truck starts and idles perfectly, but you must feather accelelerator to get up to speed. will run great at all speeds, but will die at stop signs. will restart immediatly,
Occasionally when I have driven for 15-20 miles, shut it off, then when I am ready to go, it spins but never fires. Leave it for an hour and everything is good again. Replaced the fuel pump and the cam shaft position indicator, nothing.
