I have not checked those items. The truck was running fine and just stopped. Once I replaced the items I mentioned i got the truck running but is still starting hard. It kindof sounds like it's timing or a couple of sparkplug wires are crossed. I checked the wiring and it is correct.
it has approximately 230K miles of the truck
The reason for running a compression test is to confirm whether not you have at least 170 PSI. If the timing belt jumps time it will cause it to run difficult and almost seem like the plug wires are crossed. If the belt jumps time the compression will drop. Did you check for any malfunction codes that may be set in the computer?
No i do not have a scanner that will connect to this year of truck. Sounds like i need to take it to the shop and have them check the codes, compression, and possibly replace the timing belt.
ok, give me a few minutes
It shows code 14
I'll get back with you once I completed this.
I followed your instructions, after the first time i disconnected the negative side of the battery for 5 minutes and then reconnected it, i turn the switch on the the check engine light flashed continuously, i started the truck and let it run for a few minutes, once it comes off of idle a little it started running rough, i then disconnected the negative side of the battery for 5 minutes and check for codes. The check engine light is still blinking continuously.
ok, I will let it run rough for for a couple of minutes, turn it off and do it again right?
I let it run rough for a few minutes, turned it off and did it again. During both times the check engine light blinked continuously. I noticed the O/D off light was blinkly faintly.
ok, the light continues to flash
could it be the fuel filter or fuel pump
