All spark plugs are new so are the wires. There all connected and nothing is loose plugs and wire wise. It doesn't skip bad at idle but apon acceleration it miss fires or skips pretty bad, my girlfriend drives the truck and she said it started kind of out of no where,

I put heat in it but it didn't help cause I thought it has water in the gas.
I'm gonna scan it for codes tomorrow, don't know if there is any cause the cel don't come on when there are codes,

Any ideas? Thanks

Yeah, find the right forum.

I think, optimistically, that your camshaft chain guides have disintegrated and you are totally screwed. Pessimistically, your engine troubles are the first indication that an alien invasion is in progress and all of our human brains, plus last years crop of Maine blueberries, are going to be made into smoothies.
