    I'll bet on the fuel filter. My truck did the same thing once. Hope it's not the fuel pump. They put those in the fuel tank on a Chevy.

    Probably a coil or the throttle position sensor.

    Kirbow sold the mech. but still has the tire store next door. Max Hammons, about ten miles up Hwy 33 is pretty good.

    You'll have to come back and tell all these shade tree mechanics what the real diagnosis was.

    I would agree with those two recommendations. Go with Max now.

    Jim Taylor Ford does a really good job. They never try to find something else wrong like most dealerships.

    If check engine light is on, it should have set a diagnostic code. You can go by autozone and let them hook a diagnostic code reader up to your truck (usually no charge) and get the code and that will tell you what may be wrong with it. It may save you some time and money or at least give you a heads up of what is wrong.
