Try a scan, you may have bad o2 sensors which can make it run rich.

Another problem could be a fuel injector that is leaking. You have to remove the plugs one at a time an look at the ignitor see if there is fuel on it to know which injector is leaking.

There can also be problems with idle air controls or even the main computer, but start with the scan. Most Advance and Autozones will do it for free.

Hope this helps.

Can water in gas do alot to my truck and, does it run ruff?


It will not hurt the engine as long as it is clean water, muddy water will clog everything. You must drain the system and flush all water out ASAP.
