It won't start unless the steering wheel is in one upper position. Happens each time. One time it didn't start in that position too! Nothing happens if it's tilted at any other level, no lights, no power, etc.!

front disc, rear drum
When at idle, the engine will race up and then back down several times. Seems to be happening on a regular basis.
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
