WTF did his air filter look like with a turbo chewed up like that? Maybe alky injection at the inlet but it looks too nasty for that.2005 LLY 256k miles.
Customer called, said a shop quoted him $3500 to change his high pressure pump.
We said well if it is that we charge $1800, but we will NOT change the part unless we diagnose it.
Within 30 mins I find low rail pressure, about 9000psi out of 24000.
Another 15 mins and I have a confirmed failure of the pressure relief valve. It's relieving too early causing rail psi drop.
Install new valve. All fixed.
Now I'm just changing the regulator cause it had a slight surge at idle.
Pump is good. 24k psi all day long.
Hell be outta here for less than $1200.
I did find a wasted turbo so maybe that at a later date.
Yea no, it just suds up... 3-4 flushes with 2610 and waters running clear.I used the same stuff from fleet guard. Seemed to work pretty well. Some of the old boys swear by cascade liquid detergent but I didn’t have any on hand
