Ok,This is where I would start with this. First, make sure the truck is not overfilled with oil. Check and make sure the air filter box lid is on as it should be and tight. If you have a leak from them checking the air filter it will cause this.Next, inspect the spark plug wires and make sure they are all tight on the distributor cap. If one got bumped off, then it would cause this as well.Please take a look at this and let me know.Thanks
