bugga. CEL came on again tonight, maybe it knew I was driving back to work or something.... but it came on only a mile from home.

In addition to the 401 the scan tool says "EGR Flow Insufficient." Is that meaningful to anyone?

It means the flow on your EGR is insufficient

I had the same on mine. It's a very intermittent code it seems. It was VSV for EGR on mine, kind of a bugger to get at. Mine would only come on going down I-25 after about an hour. Driving around town it never came on. I guess they go bad when they get hot on these older trucks. I pulled my upper intake to get at mine, but there are ways more competent mechanics than I can do without taking the intake off.

Yeah I may wind up just having a competent mechanic come over, would probably save me money. Last time I went through the diagnostics in the FSM my head was spinning about 4 steps in...

You jinxed me Nakster! Didn't pop a 401 but I popped a 171 tonight about 20 miles prior to losing the speedo. Most likely the speed sensor as it bounces randomly all over the gauge when it wakes up briefly. (for upper management that would be Bank 1 too lean)

Batteries! Seriously, you want to invest in the best scanner you can afford. You can at least get buy with the el cheapos as they will tell you the code and reset it for you but to go real time or data log you need to blow some cash. Of course you have already invested in a FSM and ESM just because your a smart guy and thats what smart guys buy right after they get the title.

I have the autoxray4000 that reads codes and allows you to monitor as you drive. I am pretty happy with it

You should also get a factory service manual (FSM) and wiring diagram for your truck. That well help quite a bit. I am not talking the Haynes or Chilton books
