yes your truck has a charcoal canister. but i must say a fuel smell is not something to dismiss. I highly recomend that this truck be taken to a shop and inspected for leaks. there are uv light dyes that can be put in your fuel to help with this diagnostic. be safe

This can becaused by two things. when the computer is shut down/without power,and power is returned it goes to the factory settings. so if there is anny build up in the throttle body it will not understand were its closed thottle position is. before it was shut down it had learned it and adjusted it over time. so remove the hose that enters the intake. {with the engine not running} clean as best you can anny build up out of the throttle body. if you choose to use a spray cleaner put the cleaner on a rag and wipe out the debris. spraying liquid into the engine may cause damage... when your done take the truck for a short drive and it should start thr relearn prcedure by its self.

check to see if the dimmer is adjusted all the way down. if not it could be a faulty head lamp switch.
Question Answered: Could it be the solenoid

your problem may be that the starter motor is bad. to test this you will need some help and a test light. there will be two wires that attach to the starter motor solienoid. the large one should have power all the time and the small one will have power just when the key is held in the crank position. if you have both of those it is a good chance that the motor has failed. use a volt meter to be shure that you have 12 volts poor connections at the battery . can also cause a simular problem.

this may be caused by a alarm problem, try locking and unlocking the car from the drivers door and the pasenger door. also if ther is a key fob also try that.

in some caces the spark plug boot will melt to the spark plug and make this verry diffacult. try turning the boot on the plug back and forth. last resut is to cut the boot off and continue with new plug wires.when reinstalling put some dielectric grease in the boot this will help for the next maint. repair . some spark plug wire sets will come with a small ammount of grease. if not ask your part supplier for help.
Question Answered: went through some water

a question for you is how much water are we talking about. if you have driven in a large puddle or a flooded road? check for water entering the air filter. if it is soaked you might remove the spark plugs and make shure that the engine has not been stoped by water .This could cause engine damage.
