Been while fellas, bringing Black Betty out of storage...

Post by jeep_boy02 » Tue Mar 09, 2021 10:40 am

So shes been sitting dormant for 1.5 yrs! I am going to do oil change, tire rotate/balance, and run seafoam through tank at a good ratio(more than 1 oz to a gallon). Anything else I should be sure to do? I am getting a P0457 and P0456, replaced the gas cap, purge valve, and solenoid. Cleared codes and the cap light never went away but the 0456 didnt come back and it felt as if it ran better afterwards, and I gained about 1 MPG. The 0457 CEL came back this morning though. Should I order up a charcoal canister?

Lots of maintenance to be done, gotta find a rambox to replace the bed with and build new bumpers and sliders.

Glad to see this place has grown and even though I'm in small town USA 4 yrs ago I was the only PW, now there are 7! And I seen 3 the first day back around town. We're spreading :cheers: :cheers:

Go Steelers! You'll like what I have planned for a decal renovation.

Hit one and a quarter leaving work Friday... another milestone. Still tracing down the P0456 and 0457 EVAP codes. Guessing it's going to be a hose somewhere as I put new cap, valve, solenoid, and PCV on.
