Just you, or is your wife there, as well?

It's just me for right now, my wife is getting some things sorted out at home medical wise. But she'll be back out on the road with me in no time! When I said "we" in my last post, I meant me and the tow truck driver.

I was wondering how the company would do the hotel if it were two of you?

Hmm that's a good question, I'd assume it'd be about the same way. I actually got to pick the hotel I wanted to stay at, just had to be close by. They had me go to the hotel and get the price after taxes, phone number and fax number and asked to try to keep it under $100.

Got back to my truck this morning to check it into the shop, the fault code was still active, turned the truck on for a few minutes and turned it off, now the code is gone. shocked.png

Still going to see what the shops says since the engine went into shutdown mode yesterday.

Is it a Freightliner? They have a big problem with the exhaust temperature sensors it thinks the exhaust is extremely hot so it shuts the engine down with no warning. Once it sits for awhile its fine again, still something you want to get fixed so it doesnt shut off unexpectedly.

Hopefully, they can diagnose it quickly through the ECM, and have on your way.
