44,400 island miles, straight 6. After my "mechanic" replaced the water pump, the truck began starting very hard--- you have to give it alot of gas, and then once it does start, it smokes (white) and the engine will either rev way up, or chug and stall. After about 30 seconds it seems to be fine and then it runs right. He says a third of the crank shaft position sensor does note have continuity. Would a bad crank shaft position sensor cause the hard start followed by irregular revving?
have the same problem?
