Well I fixed an overheating problem with a new thermostat!Yaaa! Truck
started great int he morning, but as soon as it warmed up it decided
it did not want to start or so I thought. If I crank the starter and
hold it, it will eventually fire up. It does bang and ping irradically
but then finally catches with a roar of the engine(?) I popped the
hood and heard an awful sound while it is idling crazily, it is a load
hissing noise that goes away once the engine calms down. There is also
black smoke coming out of the tailpipe, however it stops once the
engine calms down and starts idling properly.
I know this is long, sorry.
Any suggestions on what to try? PCV valve already checked
