What is DV? I kinda figured that it started harder because of the 256k miles and my brotheres having 120k, they should never take longer to start because of mileage? My a/c works but the ducting thing doesn't, like the switch the makes it go to floor or defrost or the upper ducts, it always stays on defrost vents, but I will check the vacuum thing. I heard something about the fuel return lines being crap after a couple years and replacing them with marine lines. I'll see what I can get fixed and get some pics on here. I am gonna try and hook up our trailor and go up horsepower hill and see how it does, I have never had a truck that I only had to push the gas an inch from idle to get it up that hill, my old ford I would have it floored and lose 10mph, Unloaded. This truck has some flaws but I am very happy I got a cummins and the manual.
I am also getting wonderful gas mileage, don't know what I am getting yet but I drove 60 miles without the gas gauge moving. But I would like to hear it a little better, it is soooo quiet right now, if I cut the muffler off and put a straight pipe in it's place, will it do anything to hurt/gain gas mileage, I don't want to do anything to this truck that will have a chance of losing gas mileage.
