Default 94 K2500 6.5 Turbo diesel

Hey guys I found a truck w/in 30 miles of me that is a diesel.Has a few things that need fixed and I'm kind of worried about how the guy who owns it installed the PMD himself he also installed a new block heater. What are some common problems or things to look for on the PMD problems? He says it has a u-joint going out on the drive shaft but that isn't to hard to replace I don't think. Well here it is. I offered him $2,000 as is.

Any input would be appreciated.

pmd problems usually start out as a "fishbite" where it seems like its misfiring. sometimes they will just stall. then you can start them right up again. some have also reported that the truck will accerlate at full throttle. sometimes they just stop working. thats the syptoms i have heard of. for 2k it sounds like a nice deal as long there isnt a ton of problems.

He installed the PMD on the firewall so I was told in an e-mail from him.

The best place for the PMD to be installed is out of the engine bay. Perferably right behind the front bumper....

Its all about general maintenance. Move the pmd like woody said. It will be the cheapest diesel you will ever own parts wise vs other diesels out there. Not to bad looking, u joints arent that bad.
