BigFuel, you have been very generous with your time and knowledge helping me out here! Thank you. I will do these diagnostics and see what I come up with.
A confession for ya here, I was not very smart in buying my truck. I saw the pictures and description on craigslist, drove an hour and half to look at it, was blinded by the fact that it had EVERYTHING I wanted including be year and bought it. Did all this not knowing that the front end was shot, the timing cover had a crack, etc. etc. Hell, even the 4-wheel drive stick was not there but the dude selling it had one loose in the truck and said it just needed to be put on.
SO I have dropped cash on all new ball joints, tie-rods, etc. A new timing cover which required pulling the engine out (not me the mechanic and maybe I got bamboozled on that one too), I put the new starter on, the clearance lights were never wired in ... just decorations so I wired those up, gotta fuel leak in the valley somewhere and who knows what else.
That's my sermon and I'm stickin' to it.
