Well guys I have an update on my truck. After sitting at the International dealer for 4months and them not doing a damn thing basically. I just sold my truck as is on Craigslist. I still owed 9300$. Sold i5 for 12500$. Bank value after all the stuff I've done to it was about 26000$. Anyway. Day I signed the papers I asked the guy if he figured out my problem. He said he did. But I wouldn't like it. After asking 3times. He finally told me. He said he took it to his mechanic and after 10mins of driving it with computer on it he said they figured it out. I'm like in disbelief because th3 truck has been sitting at carco international in ft.smith and they haven't figured anything out. He tells me it was the wastegate on the new turbo I had put on it at the dealer about 8 months ago. He said when it took off the wastegate would open and not allow pressure to build up. He said it should have been building 20 psi and it would only build 3psi. So he said he clamped some vice grips on it to make it stay shut and he said it ran better than his 2014 model! I was really pretty angry. Because the turbo had another 2yrs of warranty left. So it wouldn't have cost me a thing! Yet for whatever reason the dealer couldn't figure it out??? I basically had to sell my truck for a huge loss. And lost my livelihood because of it. All because of this faulty wastegate that the dealer wouldn't or couldn't figure out. I am truly in utter disbelief at what happened. But aanyways.regarless of how much I lost I'm glad I never have to deal with one of these piece of crap trucks ever again!. Good luck to all you guys that have them. I would advise any of you to never ever take your truck to the dealer in Fort smith! Good luck guys. You'll need it on these dang trucks.

That can be a couple of things. your heater core could be blocked. you may have to either change it out. Or you can unplug the hoses and get a high pressure hose and back flush it until the gunk coming out of it is clear. Or it can be one of the vents not closing and its allowing cold air to enter from outside. its the blend door. those little motors go out all the time. there are like 3 of them. that can make it seem cold.

id check the blend door first. then check the little motor that closes the door. I think its like 34$ if that isn't the prob then id try backflushing the heater core.

I drive a 2006 International 4300 ST 466 for my company hauling mail. This truck has 2 things that happen that the mechanic is having a hard time figuring out. 1. Every so often the yellow engine light flashes on while driving. And 2. Every so often it starts beeping around 8-10 times with no warning lights coming on or a message below the mileage. I always do a pre & post trip inspection of all fluids (no brake fluid due to air brakes). They are always fine when both issues happen. Can anyone help us out?

Hey I need some help

Check the interconnect cables above your batteries. They probably need to be replaced. They get fried out and start the melt harness. Happen to mine. You will get engine light on from it. International updated the new part. More bs from international. usually problem where 4he 40 amp fuse goes

Be shure to replace the rubber grommets on your fuel lines off the filter. They get old and hard and will leak

I just picked up an Fcar HD scanner F502 to read data on my 05' International 4300 DT466. I have been having trouble with cold starts and low power. Wanted to check high pressure oil pressure and fuel pressure. The information I got is confusing and I don't know which pressure I need.
Here is what came up;
Injector metering rail #2 pressure 3.09psi
Extended Range Fuel Delivery Pressure (absolute) 6546.07psi
Auxiliary Gage Pressure Reading #1 457.66psi
Auxiliary Vacuum Pressure Reading 1471.50psi
this was all taken at idle, if anything looks familiar please reply.
Thanks John
