Thanks guys,
It still isn't fixed, the tech was on the phone with GM tech and now they want to change the 4 injectors in the one circuit, I told them to change the 2 on the right bank because it was already tore apart, they also found a compromised wire in the circuit, so hopefully it will be done by the end of the day. Oh and GM says keep the new FICM in because the old one is probably shot due to the load in the injector circuit. Right now, I believe that they are all guessing, they don't seem to teach much troubleshooting to the techs nowadays, if it doesn't show up on the computer screen, just throw parts at it.
Frank

Frank, sorry to hear the problems your having, I always said that most dealers use the shotgun approach, throw everything new at the system they are trying to fix and something will happen, rather then diagnose then put what it really needs, I have seen so many new techs that could not figure out on their own.

ok guys,
Ended up changing 2 injectors on the right bank, found one of the injector firing coils had rotated in the holder, opening up the circuit. The truck ran and codes cleared as they should, Yeah. Then the bad news, injector hung open on the left bank, so not heading to Florida tomorrow, and $$$$ keep adding up.

thanks bap,
Buying a new one just isn't going to happen. I told the DW last night that we weren't supposed to leave this morning for some reason, and looking at the wind and rain, it is probably for the best. If we get the truck today before dark, we will be fine, I will just have to drive tonight, which I don't usually do.
I'm sorry to here about the kids, that is a terrible way to have to live.
Frank

thanks guardrail53, bap, that's the way I look at it, the weather yesterday morning was not the nicest and the wind would have blown us all over the road, not to mention the horrible fuel mileage. Well here is the latest and hopefully last update, changed the bad injector, then got a call, truck won't pull itself, no fuel pressure. I told the service writer to throw the switch under the dash to turn on the lift pump that I added. Low and behold, everything was ok. $3900 later and all is well, The only thig I am upset with was the $1225 FICM that they thought was bad but wasn't, the rest of the bill, I have no problem with.
Anyways, left Smyrna at 4pm, got into our site in Florida this afternoon at 1:30. Stopped at a Walmart last night at 11:30 of course there was the sign NO overnight RV parking, but I stayed anyways, I was too tired to go on. 700 miles and truck seemed to be running like it should. It is good to be at our winter home, and seeing some of our friends that are already here.
I guess the old saying all's well that ends well applies here.
Thank you to everyone that sent their kind response's to our problems. This is one of the many things that makes this site so GREAT.
Frank
