For some reason, I find it easier to pull the VC's than get those stupid things out.

Instead of buying the updated shims or harness from International or Ford, you can grind the end off of a quarter and it is the right width and thickness to prevent the connector under the valve cover from coming undone.





It costs about 50 cents to equip your truck like this
