I recently purchased this truck and when I did it was running perfectly. The next day it began giving me issues with a few second delay in time from when the gas pedal is depressed until the time when it actually throatled forward. Anywhere from half second to 3 second delay time there.
I changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor, spark plug wires, then timed it; ( it was about 10deg off) fixed a few small vaccume leaks. These repairs were done during the day time at 2 separate times, both of wich by the end of the day; THE TRUCK BEGAN RUNNING PERFECTLY.
UNTIL THE NEXT MORNING WHEN THE TRUCK WAS COLD! IT THEN BEGAN DOIGN THE EXACT SAME THING.
i have paid 3 mechanics and all 3 fixed the problem, they thought, until the truck was cold the nxt day and it began with the same hesitating and minor missing in firing. "More of a delay or hesitating in fuel injection or? Firing? So not sure which one. But. (Not so much a "missing in firing" "I don't think?" ) Anyway.
today it is warm outside and the truck is RUNNING PERFECTLY.
when it is not, the shifts from gear to gear even seem a little less smooth, thte idle is extremely low, it has major hesitation when gas pedal is depressed (when its in gear). THEN WHEN ITS REALLY WARM IN TEMPRATURE, "IT RUNS FLAWLESS!"
ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS?
have the same problem?
