While changing the fuel filter, I had the hood popped to release the pressure via the Schrader valve on the engine. I noticed some corrosion on the battery terminals and poured a little classic coke on them to work it's magic while I was under the truck. Apparently the gunk built up on them was completing the connection it needed to run.( A lot of you are probably cringing at the neglect.) It won't happen again.
After about 2 hours of constant- baking soda and water scrubs with a toothbrush, I was able to get the connections off and clean them thoroughly. Now they look brand new and everything is running smoothly.
