STILL THERE TO HELP ME WITH ANSWERS?
Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.

i apologize

I am here,

Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.

Just because the light was on a LONG TIME AGO does not mean there are not NEW codes that could be important to diagnosing the issue.

Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.

Without those codes there is still some stuff we can look at and go over that we see on these trucks with similar symptoms.

Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.

So does the engine START and IDLE fine? Just when you attempt to accelerate or rev the engine it rattles and knocks?

Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.

something is wrong with this chat on my side. Every time I reply it shows that the customer replied.

Let me know when your back please.

Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.

Anyways let me know.

IT STARTS FINE BUT IS ROUGH LIKE FOR 1 MIN, THEN IDLES FINE, BUT WHEN I ACCELERATE IT BEYOND 1800 RPM WITH GEAR IN PARKING, THEN ID VERY ROUGH AND RATTLES AND KNOCKS
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
MIGHT BE THE CAM POSITIONING SENSOR OR THE VIAS POWER VALVE ACTUATOR?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I REPLACED THE SPARK PLUGS AND CHECKED THE COILS, THERE ARE NO SIGNS OF BURN OR OBVIOUS DEFFECTS

GOT YOUR MAIL AND RESPONDED BACK, THANKS
Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.

I did get your original email, thanks.

Have yet to hear back again though on whether or not you got those codes or proceeded further with any recommendations.

You can reply here or email is fine, just remember to leave me a kind rating when you get a moment.
