Another vp44 bites the dust

Should be posted on 2nd gen....

Now I'm at 147k on the truck. My 19 year old daughter was driving it. Left her on the side of the road, and my wife's Ford exp!other towed it home. She has not been using fuel additives of any type. Bought BlueChip standard 15x vp-44 this time and the airdog FP-100. Started it up today after two months of not running. Sounds great ready to roll. I will be driving it now. will use two stroke oil @ 1:128. New ATS transmission too. Stock transmission didn't last under my daughter's heavy foot and power braking. Kids these days.

She will drive the Toyota corolla.

Had the lift pump ever been changed? Fuel pressure gauge?

Yes. Fuel gauge at the first VP replacement. 3 lift pumps total.

Added the low pressure annunciator light this time.
