|TK2 did his job and looked ran the pickup through their OBD diagnostics. They found nothing that directly points to TK. Just an error code for "Random Misfirings". They're blaming the age of truck.|
I'd maybe buy that, if the "CHECK ENGINE" light was on before TK worked on it. It wasn't. I think something is screwed up and they're trying to sweep it under the rug by telling me to "fugedaboutit".
I might as well pick up the truck from TK2.
But, what's the next step?
Yesterday, I managed to pick the brain of a mechanic from the local Ford/Isuzu dealer. It could be a head (costly), or a valve adjustment. Especially, considering the age. Or, it could be something wrong with the distributor, cap, rotor, wire and sparkplugs installed by TK.
I'm not trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. I understand the truck is old. I just think that the story they're telling is is bogus. I don't think it's normal to drive around with a "CHECK ENGINE" light on, and I think SOMETHING TK did wasn't quite right.
