Need some help here if anyone can........
Bought this truck about 3 years ago for next to nothing. It has the 302
(5.0HO) and was in decent shape.
Over the last three years I have done the following repairs (in this
Replaced Water Pump
Replaced Ignition Control Module
Replaced Front engine seals
Replaced Rear engine seals
Replaced Transmission (rebuilt AOD by reputable co)
Lastly, about 4 weeks ago I replaced the valve cover gaskets (been leaking
since the day I bought the truck, just finally got around to changing them)
and while I was there, replace the upper intake manifold gasket and did
plugs, wires, cap and rotor.
Since I did those things last month, this truck has run like NEVER before.
The motor purrs, the idle speed is down to 'normal', plus I replaced a
BUNCH of vacuum lines that were broken.
However, in the last week or so, I have had trouble keeping the truck
running. It runs great when wide open, however at low speed (in-town
driving) everytime you hit the brake - the motor stops. It doesn't knock
and die slowly, it literally just stops running at around 1,500RPMS.
The check engine light never comes on, and there are no codes to read.
What is going on? The motor is full of oil. The radiator and water pump
working perfectly. The ignition works fine.
Last might, I took off to run an errand, and ended up having the truck
towed to a friends house. I went down a road and went to turn left, and it
died, and it would not restart.
After it was towed, it would restart, and it just kinda runs like there
might be a slight miss (but it is not real noticable.)
As soon as you take off, it dies.
I NEED HELP!!!
Anyone have any suggestions?
