95 with extremely rough idle and check engine light
Not as urgent as some other's problems here, but I do need some help as I'm out of my league...
Couple of days ago I drove my truck across town, shut it down to do my stuff and when I came back out it stumbled to life and a bit of cranking, not excessive, just more than normal and it idled like absolute crap. Almost like it was missing a cylinder. I've got a TS tuner, stays in stock or economy 99% of the time and the idle was smoothest in the economy setting.
My buddy suggested unplugged the injector harness one at a time to see if there was any difference in the way it ran - didn't change anything. It's running rough enough that I'm not sure it's going to start every time I get in the truck and I'm worried about breaking it really bad. It does feel like the engine is de-fueling at anything past 1/2 throttle or 2k rpms so it's hard to get out of my own way on the road.
Does anyone have a code reader around the Oceanside, CA area so that I can find out what is going on or have any ideas of something else I can check? There were ZERO problems before this happened.
I did plan on doing a rebuild since it's at 322k miles but the place I was going to have it done at is 300 miles away otherwise I would just drive it there.

Currently spending more time in the repairs department than the mods department...
