Default Re: Need help diagnosing start up issues

When was your last tune up? Only way you should have a miss is if you aren't getting any spark. I would check them for that issue. I replaced mine in my old truck at 80k miles and they were rough. Some plugs only last 20-30k miles.

I finally got around to fixing the problem. It was a faulty throttle position sensor.

Sounds like a plan. I have to bolt up my front swaybar again and re-install my front skid plate.

I've still got a check engine light on. Hopefully after I drive it around a bit more it will go out.
