Yes I do like to do all my own service if I can. I have replaced the fuel filter and housing that has sensor built in. And I have tried to clear codes I was told a couple of diffent thing that I have tried both. I turned key on and off three times then I tried six times then I tried unhook the battery and touch leads together and hook back up. So far nothing is working

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you're seeing a message that says maintenance required - see dealer it is because you've passed the emissions maintenance interval. At 67,500 mile intervals you will see this message alerting you that the CCV filter needs to be replaced and the EGR cooler cleaned.

I hope that helps! My goal is your satisfaction today. If you feel I've been professional and helpful, your 5-star rating at this time is most appreciated. However, if you still need my help you can reply back here and I'll respond as soon as possible! Thank you!

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.
