Hello everyone! I am a new member, but been an observer for quite some time! I bought this truck in jan 2014, and everything was fine until one spring morning in april 2014. I went to 7-11 for my weekend coffee. Once I got back into the truck it would turn over but not start. fuel pump was bad, took it to a local shop fixed it and replaced fuel filter.. Everything was fine for a couple weeks until it would randomly stall on me while driving a real clean cut too. Go to restart the truck turns on then stalls. I would repeat this process frantically until it would run and drive. Some of my friends were telling me "hey its just some moister in your fuel lines etc. you'll be fine".. I believed them because weeks would go by, and I would have no issues starting or running the truck around town.. however unsuspecting the truck would stall on me while going 45 mph, and would not notice until I had no power and seen my dash would be lit up with all the lights.. The truck would restart, but then again stall immediately. You could repeat this process 100 times, and it would do the same thing. Start as if it were going to catch, and then stall. Sadly this time a tow truck had to carry my mighty max off the road. Onward to the shop the guys so confident that its the fuel pump/filter again I paid 300 dollars and let him replace it. Only to have to same issues so I have it towed home. So now its in my drive way starting and stoping. Some cranks it will run and Idle for as long as I want, but will return to the same the next day.. Any ideas for I lose hope on my truck. One thing I should note, after the first fuel pump/filter replacement I started getting pinging like a pre ignition knock sound when I would be going a consistent speed.
Things I have replaced::
alternator/when bought it had the original from 1990
