before the board was upgraded to this fancy-shmancy
board. I had asked a question about getting smoke when flipping on the Jake brake or givener pedal while the jake was on and getting a puff of white smoke. I had many wonderful replies from the greats, I believe Luke even responded, recommended running the rack if I remember correctly.
I drove over the same mountain so I have a chance to share an update. It didn't smoke this time.
here is the difference:
- warmer outside, 70's and misty, around 30 last time
- At some point I remember to get additive when I filledup. I had been out for a little while on my old f250, I run alittle tran fluid mixed in and it keeps it running smoother and smoking less. so i bought some lucas because thats what they had and put it in(no trannyfluid because of the dye). I probably still need to run the rack and I am not making any suggestions or rebuttals.
I'm just sharing what I did and the response i had by doing what i would have done anyway. YMMV (we need a smilycon for this)
I learned where the valves are and may run the rack in the fall when I can set aside time and partly because I want
gotta love the bus
