Got a few questions:
Have you checked the tranny fluid? and has the tranny fluid and filter ever been changed?
How old is the heavy duty battery? Has it been tested or load tested?
Has the charging system been checked?
Oils pressure-- I would install a mechanical gauge to verify what the oil pressure really is.
