Sputters when i give it gas and jumps when picking up speed and sometimes idles rough?


You don't say how many miles its done so is it due a good engine service? Its no good sticking it on a diagnostic unit if its already sick. Get the basics done first.

Speedometer jumping up and down and car will not pick up speed.


Based on your actions, it sounds like a wiring problem.
Could be a weak connection at the cluster, or the speed sensor.

Voltage at battery at idle is 11.9 and at2000rpm it isover 14 volts.lights brighten and heater fan motor speed picks up considerably as rpms pick up from idle to 2000 rpm and on up.load tested battery and...


Did you check the voltage after a drive or after it was jumped. The battery may need some time to recharge if it was jumped before it gets checked. Have you checked for a possible draw on the battery? This could be a reason it dies every once in a while. I think that the Alternater is on its way out, it doesn't sound like it is charging like it should. It the new belt tight enough(some new belts stretch after a short time)

Truck will not stay running without giving gas after a jump off


when the battery goes dead it looses its memory on engine settings like idle speed.. two things you can do first one is to clean the throttle bore with carb cleaner... the other is to start with foot on gas and slowly bring it back to idle... it will pick up the idle air position to keep itself running if you do it slowly... everything happens over time so as the throttle gets dirty the computer makes these adjustment on its own and when the battery dies it starts out basicly at different percentage of idle control tht it really needs because of the carbon buildup on the throttle plates

Give truck gas losses power and speed


Possibly the timing chain has jumped a tooth or two. Or the timing is off all together needs a timing light test done on it.
