Apparently my truck decided that a top speed of 40 to 45 m.p.h., on the Interstate , was fast enough. My boss and I have a different idea and think 45 might be too slow.

It turns out the VPOD/Numatic Control Valve and something called the CPT was bad.

Hey Dave,

The subject of post leads me to believe that you are in Omaha when you were seemingly required to be in Oklahoma. Then, in your post, you mention something about speed limits, followed by a post about a problem with the VPOD/Numatic Control Valve and something called the CPT.

I know I have a literacy problem, so I don't normally understand what I read until I've read it a few times. This is one of those instances where I'm completely lost.

Could you clarify the issue, please?

I think that his boss was thinking he should have been in Oklahoma, but since he had mechanical issues, his truck would only do 40 to 45 mph, so he was only as far as Omaha?

Boss sent me back to a Freightliner in Omaha, to get my truck fixed. I basically lost half a day. I was past Percival, Iowa and couldn't turn around until Exit 1, on I-29, in Iowa. I was going 45 all the way back.

I was driving on L St., in Omaha, trying to make it to Freightliner, going 10 m.p.h. at times, driving up the hills.

Well, it works now, Thank God.
