That is good. Yes I am here.. Did it run ruff before all the work you did to the truck?

Yes it did

Well 1 thing I can tell you is that K&N air filters don't work in these vehicles. So I would get the correct type of air filter and start there. The reason it doesn't is cause it causes a air vortex which makes it hard for the MAF sensor to meter the air and fuel trim. So it will run lean. I would also re-check your spark plug wires. Make sure you have them in the right order. Is this a after market distributor cap?

I will have to check on dist cap I just change the air filter out and remove kn . Will drive it up town see how it does

Did better with the kn filter out. Still has some cutting back with ac on. You think I should change out throttle control sensor
Expert:  Jay replied 2 years ago.
The K&N Air filters don't work on these trucks. So I am glad that part worked out. Everyone things if the truck runs bad that the throttle sensor should be changed. I don't know why people think that. It never goes bad on these trucks. Can you recheck to see if you have the wire on good for cylinder number 6? That is that one tough one on the drivers side. Let me know..
