  1. 6.5L Diesel Engine
    All I know is that maybe 60-90 seconds after the engine running, I start to hear a noise that I’m unsure was ther beforehand. Just did an oil change and used correct oil with correct AC filter, and oil is reading correct. Will post a video- the beginning is normal but later on after I come back...
  2. 6.5L Diesel Engine
    So I noticed at idle my truck (1999 6.5 vin F) has this rattling sound that seems to be coming from the drivers side. I don’t believe it used to make this noise before it sounds like a metal in metal rattling and it is fairly loud. I’ve looked under the hood for anything maybe hitting something...

  6. 6.5L Diesel Engine
    So I’m buying my second 6.5 today and they guy I’m buying it from says that he keeps snapping starter bolts on it and it needs a new turbo so he doesn’t want to keep putting the time into it to figure it out (his loss my gain) so I snagged this beautiful 94 k1500 with the 6.5 for dirt cheap at...

    Hello! I have a 1998 Chevrolet k3500, 6.5l turbo diesel. From my understanding ive come to find out the PMD needs replacement. (I'm still new to these diesels). I know you should re-locate it elsewhere because of heating issues. But I see that I already have a FSD, heat sync mounted on top of...

  12. 6.5L Diesel Engine
    I just bought this truck 2 days ago it started rough but I didn’t care because the guy i was buying it off of said it was just the glow plugs (I’ve never owned a diesel but am relatively good at working on vehicles so it didn’t seem like a problem) later on to realize he didn’t know anything...

    1999 VIN F K2500 DS4 Injection pump So I replaced my injection pump and need help with the timing. I’m using a LAUNCH X431 scan tool.

    My 92 k2500 6.5 starts hard after it sits for over an hour. the longer it sits the longer it takes to start. I replaced the lift pump but it didn't change anything, It will still crank for 10-30 seconds before it starts. None of the fuel lines are wet and theres no visible leaks. Lately theres...

    I drive a 1999 k2500 everything is stock as far as I know. The PMD I believe had just been replaced by the guy I bought it from (roughly 2 months ago). I was driving home from work yesterday and I was lightly on the throttle and next thing I know the whole truck shut off. So far it’s only...

    I have my truck back together after doing head gaskets and a whole bunch of other things. During disassembly the oil dipstick tube broke to the point of FUBAR including at the fitting on the oil pan, i replaced the oil pan as well. I need to figure out an aftermarket solution for a dipstick tube...
  20. 6.5L Diesel Engine
    Can somebody please tell me where this goes. I just finished up head gaskets and i can remember where this electrical connector goes. I thought it was to do with the injection pump or pmd but i can’t find where it needs to be. Besides filling oil and coolant, this is the last thing left of the...
