17. And so it continues... Jan 21, 2019, 07:44 Burrito of Peace
 
So today's list of things to do on the truck:

1. Pull out the garage laptop, plug in the OBD2 connector, and check to see if there are any codes. The CEL is not illuminated on the dash but it never hurts to see what the PCM is reporting while driving.
2. Replace the fuel filter.
3. Buy some CRC Mass Air Flow Sensor Cleaner and clean the shit out of the MAF.
4. Buy some throttle body cleaner and clean the throttle body.

I'll report back, if anyone is interested.

So the problem I am experiencing is this:

Truck accelerates fine from a dead start, problems doesn't occur until she's rolling. If I have my foot in the gas about mid-way, acceleration seems to lag, catch itself and accelerate properly, and then lags again. Under WOT, she doesn't do this. Were it a slipping trans, I would expect it to do it more under WOT because of the greater load.

I've swapped in a new air filter, just swapped the plugs, and I am going to replace the fuel filter tomorrow.

As an aside, do we have an mechanics here that I could ask a couple of questions to? Just looking for some general pointers for a problem I'm having with my 2011 F-150 5.0.

Sweeeeeet.

Also agree with bringing back "Ripley's Believe it or Not!" Hell, you could even get Don Wildman to host it. He does a pretty good job on "Mystery at the Museum".

Texas, as usual, can't seem to make up its goddamned mind about whether it wants to be winter or spring. Two days ago? 72 degrees. Right now? 33 degrees. This wild swinging back and forth is producing some stunning headaches.

Also, it is causing complete havoc with my winter vegetables.

Is there a particular make/model/brand you prefer. this one made me squeee a tiny bit...

That's the exact model I have at work and it works really well for desktop use.

I can get to the BIOS, I think that might show the voltages of the various rails. Are you able to test the PS with the tester without plugging into the motherboard?

Correct, jd. With a PSU tester, there is no need to have it even in the system, let alone connected to anything.

One of the things that I always recommend people have on hand is a power supply tester. They're relatively inexpensive and save a lot of time on swapping PSUs back and forth.

Don't listen to the haters, MS. Just keep doing what you're doing.

Because that will lead to more development in to things like Vulkan and Proton which just keep making Linux better.

In as much as I would very much like to see AMD succeed on the GPU front, let me know when they have a solution that will defeat my aging 970 in the $250 range that also doesn't emit enough heat to warm a 5000 sqft. home in the Arctic.

The ratio of fake news stories from the NYT, WaPo, and CNN is about 1000-1 over fake news from Russia...;) Nothing like "looking for fake news in all the wrong places"...;)

Let's assume that's true (it isn't), the shit that comes out of Trumpster Fire's mouth is more fake news than all alleged "fake news" in the history of American journalism.

And yet some of Wall Street expects Intel to buy AMD this year.

Not going to happen. Intel has already fought a long and very expensive anti-trust suit (even for them, it was expensive) and they are in no rush to do so again. It doesn't matter that Intel produces CISC procs and AMD produces RISC procs. What matters is that, if Intel were to buy AMD, there would be zero competition for procs for the average consumer. ARM isn't anywhere close to being capable or ready to be a desktop proc so there's no justification for citing them as possible competition.

Even if the US were to turn a blind eye to such an acquisition, the EU would hammer Intel's ass in to dust with their anti-trust proceedings and the EU isn't nearly as bought and paid for like the corprocratic US.

I work one 18 hour day, go to sleep, and wake up to find Blue wielding the * REMOVED * hammer like a meth fueled Thor. Something I have rarely seen in the 15 years I have been commenting.

What the actual fuck is wrong with some of you people?!
