    Default used pmd madness

    So last night I go buy a starter, stepper motor and pmd from someone. I get home put the starter in, it works fine. I bought a pmd because mine is starting to go out, stalling when today at lunch i go and put that 'new' pmd in my truck...starts up and runs good, i drive it around the block and I could tell a bigg power gain and it was much more i come back around the block and go to get onto a main road and i step on it and get her to 55 and and when i let off it kept goin...faster and faster. so i turn it off wait a sec and fire it back line...Wasn't exactly what I was but oh well...just though i'd share my adventure today! PMD Test - Failed!

    That would be a shocker. I had my PMD go out on my way to an emergency call while on the interstate doing 100mph. That was fun! lol

    sound like a bad injection pump symptom when the armature shaft starts to stick it will do that as well

    theres no problem at all when i plug in my other pmd...i went down an old road and plug that pmd in again and made a 1/2 mile pass, did a u turn and it stuck wide open again. switch pmd's back and it drives fine...but i thought I got a deal bought an IP with pmd and stepper motor, i only needed the pmd and stepper motor for 100$ and they both were bad. lol oh well it was worth the try

    Default Still the question

    Can a bad PMD cause his problem?? Normally they go slowwwer not faster when they go bad. Sounds like he narrowed it down by switching back and forth.

    When I first bought the truck, It cut off on me several times on Interstate 81hauling a trailer. Twice it cut off on the steep hill where they were doing
    interstate road work and had traffic down to a single lane. Local dealership replaced the injection pump for a king's ransome - did not help at all. Nothing worked until I put the FSD Heatsync from Walt on the truck.
