Ive been working on my wife’s 1990,305,2500, pickup.we had it in the shop and they couldn’t figure it out(it was costing to much money & time,so they wanted me to take it home and see if we could fix it)
It is stalling after warming up! All together many parts have been put in with NO results. Diagnostics were ran but on that year you don’t get much and in this case we got nothing! After sitting for 2 weeks because of a family emergency we went back to work on it,but, it wouldn’t start,put the battery charger on it. Tried to start, nothing,tried to jump start with battery charger,nothing. Trying to figure out about this crank shaft senor, I read this answer about the 1991. So I don’t know what to do next?

Hi, I still need this question answered. Ive been working on this 1990, 305, 2500 2wd pickup truck for sometime. It was first taken into the shop but they couldn’t figure it out, said it was costing me to much money so take it home and try some things. Looked up the problem on utube got several different answers, so we stared out with the low cost items.. Fuel filer,ECM,CTS,cap and rotor,TPS,FPR,EGR,MAP,TBI,ICM,cleaned TBI, checked for leaks, and by the way the PROBLEM is the truck would stall after driving then stopping at a light or putting it in reverse,but it would start right back up again. No cooling off was needed. along the way of all this figuring out we lost the transmission so it was rebuilt.. Vin # is1GCFC24H7LE175379, no codes stored might have been when we took it to the shop,but I don’t think there was.
