another trip to the dealership

So I finally brought my truck in to get checked out. The problem was that in 2nd gear when I kept it just above idle to keep a constant speed the truck would shake like somebody that didn't know how to drive a stick. Happens around the 40-50 mph area. They called me up and said that the main performance problem was that my fuel heater was KIA. Also he told me that there was a hot/ground wire that got melted for some kind of sensor that I can't remember, I was driving home in the wifes car talking on a cell phone. I hate driving and talking on a cell phone. Hopefully I can bring the truck home by Thursday after work. I just hope that takes care of the problem.

Just picked it back up. It was the fuel pressure regulator. I told them they could take the chip out to run it through there diagnostics but they didn't put it back in. I took a quick gander at it but I don't see how it goes. I know the connector side has to hook into there somewhere but I couldn't see the spot for it. Would anybody please help me out with this? I thought it plugged straight into the box from the rear to the front but maybe I have to push it in from the top.

Thank you much MrJohnWayne. I didn't know how much of a difference the chip made until I brought it home this afternoon, what a difference. Kudoo's to you all.
