Default Re: Truck won't start sometimes. It fires but dies after 1 sec. Also have some stumbl

Hey guys, I just wanted to thank all of you for all of your input... It helped me out immensely and I was able to figure out what was causing the problem.

I got a PCM from the junk yard and installed that bad boy in there. Truck started right up on the first try. So it WAS the PCM that caused all this... or so I thought...

Then I tried taking the SuperChip module off of my old PCM and put it back in.. Guess what.. It started with the old PCM too..

So this entire time the SuperChip was the cause of my starting problems.

I was bummed so I tried installing the SuperChip in the "new" PCM and reinstalled it in the truck.. DIDN'T START... Stupid SuperChip.. Anyone need a PCM?? lol
