This stupid truck of mine still doesn't want to run.
I have tested fuel pump, tests perfectly and rock solid.
IAC appears to function normally and be in order.
The truck idles perfectly, engages into gear with no trouble, but when you
step on the gas - motor cuts out completely.
I am befuddled. Oil is clean and dry. Coolant is clean and clear.
Everything appears to be in order.
Any thoughts? Is there a MAF on this thing? I don't believe there is, but
you never know.
Any thoughts or advice that anyone has would be greatly appreciated.
Absolutely. Dang thing cost me $56. It measures at a rock solid 37 psi
constantly without even the slightest hint of anything awry.
There is not much in the way of stalling. I will give an example. Last
night I started the truck. Idled fine in the driveway. I depressed the
brake, and shifted the truck into drive. Nothing happened, the truck
slipped into gear. I let off the brake, the truck did not move (should
have given an inch at least) and when I depressed the gas pedal, the engine
stopped. It did not chug or anything -just halts. This is consistent.
One other thing to note, once the motor stalls like that, it will not crank
again for at least 4 hours. Then it will start up with no problem,
however, I still have the symptoms described above.
I will check spark, however, seems unlikely to me seeing as the motor idles
with no miss or hiccups.
That brings up another question. I would normally take this thing to
Autozone and have 'em scan the codes, but I can't get the truck there. Is
there a way to read the codes myself without buying a crazy expensive tool
to do so?
Thanks for the advice Bob. I greatly appreciate it.
