have you tried checking fuel pressure? could maybe be a hall effects sensor going bad.

Fuel pressure seems fine it almost acts like getting to much fuel and flooding out and like I mentioned you can smell the fuel and where is Hall effects sensor located and what is its function?

the hall effects sensor is in the distributor. it control both fuel and spark. there is also a chance it might be a o2 sensor going bad. have you checked codes to see if the computer sees any issues?

Okay how could I test that then? And the only codes I have got from it are Codes: 12, 37, 23 and 55 which was end of the codes. Just really frustrating to me

that code 23 is a bit strange but the rest are normal codes. i am not really super familiar with how to test the hall effects sensor. the sensor is secured to the distributor with 2 or 3 screws. it is possible that it might be failing. i don't know whether it is the age or mileage that causes the issues but it almost sounds like a lot more people have been having issues lately that sound like hall effect sensors.

Mine seems old and beat like I said and from what I read about a failing Hall effects s most sounds about right and my truck has 90,000 miles on her and as for how old the distributor itself or Hall effects sensor I’m not sure but I changed distributor cap wires and plugs... and what are some good symptoms that could pin point it to the Hall effects sensor in your opinion?..

i don't really remember the symptoms of a hall effect sensor going bad. i have not really had to do much work with TBI trucks lately. it is just one of the main sensors that tells the computer what the engine is doing and when to fire the injectors.

i believe code 23 is for the temp sensor on the throttle body. it shouldn't effect how it runs. i am pretty sure that is mainly there to help with hot starts. it is really not needed and only the v8's got it. the 6's didn't have it.
