engine cranks fine when cold, but when hot you must push the gas pedel to the floor. once you put it in gear and get it moving it runs fine. also i'm getting a temp sensor fault. i replaced the sensor, but am still getting the fault.
(1) Answer
When you push the pedal to the floor while cranking that is a 'clear flood' mode, so your truck is running to rich when it gets hot, which is most likely a temp sensor problem. There is more than one temp sensor and/or it could be a wiring problem to the temp sensor as well. Good Luck!
