okay so i was out playing in mud/puddles behind some factory today and sucked in a bunch of water.

truck never died but the filter was soaked, replaced it and it got better but the truck still has NO power.

then, while lookking at stuff I broke the stupid plastic t-fitting on the heater hose so after a mouthful of coolant i babied the truck home. backfiring like hell.

did i just pooch my truck? lol I plan to replace that t fitting, and pull the plugs tomorrow morning.

no water in the oil, due for a change tho.

You could still bend a rod and not have it stall out on you. Get the coolant issue fixed real quick. You can pull the plugs, might not help too much but you have a cylinder not firing properly with water still left in it...

At this point you may want to consider a compression test?

pull the spark plugs and crank it a couple of times. check your plugs too. definitely do a compression test on the cylinder that spooges the most water.

you lucked out if you were able to limp it home.
