Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Does the cold air switch over to cool outside air blowing in or does it switch over to hot air like the heater has been switched on?

Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.

Sorry Pete responded to your question above through a link in the email but don't think you got it because I haven't heard back and given your quick initial response thought I try again. In answer to question "Does the cold air switch over to cool outside air blowing in or does it switch over to hot air like the heater has been switched on?" The cold air switches over like outside air blowing in not like heated air from heater. Also don't know if you got this answer either but you asked if the air venting was on inside circulation or outside it is on inside circulation. Hope this helps and sorry for delay in answering not sure what happen to my other response.

Have you had the fault codes checked at all to see what codes are set with this issue here using a fully compatible scan tool that can plug in and communicate with all computers?

Just want to say your help was appreciated though pretty inconsequential and of little use. I have taken the car in to our mechanic to be fixed and will no longer need your services. Thanks have good week.

O.k.,unfortunately I was not able to leave an answer to your question here as I was trying to get enough info to help with answering before I posted the answer.If there is anything else I can help with on this here let me know.

Thanks Pete

Unfortunately your last request of me was to get a scan reading and the only way to do that was to take it to the dealer and pay $85.00. You see unless the check engine light is on, which mine is/was not, Auto Zone, Discount and other parts dealers in our town won't do a reading for you. So if I am going to pay someone $85 to do a reading then as I said I took it to my mechanic and he is fixing it at a cost of $190.00.

O.k.,if there is anything else we can help with in the future let us know.

Thanks Pete

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
