It sounds like you are having a fuel pump problem. I have seen this more that once on Chevy's. You need to check the fuel pressure. Any below 50 PSI you need a fuel pump.

This sounds like the brake light switch or the control switch on the brake pedal is bad or loose. Check under the dash above the brake pedal there should be one or two switches that tell the brake lights to come on and the cruise control to shut down.

Check to ensure your glow plugs are functioning properly.

When i start my vehicle on it will immediately start idoling and when i drive it it idols as well the idol or whatever like i dont know if it idols ubt it does shake


it sounds like the engine is "starving" meaning the mass air controle is not set right same thing happends to same exact truck only way to find out without a mechanic is take off the plastic on the engine and look in the top back of the engine and there should be a black plastic piece with a metal bar going into a metal piece if the plastic piece is not in the grove then it has to be fixed so it dosnt come out of it(idk how to fix it but in can be rigged to stay in the groove)

Four wheel drive


This could be defective 4X4 actuator motor or jammed transfer case. Has the fluid ever been changed in the transfer case? if not that can cause the case to jam and not engage.

High idol all the time& tranny problems


Check for vacuum leaks on the high idol. You have a speed sensor or wiring issue with the tranny. Will need to be checked somewhere with a computer to know for sure on the tranny.
