When I plugged in the computer and scanned it . It said random miss fire what do I need to do.

Bleed brakes

Bleed brakes

After it sparked once i disconnected it. Got the new one in. But now it wont start. It will crankover easily, i can hear the fuel pump kick on. And i checked the fuses. No luck.. any advice?

No symptoms at all no codes or anything we just parked Sunday evening went out Monday morning to and it would not start. After reading several posts on this site we changed cam sensor, then crankshaft sensor (which was the issue by the way but my son did not seat it correctly) so still would not start so we moved down the line and tested the module and coil ended up buying new ones of those as well and still would not start. So I figured I would go backward and look at crankshaft sensor as the common issue on this site is corrected with that. So took it off and plugged it back in and it started right up but man does it run bad! Popping and chugging and we are now getting codes for misfire and crankshaft position sensor. The old one did not have any of the "washers" shims and looks like it was slightly worn but only on one side not like some of the photos and videos with a small chunk rubbed of so we only used one of the shims (there were two in the box) should we remove a shim or add another or take it back and get a new part?

I took my truck to my mechanic yesterday to have the rear wheel bearings replaced & he discovered that the differential gears had some chipped teeth on the gears and metal shavings in the gear oil pan cover. He said that, I need to have the rear end rebuilt. My truck has 174,535mi. I'm wondering how costly this repair will be & if I should have my mechanic do the repair or if another shop can be recommended

But it is throwing the p0443 code and sometimes the MAF sensor code. It just started randomly while driving down the road 2 days ago.

It will crank over and start. Sometimes for a second sometimes for 30 seconds. After reading it sounds like the system is not building enough pressure. I do not have the smoke system to perform that test. But it is throwing the p0443 code and sometimes the MAF sensor code. It just started randomly while driving down the road 2 days ago.
