You don't smell that stuff, it'* icky. And the only way to get it off is with a belt sander.

I hop in the car to leave. Starts...stumbles...dies. Odd, kick the key again, same thing. Hopped out and did this.

Notice the relay with a pin sticking out. Bent the pin on the fuel pump speed relay. Bypassing the resistor that commonly goes bad. Diagnosed and fixed by the third start attempt. :Thumbs

It'* bend that and drive or pull the bumper cover and washer bottle to get to the resistor. The replacements go on teh firewall behind the motor. Since I don't have one and can't get one easily.. Bent pin puts the fuel pump at a full 12 volts. Which is exactly what all the hotwire kits do, except they add larger gauge wire as well. I'll tune for it and call it a day. Probably cut the pin off the relay.

Enjoyed a 25 minute drive home with no vibrations or wobbles, man does it feel good to get things fixed.

Does feel good Tommy. A bit odd sitting so low after driving the truck almost a year now.

Probably feels odd floating effortlessly to highway speeds as well! I remember the feeling when I was driving my truck while the SSEi was getting the audio done.
