It started out running really hard and exhaust was really loud and all of a sudden it died and didn't want to stay running and that was before changing the mass air flow sensor

It has a new battery and alternator demand I habe tracked the fuel system and everything it still won't do anything
Toyota Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 7 months ago

can you check if the battery holding the 12 volts when turn the ignition switch to start and you measuring with a voltmeter ,is holding 12 or dropping to 10 and below

check the cables from battery to fuse box to starter

do we have 12 volts at starter one big red cable from battery and at teh small wire at solenoid

is the panel inside the truck lighting up at all ?

If you do not mind me asking ,are you looking at fixing this yourself or looking to know the most possible cause of this issue and taking it to repair shop for the work ?

Do you have any prior experience in electrical troubleshooting and testing with a test light for power & ground ?

Do have a power probe for testing ?

Please let me know

Thank You
