I purchased this truck about three years ago (really good price). I did not have the time or need to get it repaired and did not want to deal with ridiculous CA smog regulations. When I purchased it the check engine light was on. I did some troubleshooting and replaced the fuel filter, idle air control valve and throttle position sensor. This took care of the CEL (check engine light). I then tried to have it smogged and it failed because it was smoking (valve cover leaks). In July I purchased valve cover gaskets, plugs, wires, cap and rotor to clean things up and make it run better. It passed smog in September and my son started driving it. It ran well for about two months. One day my son was driving to work and the truck stalled (in neighborhood) and would not restart. I pushed it out of the road and went back to get it home a couple of days later. It started immediately, I drove it home (half a mile) and switched the fuel tanks a couple of times without issue. I hooked it up to my tester and it produced a code 67 for a neutral position switch problem. We replaced that and it started and drove great for a couple of days. Then it happened again. Driving around the neighborhood it stalled and would not start again. It took a few days to get back to it and again once it was started it drove home fine (again, only about an eighth of a mile). I again hooked up the tester to the truck and it returned a Code 11 (All Clear). I am thinking it is a fuel issue of some kind. Truck sat for a while (three years) so I am wondering if there might some junk in the fuel tank (s) that could be clogging things up. I do not think there is a pump problem because it does run after it sits for a couple of days. I appreciate any help you can give.
have the same problem?
