Hey Guys, new here. While driving my 01 4.7l V8 Dakota it died on me and wouldn't start back up. Odometer reads "no bus" Took it in to dealer to get a diagnostic check, and they say bad pcm. Evidently oil got into the pcm and caused problem. They want $1060 to fix problem. I'm looking at
Hi. New to the forum. I have a 2001 with 218k. I am also having problems with oil in the PCM connector. If I clean out the oil in the connector, truck runs like a champ for a while until there is oil in it again. Where is the oil coming from?
i don't believe how that can even happen. its plugged in. even if you poured oil yourself over the connectors while its plugged in i would have a hard time believing it would get int here. so if you have an oil leak lets say, the chances that the oil flys around the engine bay and magically finds its way to the pcm, then INTO the the connectors it cant happen.
you would have to notice oil on the outside on the connectors for this to have any chance of happening.....do you?
i hope i dont come off as a dick, but i just cant wrap my brain our this.
