When the engine is declining in power, I do notice a mild fuel rich smell, but no visual smoke, which doesn’t appear the fuel pump is the problem as many have suggested. I do notice back firing through the intake when I try to accelerate – kind of gives me the opinion its timing related. I took the truck to my mechanic and they found no codes or malfunctions.
Is there a suspect component either on the engine or inside the distributor that reads timing position that would be temperature sensitive if malfunctioning? Would a throttle positing component cause such unusual behavior? I’m definitely at a loss and would greatly appreciate your assistance.
have the same problem?
