I have recently encountered two problems with my pickup:
1. Upon the vehicle warming up, when you cut it off, it will turn over but
will not start up. If you let it sit for about 1 to 2 hours, it will start
and run as if there was never a problem. I have replaced the fuel filter,
mass air flow sensor, air filter, oxygen sensor, distributor cap, rotor,
wires, and plugs. I performed a computer self diagnostic and detected no
problems. I am inclined to believe the problem stems from the fuel pump
but, having it occur only upon warmup and only after cutting off the pickup
doesn't appear fuel pump related.
2. Upon applying brakes, I physically feel the brake pedal gradually
losing pressure and sinking to the car's deck. Unless I pump the brake
pedal 2-3 times to build up pressure, the brake pedal will continue to
sink, and I will eventually lose braking power and roll forward. I have
replaced the front disc brake pads. The rear drum brake pads do not appear
to be worn beyond specifications. I have generously bled all brakes.
Visual inspection of all brake components has revealed no leaks. I am not
losing brake fluid from the master cylinder.
