does it have spark at the spark plugs when cranking it over ?
any idea what the fuel pressure is key ON engine OFF ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It fires and has spark it has over 55 psi pressure of gas
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It will start up and run but Idols rough and if you step on the gas it will choke it out and it smells of rich
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.
key ON engine OFF the fuel pressure is 55 - 62 and will hold withing spec for a few seconds ?
if you remove the O2 sensors in FRONT of the cat converter and run the truck will it stop doing this ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.
no to which ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It holds pressure when the key is off but it will not run right even if you unplug 02 sensors
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.
ok can you take a fuel sample in a glass container and let the sample sit is there any separation ?
gas will float on water
if the fuel is good and smells good can you perform a compression test on all 8 cylinders ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The tank was empty and I filled it all the way up to a full tank so there is new gas in there and I have compression all the cylinders

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It doesn't throw a code
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.
does it run bad like this when hot and cold?
you do smell raw fuel?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's new gas and both hot and cold
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.
how many miles is on it?
did you replace the plugs and wires?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
139000 and yes just two weeks ago
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.
ok
sense there are no trouble codes,and,from the way you explain,,this could be a couple of things..
1-perhaps the new crank sensor is bad
2-it is possible that the maf sensor is bad
3-i have seen a bad ect[engine coolant temperature] sensor do this and not give a code.and this will flood the engine.
it is strange that it is running the badly and not giving a code.
i would think that a cam sensor would give a 341-343 code.
