Customer Question
I have a 99...

I have a 99 chevy 2500 p/u with a 6.5 diesel, the service engine soon light keeps coming on. I've replaced the vacuum pump,boost pressure sensor and waste gate solenoid. the service engine light keeps coming back on. scanner codes p0230, p0238 and p236 have come up. blows black smoke when pulling the slightest incline. what else can be the problem

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have the trouble code? Do you have a code reader or scan tool?

No took it to a shop that did.

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll pass this info along to the Chevy Mechanic so that he can get you a quick fix. Are you fixing your 2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

My mechanic has replaced parts from above.

Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!

I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please
understand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problem
with the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computer
data/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; we
just diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the
vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. Note there may be an issue where the complexity of the issue will require a Premium Service. This service will be an addition to the normal question cost. Usually it does not come down to this but keep in mind!! I am also going to direct you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please be
patient and permit me to do what I do best.
I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in
return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there
is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I
can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you
through it.
Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail.

i do need a vin # of the vehicle to assist!!

thanks
