Rasmataz:
This cat has been starting new threads asking the same old question about his 1994 truck. He dont seem to listen to what people tell him to check!

I have read ALOT of your replys to people, and have found you to be very good at being able to troubleshoot via the internet.

There is just something about this guy that makes me wanna sit down, smoke a cigarette, drink a beer, watch a chick flick then blow my brains out with a.40 caliber!

*btw cdowd. Its OXYGEN, but I will ALLOW you to call it O2

DCS1998 I appreciate your confidence in me. If people will listen to us they might end up learning something instead at times they try to educate us with something we've arleady learned thru experiences and certifying the ASE. In this particular case anything can cause a bad running engine-such as compression/fuel/ ignition problems etc

You need to do something about it-I've given all I got-you need to get a repair/service manual and track the wires.
