    Hi again, I have been having a problem when cold starting my truck, it starts right up everytime but wants to die and if it doesnt it idels around 500 rpm. It is also hit and miss, sometimes it starts and idles just fine like it used to. It has new O2 sensor and new MAF. Any ideas?

    you can go eithewr or on the wires.........but ones from autozone are probably cheaper than the dealer. cleran that throttle body too, and maybe run a seafoam treatment thru the truck.....should help out. thanks for the compliments!!:)
