Truck is acting all kinds of funny. Need Help !
i have been having this intermittent problem for the past couple of months. When i start the truck first thing in the morning it starts up fine. if i only let it idle for a minute it will sometimes drive fine, other times it acts kind of like the ebpv is on even though i know it isn't like when it is 70 degrees outside and it goes back to normal after 5 minutes of driving. If i just let it idle for a while it will start idling really hard shaking and sputtering to the point it shuts down. if i don't catch it in time it is very difficult to restart. if i catch it in time or if i get it restarted i have to floor the pedal and it will barely hold 600rpm, shake, and blow white smoke like crazy. if i manage to get it rolling it will run rough, shift hard, and lug like im climbing a steep grade(its an automatic) if it makes it to fourth gear. then all of a sudden ten minutes later it gets its act together and runs just fine. it doesn't do this evertime either i would say this has happened about three times a month. it has already happened three times this week though. it just had the fuel filter replaced and it was in for the cam sensor recall which had no impact on how the truck ran. my local autozones obd2 scanner couldn't do my truck(2002 7.3L) so i am at a loss for what to do here. my livelyhood is dependent upon this truck so i need help !
