    meola64 thanks for posting a possible solution, I checked this intiall but it wasn't it. I've taken it to a shop where they replace the Cam shaft posistion sensoer and the part it's attached to (like the diastributor portion) That was not it, they also put in a used computer tahat wasn't it ? There was a 30 amp fuse blown and that was replaced but not it. They gave up and it's back in my hands. I was told there is no spark ? WHERE DO i GO FROM HERE ?

    Thanks for the post ! I tried that early on and it wasn't it. Since posting the question I took the truck to a shop where they replaced the Camshaft posistion sensor and the part it's connected to (like the distributor lower half ) they have also replaced a 30 amp fuse that was bad and put in a used computer none of them fixed it. Now it's back in my hands and I'm at a loss HELP ! I was told there is no spark ? I will again push that fuel switch it's worth a try !

On passenger side, inside of cab there is a fuel inertia switch mounted on the firewall by where feet go. There is a button underneath, push it. This will reset switch. Truck should get fuel now and start. These switches get weak and if passenger kicks it truck will shut down. Will still turn over but not start.

    Pull plug out of the switch and bypass with a piece of wire, See if truck starts. switch could be bad and not working at all. If you can get a hold of a tool called injector tester light. You pull pull out of an injector, plug light into injector wire then turn truck over to see if light lights up. If so inertia switch good. do first thing at inertia switch.

    Thanks, I'll try to do the switch bypass. But that still in in the vein of no fuel the shop lead me to believe it's no spark. He mentioned he heard (?) the injectors pulsing ? when I asked him if it was getting fuel. Any suggestions about lake of spark I might try ?

I went over railroad tracks and my low beams went out.

From the description it would appear the filaments in both headlamp bulbs have blown/fused so inspection/replacement imminent.
Good luck!

Shaking wheels

It's something in your steering components or you tires. I've seen both. If your tires are pretty good, it could be your steering stablizer. It's like a shock asorber for you steering system. There also maybe some components wearing out in your steering system too though casuing the stablizer to wear out or unable to to asorb the shock from the bump.
