Thanks. Can you tell me if the check engine light is coming on.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No check engine light on and I've driven it approximately 25 miles
Expert:  BOBBYSS replied 1 year ago.
Thank you. The most common cause of this engine running this way is the fuel injection unit. This has the infamous spider injection unit in the intake manifold that is known to clog and have numerous issues. In some cases a pressurized fuel injection cleaning will help. I have also has worn timing chains and bad I take manifold gaskets cause this. Did you plan on fixing this yourself?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes I planned on it I replaced intake manifold gaskets about six years ago but that doesn't mean they couldn't be bad again I'm agreeing with you on the injectors issue I have 267,000 on the truck and I've never touched the fuel train except for pump and filter
Expert:  BOBBYSS replied 1 year ago.
I would suspect the fuel injection unit over everything else. Can you tell me if your scan tool reads live engine data while the engine is running?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
