The truck ran perfectly, then sat for about 1 year, now it will start (most of the time) Idle rarely, and stall all the time. It sometimes stalls right away, sometimes after 10 minutes and sometimes after a few days. I will let it idle and it will almost stall for a few minutes then run perfectly, and vise versa. It usually lacks power, and sputters, cold or warm doesn't affect it, the level of gas has no effect. It does not burn oil, or have any other problems.
I will start by telling you the parts I have changed (in hind sight a stupid move)
Fuel pump, Fuel filter, Fuel filler neck(+ drained tank), Rebuilt carb (removed rust built up from filler neck), air filter, wires, cap and rotor, plugs. New vacuum lines. Checked egr and timing.
I've taken this truck to three separate shops and after extensive work, problems remained unsolved.
I've noticed slight improvements (brief) from the plugs/ wires and rotor.
Please HELP I've been defeated and am out of idea's. Very sad. The wife and dog look at me differently.
have the same problem?
