Actually, an older Mitsubishi truck (mine is an '88) doesn't have a horn relay. The horn (located just behind and below the front grill on the driver side) has two leads. One has 12v that comes on when the ignition is turned on. The other has a lead going to the horn button. That button will ground the horn, causing it to blow. The ground actually AT the horn is not needed at all. To get at the horn to check it out, you remove the screw directly under (but on) the steering wheel. You can then flip up the horn assembly...just put pressure upward on the bottom of the horn and it will flip out. The lead coming to the horn should have 12V on it if the ignition is on. When you ground that lead, the horn should blow. If there is no voltage on the lead, the horn is probably shot (circuit is open) and you will need a new one. So, if your wiring is ok and your connectors are connected, either you have a bad horn or there is a problem with the horn itself in producing a ground.

mkimdaly: There is a product on the market called "Restore" which is an oil additive designed specifically for high mileage engines with oil consumption and smoking problems. Mind you, it will not fix evey situation, but it has resolved quite a few on cars which have come through my shop. "Mechanic in a can".
If I am not mistaken, it is designed to fill in small scratches that may be in the cylinder walls. I also has an effect on lifters and on oil seals. There is also a product put out by "Lubromoly" it is a product made in Germany and you may not find it on the shelves at normal retailers, but possibly carried at repair shops which specialize in imports. I carry this product line at my shop and have had good luck with many of their other products as well. There is a company called "Worldpac" but they only sell to repair shops. The product line I am talking about, I have to buy must be bought by the case.
I am sure there may be other comparable products on the market which you may find at "OReilley's or Autozone. You need to speak to their sales people and possibly ask to talk to one of the people who are at their wholesale desk at the back who may be even more familiar with the products. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY! The main reason many products don't seem to work well, is that they are not applied as the manufacturer had instructed in the can and/or box! A product as old as the hills and twice as dusty is "Marvel Mystery oil" I have used it on engines which had little or no compression and pulled the plugs, poured the oil in the cylinders and let it sit over night. I would spin the engine over in the morning to blow the oil out, screw the plugs back in and fire the engine back up. There have been many times than I have had engine regain compression because the oil freed up rings that had stuck to the pistons. This oil can be added to the motor oil and the GAS! As far as the type of oil to use in the engine: It really depends on how well you have taken care of your engine to begin with. If you have done frequent oil and filter changes and the engine is relatively clean inside, I would run a 20W-40 with the additive and in my shop, I happen to use Castrol. Although most premium oils will perform quite well. If you have an engine with a lot of sludge buildup inside it, the sludge is probably the only thing holding it together. WARNING!!!!! DO NOT USE ANY KIND OF ENGINE FLUSH DESIGNED TO CLEAN THE INTERNALS OF THE ENGINE! When I refer to this, I mean a product that instructs you to put it in, run the engine for a while, drain it and then replace the oil and filter. YOU WILL IN ALL LIKELY HOOD DO MORE HARM TO THE ENGINE THAN HELP!
I hope I have answered your question.

How many miles?
Could be a bent pushrod.
Could be just a high mile engine that needs overhauld.
Could be you engine needs higher octane fuel...as engines get older and worn they will benifit from higher octane.

First thing I'd recommend doing is getting a benley or Haynes repair manual. Your fuel filter my be internal off the fuel sender in the gas tank.
