I drove to do a few errands today and the truck ran fine but when I got in to leave it started, ran really rough and died and wont restart. It sounded like a vaccume line was off when I raised the hood. The sound was coming from the center rear of the engine where the vaccume pump is but I couldn't find a leak.
I've had a vehicle do this when the timing chain broke but it wouldn't fire. This fires once but never starts.
