Ok, as far as fuel filter it was replaced the same time the air filter was which was less and 5,000 miles ago. If the thermostat was bad, would the temp gauge read high? If so I don't think that is it since even when in a hard pull with the high outside temp the never went above half way on the gauge and when not pulling it stays below the n in normal. Is there an easy way to tell if the lift pump in the valley is bad, and where is it???
Don't know much about working on one other than maintenance.
Haven't noticed any power loss around town, but you can tell it doesn't get driven much, used mainly as a farm truck. I know a waste of a good truck. During cold weather or cool weather, I can feel a big lug on it at certain times and it makes kind of like a hissing noise when it does this but I figured it was part of the cold engine sequence to get it warmed up, but it does seem a bit excessive and I don't remember it always doing that. Also I have not noticed any smoke, however it has been quitting without warning here recently. When it quits sometimes it takes a little to get it started again. It quit right before we left on vacation and did not quit at all on the trip.
Thanks for the quick replies.
