Didn't think to check belt. Especially since I hadn't had an issue before and I didn't mess with the belt.Wanna make sure I follow ya
The belt to the A/C looks in good condition? Inspect engine off, and watch tracking when idling with A/C off.
With A/C turned off it starts and runs ok.
Turn on A/C and engine dies?
That's reassuring, i suppose.On my 2000 any time I had the battery disconnected it would run really rough and not idle for a bit. It would go away after a few minutes of running it but you had to keep your foot on the throttle. Buddy of mine who has his own shop said that it was pretty normal.
I believe this is the grease. I've been using it for years - cap broke off so I keep it and a toothbrush in a surgical glove to try to prevent spread, haha.Yes relearn is needed on many modern rigs. Hopefully that is all you are experiencing.
Please post pic of grease container you used, or type the EXACT name.
If it is the proper one used, you cant really have too much, it just squishes out and you can wipe off excess.
If the wrong one is used, yes it can create an issue.
Forgot that the PO said he did plugs and wires; however, he also said he changed the battery this year or the last and it was dead, so who knows..I think it's a combination of wide, unevenly worn tires, and probably needs a tune up of plugs and wires... But could be the 250k miles also...
