Severe loss of power, with back fire thru carb and exaust, until it dies. Engine will restart immediately. After warm up, it runs fine with the exception that it dies (withfrequency) upon deceleration for a stop>

Replaced water pump and thermostat 4 times. Never had visi.ble leak

It happens after truck has run for about 5 minutes
No codes

The pump itself? When you feel it up with gas I notice when the tank gets full? It drips underneath near the filler hose. Could that be it?

Also replaced tps & idle air control valve. Does not overheat. I thought the coolant temp sensor was mostly for gauge. Has new head & intake gaskets, good oil pressure & fuel pressure. No codes. Dies every time temp sensor plugged in. Never dies when unplugged

we can fill it and it will be empty with in a cuple of miles and that stuff gets exspecive after a while weve replaced it and thet still didnt work and when we hit the break it tends to shake when its going empty on the steering fluid

I got a code P0206 in the odometer by turning the key three times can you tell me what is wrong with he truck

I would like to know how to find out the engine size when you know the engine isn't the original engine that the truck came from the factory with. I always have to get a totally different oil filter than the books call for, for the truck. The books call for a large base oil filte which definitely will not work. I have to buy the small base oil filter.
