Hard start this morning, died on the way to work, no start
hey guys, so like the title says, my truck had an unusually hard start this morning with a good size puff of white smoke. It drove fine for 10 miles then just quit while i was driving uphill. tried to crank it back to life but nothing. had it towed home and it cooled off still nothing, doesnt even want to sputter.
its got fuel to the fuel bowl, two month old batteries, oil change about 1k ago. i borrowed a scan gauge II in an attempt to read the ICP and ICR but couldnt get it to read for some reason, anyone have any insight on getting the scan gauge to read?? The tach moves while cranking so the CPS should be fine. I put a new ICP sensor in it about 2 months ago, tried unplugging it, still wouldnt start.
I was going to rebuild the ICR if i can get a rebuild kit locally and see if that helps.
where else should I start looking? I really gotta get this thing running again.
