I got Ayumi to squeak by her safety and emissions tests! I now need to do her front brakes, but still that's a load off my shoulders. And I knew I'd have to do it eventually

So you know how Etrian Odyssey V came out in Japan in August of last year? And there hasn't been any word of a Western release since? And I've been super-anxious about whether it'd get localized at all since I freakin' love EO?

It's happening. Oh Boy!

Deep Strange Journey is also coming to the US in early 2018! Praise feathers!

though I'm probably the only one here who'd care because I really like first-person dungeon crawlers

Finally tore into the GMC today and made an interesting discovery. The inside of the engine is coked up pretty good from extended idle time, which is to be expected of a former state truck, and from a badly leaking EGR gasket.

EGR,  Exhaust Gas Recirculation, is an emissions system that feeds exhaust gas back into the engine under certain load conditions to reduce combustion temperatures. This in turn reduces Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx). In this engine, there's a gasket that keeps a standpipe for exhaust gas from leaking into the intake side of the engine. This gasket was completely burnt through and the engine was basically constantly feeding on its own exhaust. Fortunately I was already going to replace this gasket because I found a warning to replace it if you split the intake to access the injection pump, like I did.

Wiping a fair bit of gunk out of the intake, plus the new injection timing stepper motor that I ordered, and the fresh gasket has made a very noticeable change in performance. The engine idles with a lighter note, as if it is happy. Throttle response has also improved, as overall power. All and in all, I just saved myself from having to put $1,600 into this engine, instead spending only about $250.

The Check Engine light is now also out. The same codes that used to set immediately are now pending codes, somewhat concerning that they are still sorta there, but despite running all over town with a mix of aggressive and gentle driving, they haven't become hard faults. I know the boost sensor wasn't working correctly, reading 22 psi at idle, and a code appeared in the computer just before I reset the computer for the crankshaft position sensor. Crankshaft sensors are not known for being particularly reliable components in those days and I may just throw a new one in just to see what happens.

I was very nervous and worried prior to starting the truck up. This is the first major issue I've had in a while that I've actually taken time to diagnose on my own and called the part based on electrical testing. I was scared it wouldn't fix it so you can imagine how relieved I was when the check engine light stayed out despite running the truck hard.

I plan to take this truck down to college tomorrow to see how well she copes.
