Question about Cars & Trucks
I was driving up hill on a highway as the truck kicked down it started to loose speed as I applied more fuel it stayed barely running at 45 MPH and then backfired a couple times during about 1 mile and died.I was not able to start it right away but once i let it set for a couple minutes it will start and idle is smooth, that is untill put it into drive or apply fuel. I am able to start it again and it idles rough smooth out and again and there is rough idle in park and then (noted:a backfire comming from front of intake/ trottle body) it stalls and dies when put into drive then i cant start it again for 3 to 4 minutes~ my thoughs are Transmission / gear box along with TPS ~any thoughts out there

Sounds like the injectors may be bad or just really dirty. You say that the truck is only used as a plow truck, so I would assume that it sits alot. If you dont add any fuel stabilizer to the tank, the fuel will start to degrade and the will gum up your injectors. One thing you can do is to pull the air cleaner assembly off and look at the injectors while the truck is running. Look at the bottom of the injectors while it is running. The injectors shouldbe spraying fuel with a fan spray of fine mist. If you see any drips of fuel in the this fine mist, that injector is at least dirty or on its way out. I would recommend that you change your fuel filter and then get some fresh fuel and the purchase some Seafoam fuel injector cleaner from your local parts store. Dont mess around with anything else. GET SEAFOAM. If it is in a plastic bottle it is not strong enough to do anything. Seafoam is in a metal can. Dump the seafoam in and run the truck as much as you can. This will help clean out the injectors.

Very common problem is about a dime size hole wearing in the rubber elbow on the PCV valve located on the driver side rear of the intake manifold.
