I got poor Yuma out of bed this morning to take a walk at 6:30 because I wanted to be ready at sunrise to take the White Lion over to get four new tires on the rear so it would be safe to travel.
Soon as I got back to the WL, I tried starting it and the darn thing would not start. It would turn over, but not start. I was so happy the evening before when it would start so quickly with the two new starting batteries. One step forward and one step back is the way I’m feeling right now.
I tried starting it about every half hour or hour till around noon and then I gave up. I tried jumping it with the Jeep even and it turned over more quickly, but refused to start!
I sure can’t boondock if I can’t trust it to start. With desperation, I texted Sam at CAT and told him it would not start. He wrote back and said he would talk to a tech and get back to me.
When he wrote back this is what he said:
“I spoke with the tech that got your coach running. He said the injection actuation pressure valve could be bad again due to how dirty the oil was.“
I had just had Midway Diesel replace the oil pump and I thought they had replaced the oil. Sounds like they put the old oil back into the coach. I wish the tech had told me the oil was filthy. So, now we are back at square one. It won’t start!
Here’s where we stand now. I texted Sam and asked that he schedule a tech to drive over and replace the oil and filter, replace the valve if that is the reason it won’t start and also bring an engine coolant sensor for the code 61. Sam texted back and said he would make that happen.
I feel good that something logical is happening, but aggravated at the same time. Enough said about that. Now I wait for him to let me know when it will happen.
This evening, I decided one more night of KFC and call it quits with the chicken. It is good though. I even bought Yuma two chicken tenders so he wouldn’t eat so much of mine. Not sure it worked out that way.
It’s already 8:30 and I am exhausted. We’re going to hit the sack. Thanks for stopping by.
