  1. If I start the truck (Cold or warm) the heat will not work, sometimes the temp gauge goes up enough to kick the fan on although the air is cold blowing thru. Odd thing is , once you go a few hundred yards all is good. Is the thermostat sticking? Why would it suddenly open from moving a short distance? 1999 CH613
  2. Loves Aeolus tires are a great value as well, I bought them before and will be buying a couple steers in the afternoon!
  3. Being new to a Mack , one of the things that no matter the horsepower is the fact the Mack power curve is very flat and will never "feel" like you are accelerating. One of the first issues when new to the brand for many!
  4. Does anyone have a copy of the fuse panel identifying each fuse? My reverse light isn't working because there is no power to the sensor.
  5. Might make sense ! This truck was parked for a year or so , might just be stuck! Thanks !!!
  6. Reverse light and low air alarm are not operable on a truck I just bought , any suggestions , before I overlook the obvious ? Also is there anything special to wire for the trailer ABS light to work properly? Thanks in advance !
  7. Any good places to look for a handheld scanner where I can check codes and change settings
  8. Looking for grey CH door cards .
  9. Maybe rebuild to the E-7 marine spec engines, although is seem's very difficult to find info on them thesedays.
  10. Chicago , Joliet , Indiana Mack and the small satellite shops were great when owned by Shelby , bit no longer. While I don't get thru Tulsa much ,I always appreciated Tulsa Mack! If I had the cash to buy the 2000 Vision there right now I would !
  11. Whats it weigh with no trailer and a half tanks of fuel?
  12. Throttle ! I 25 year rule gets vehicles past EPA issues and I don't think those would apply to heavy trucks anyway.
  13. I've always wanted to have one with lit up eyes , THEN have a spring loaded right leg that will lift when I hit a button to make it lift it's leg and piss on Peterbilts when hooked to a windshield washer pump!!
  14. Also has one other intermittent issue in reverse , sometimes while backing it will suddenly "jump" like theres a rock between the gears or something . 1st time having a Mack without a real Mack gearbox , sure does not seem as smooth or quiet as I've been used to. I suppose I should be planning on a rebuild of it . 2001 Vision with a 460, motor is fine just this gearbox had me on edge , not so wild on 3.70 rear gears , who spec's that in the last 2 decades for a road truck?????
