Well your rear window not working has nothing to do with your mechnical working of the motor or drivetrain. I'd check the switch and the connection first and make sure your getting the voltage to the window motor.

is it the same quad relay in the drivers rear as what is in the newer trucks?



as for the engine stuff. have you checked your compression yet on the cylinders? and what engine do you have?

I really had no clue. i thought that the widow regulator helped with gas mileage. i was asking two different questions. anyways, it only works with the key, so i should check the connection first and then check the one in the back.

the engine is a 22re that runs better than my old one. but im just wondering if an inch bigger tire, with no lift gets worse MPG than a 4 year older lifted truck w/ more miles.

also keep in mind that the gear ratios could be different and so while the tire size is smaller the gear ratio could be severely off effecting your actual miles traveled..... my speedo and odo are 10% off with the bigger tires on(i actually go more miles than my truck registers) figure out what your axle ratio's are and go from there....

Not sure yet, but ive only gone about 250 miles and ive spent 70 on gas...Where did you get your aftermarket switch? and i guess i need to check my axle code on yotatech when i get home.

I know you said "No leaks" but.... Does it leak?

I had that problem with a Bronco once. Come to find out a few loose stones had gotten in between the tank and the tank skid. The little pebbles acted like sand paper, putting a few tiny holes in the tank. I could never "see" it leak, but then one day, it was like a dam opening up, that precious, flammable fluid was all over the place.

You might snoop around a bit see if it is leaking any where.


the math: 70bucks divided by 2.90 a gallon, equals 24 gallons of gas.
250 miles divided by 24 gallons, equals 10.41 miles to the gallon........ You sure you dont have 2 to 4 extra cylinders in there


good luck.

Thanks, im almost positive because i cant smell anything at all. im getting the valves done tommorrow( i tried and failed horribly) and im gonna throw in the header i got and hopefully it will run better, i also need to clean out the engine its grimy. any suggestions? I had to go threw this with my 85, but hopefully i can get it fixed before the wonderful gas prices get me.

Alright... a little stressed, but overall good. I think I am going to keep my multimeter for reasons unknown to me yet. I've kept a few tools, including my cordless drill and oil change tools. But if I decide to part with it I'll let ya know... Hope life's been treating ya well, maybe someday I'll have 4WD again and can join ya on the Jenny/Spring Creek runs... if I don't get a tow rig...

so is it actually running ok or is it hesitating, or just running great and shitty gas mileage, lol. if the last is your case lay off the skinny pedal .

you cant floor a 22re all the time and expect to get good gas mileage. if you drive like a grandma then you should see things durastically improve

Anyone got ideas for sluggish get up from a light? i think i might have an exhaust leak, but not sure its sluggish until like 15 mph then it catches on and wants to go. and the occasional wobble at 40-45 and 68-72. i know weird, and vibrations while braking abruptly? the pads are good all around and the calipers were clear.

THANKS

Or a clicking noise with slight throttle in gear only, no matter what gear? it runs great and i just adjusted the valves, along with a new head. what kinda oil is good for a 187xxx mile truck? im getting some 30s here soon so gas will get better as well. i usually used 10w40, till the synthetics i got only were 10w30. does it really matter?
