Weird Problem

So I went to start my truck tonight and it started up and sputtered and was running really rough and the rpms were at about 500 and then it died so I started it back up and it cranked for maybe 1 or 2 seconds longer then it usally does so i bumped the gas pedal and its started right up. It has done this maybe 3 times since I have had it. The truck has 160k miles on it so im thinking maybe a sensor is going out is dirty?

Anyone else had this problem?

Try playing with the Throttle Position Sensor. I had problems with mine that a good cleaning resolved, but I also got a CEL leading me in that direction. Maybe the fuel filter needs replaced.

No I have no cel which im think is check engine light lol

I cleaned my MAF probably about 3 months ago I probably need to replace the fuel filter which ill probably try to do this week

The throttle sensor is at the back of the throttle body, held in by 2 tiny philips head screws. I'm trying to find you a decent picture.
