I will start with the list of codes
P0442 P0306 P0645 P0117 P1281 P0132
P0208 P1596 P0135 P0135 P0138 P0121 p1492
The truck black smokes and has loss of power at times. Runs good sometimes. Has new plugs, TPD and coolant temperature sensor. Ran fine before changing coolant temperature sensor now it feels like it has a miss so ran the codes and got the above list.
Do you

Hello,

I would start at the EVAP system charcoal canister it sounds like it has gone bad and when the system purges it dumps raw fuel into the engine. This guide should help.

Please run down this guide and report back.

Cheers, Ken
