Hello, my name is***** truck has a series of common problems that can cause this. If the engine has not been tuned up in some time then this can occur from worn out spark plugs or corrosion in the distributor cap. It can also be caused by a clogging fuel filter or a failing coolant temperature sensor. If the sensor is reading bad then it will cause some fuel mixture problems. Did you plan on fixing this yourself?
