Question Asked: 

I bought some fuel that had water in it a few weeks back... after cycling out the bad stuff, changing the fuel filter, the spark plugs and the ignition coils.. the truck is still missing in the #2 cylinder. I had 2 second opinions as well as mine... there is n knocking, she still missing. we figured maybe the fuel injector, so I changed it. still missing. I am going in for a diagnostic run on Wednesday as the only local diagnostic machine is down till then, how ever both my mechanic buddies and I are all kinda stumped. I am thnkin it might be the contact to the ignition coil. I should find out for after the diagnostic, but just curious what your thought's on it might be.

Question Answered: 

yes. it is a safety issue. bring to a shop for est. is not only a safety issue but WILL spread damage to rest of the steering components as well as the front suspension. warping comes from over heating the disks(overloading the vehicle, constant heavy foot on the brakes, premium pads used with generic disks, failing calipers and worn out wheel bearings). when choosing new disks, may want to consider upgrade to drilled and slotted style as they disipate heat much better than conventional disks. result is they resist warping due to heavy breaking.
