Check your fuel pump it may be going bad. Check your spark plugs and see if there is oil on one of them if so clean or replace. It could also be a coil or coil wire going bad. You have some testing to do.

Let me guess 305 and scottsdale?....could be silverado....

it sounds like your trucks fuel filter could be plugged.....when this happens you wont get enough fuel to the TBI and it wont have the necassary ponys in reserve.

"change the fuel filter" make shure that it is getting enough fuel/.....

if your ride does not get better.....it could be that your engine has lost compression.....due to worn cylinder walls and worn piston rings.

when this happens it starts eating the oil.....and will be powerless and smokey.......

try changing the fuel filter first..

....and you might try running some "RESTORE" engine treatment ......"BUT ONLY IF YOU ARE DESPERATE......IF YOU DONT FEEL CONFINDENT DONT DO IT"

hope this helps...

Does truck have to be running on my 1990 toyota 4-runner 4x4 ?


No, you can do it without the engine running. The power assist just makes braking easier. Just make sure you don't move the pedal till the bleeder is tight, then pump it back up an do it again. Start at the right rear and move towards the front left. Hope this helps.

4x4 1990 f150 will not start


Does the truck turn over but won’t start? If so there is a fusible link running from the starter solenoid behind the battery.
Also if you get nothing when you turn the key could be the solenoid. Its easy enough to jump the solenoid and check . Check all the fusible links coming off the power side of the solenoid and replace as needed.

2001 chev 4x4 fuel pump issues


I would try some starting fluid in the throttle body. If is runs with you spraying starting fluid, then you know its a fuel problem. If it turns out to be a fuel problem its probably the pump. You would need to then check for power at the pump.

Usually if you hear the starter solenoid click but the starter doesn't crank, its the starter. And since it was after a trip that is usually when starters are bad when they get hot.
