I NEED HELP!
When my truck first starts it runs perfectly fine for about 2 or 3 minutes. Then as soon as it begins to warm up it starts having major trouble running.
To drive it after its started to warm up I have to rev it super high just to take off from a stop light. I pray that it will make it back home every time I try to take it to the grocery store 2 blocks away.
Once it's warmed up it just starts choking and dieing like it's not getting any air or fuel to the engine. It almost feels like someone is jamming the clutch in and out real fast when I'm trying to drive, the whole truck will shake and jump and I have to rev it super high just to keep it running long enough to get it into my driveway.
Then I have to wait about 2 hours or so for it to cool down again so I can drive it 2 or 3 blocks.
Luckily most of the places I go are very close. (work, store, etc..) but I'm planning on moving soon and NEED to get this fixed.
I've taken it to the mechanic 3 times already. The first time they said it needed the Throttle body cleaned. So they cleaned it and it kinda ran ok for about two days. Then it was right back to the same thing.
I took it in again and they said I needed a tune up and new plugs, wires and dist. cap. That didn't do anything either.
I don't know what to do now. I can't afford to keep taking it in and having them charge me to NOT fix the problem.
