    Ok I went over and took a look at the truck today. The issue was not on the fuel pump relay but on the EGI relay. After a little Google-fu, all signs point to a bad mass airflow sensor. I have a new one ordered that should be here Tuesday. Iíll post...

    Necessary, no. There are enough long non- Christian marriages to prove that point. Helpful, absolutely. I would compare it to taking a gravel road instead of the black top. Both can get you there but the black top is smoother and easier. That isnít...

    The stalling/starting cycle only happens while driving, not at idle. The best that I can describe it is push starting a standard (which it is) it will stall out and then heave and restart itself like when you dump the clutch on a rolling vehicle to...

    I canít say that I blame them. The clutch on my dadís F250 was intense. If you drove it in traffic for very long your left leg started to cramp. I learned quickly to put it in granny low and just crawl along. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
