and the fender flares.... i got those on mind lol
i was misfiring BADDDD, i mean real bad, like i couldn't even make it to college before turning around to take 'er home. i replaced the 4th cylinder plug twice and then the 3rd cylinder started misfiring so i replaced that plug and now it's running like a damn dream. i suggest doing a full tune up, if you can. plugs and wires. i'm doing the other 4 plugs and the entire set of wires on friday.

i did a full tune up sometime ago.
also a complete injector and sensor clean up, that helped alot. but since the od port fuse was blown and the cig lighter one too- which seems to share a power line with the port, we couldnt scan it. im replacing the fuses tomorrow and hopefully we can scan it so we can fix the issue once and for all. im suspecting a faulty sensor, hopefully it wont be that bad

turned to be both coolant temp sensors and IAC valve.
we cleaned the IAC before, but seems that it didnt help.
the blown fuses were the cause the scanner didnt recognize the trucks ecu.
the truck is coming out tomorrow
