For the past few days, my truck has been running pretty poor. Today, I went to put some gas in, it drove just fine. At the time the motor was at operating temp (180-190) It began sputtering, back firing, and surging.
I was able to limp it back home, after it died every time no throttle was applied.
I went out and bought a new crank position sensor, however, it only fixed the dying issue. I had a car that had a bad crank sensor with the same issue, and it fixed everything. But the truck is still idling and behaving like ****.
CEL is present, but I have no way to read it. I know it would save alot of time to get it checked.
Is the cat hollow? (truck sounds pretty healthy.... )
Need to check your plenum. That introduces a fairly serious vacuum leak, and could possibly give you the symptoms you are seeing. Also likes to foul out plugs fairly quickly, and destroy O2 sensors, and cats....
