Yikes!!! I would say that there's about a 95% chance that engine has been under water (salt water).

Where abouts in the trunk is it...... I haven't noticed that before. If it is for trailer wiring any voltmeter or test light should help you figure out what pin does what.

You might want to check the bolts that hold the compressor on too..... I would even if the noise is gone, you don't want to loose one of them (not easy to find another).

If you didn't say you had already done the front main seal I would bet on that since it will sling any oil that leaks there on the compressor. Sure it isn't still leaking there?

cwdtmmrs,

Are you sure that you aren't just experiencing "gear rollover" when it's being lugged? Most Diesel pickups with a manual trans will do this when lugged at lower speeds.

Another thought I have is a weak battery. When the engine is hot the compression is higher/the engine is harder to turn over fast enough. If the other stuff doesn't fix the problem check the battery.
