I have a 1999 5.4 f150 4x4 loud knocking started on passanger side also guages all pinned and bounced around truck runs rough and stalls what could it be

it sounds like a critical internal failure is eminent . if the oil pressure is ok,it could be a bent or broken valve as the exhaust leak can let the valves cool to fast and warp. however it sounds more critical than that. do a compression test on that side and see if the #'s are consistent.

My plymouth, voyager turns off while I'm driving it down the road..

Just an Idea. When it dies next time check the relay temperatures, if you can. Once I had a fan relay which would over heat and the radiator fan would not work. After relay cooled down it would work(This usually happened when I was stuck in traffic). Could be a fuel pump relay. If relay is a lot hotter than the other relay could be bad relay. My thought is it will not cost you anything to try it. I think it may be something electrical over heating. 30 years ago my thought would have been the coil, when the coil started going bad it would heat up and the car would die till it cooled off.

did your mechaniic check the fuel injectors, it very possibly could be 1 of them acting up, also have your mechanic to give your vehicle a fuel pressure test, this will tell if the pressure is within the specs for the year and engine size that you have. also have him to check the coil, or coils, 1 of them could be heating up, and breaking down, and after cooled for a while, they have been known to work again, untill they heat up again. also have him to check the fuel pump relay to see if it is getting bad, he might have to tempoarily replace it with another one just to see if it is acting up.

Cruise control light will not come on after truck warms up 2004 dodge ram pick-up Cruise works ok when first using it , after driving to my destination, shutting off the truck. 15 min later driving again,...

After the light goes out does it come back on while driving down the road?
If it does this sounds as if you may have a heat sensitive problem at the cruise motor. this has a sensoe that turns the light on when it is engaged. when you turn it off and sits a while does the heat under the hood goes higher expanding the circuts an open circut. You may have to replace the board in the motor.
