    I got in my truck after work today, and I let it warm up til she was idling at about 1k rpms. I put it in drive and she didnt start to roll at all. Usually it will move on its own without having to give it any throttle. I slowly pushed the accelerator and the truck moved like normal. I noticed that the brakes were very very thouchy. As in, I barely depressed the brake pedal and the truck stopped real real quick. I checked all of the drive shafts and nothing was wrapped around them. the brakes didnt smell like they were stuck and they were not extremely hot. I could place a finger on them with no burning.
    Guys I have no idea what the crap is wrong! I dont wanna eff up my tranny or anything else as Ive had the truck for only 6 months. Any input and comments would be a great help!

    Ideas?

    The thing is that this is the first time that it has done it. Couple of weeks ago when it got down to bout 8 degrees it didnt do it.

    it usually takes a while for the truck to roll itself. And for the brakes, its just cold out. Mine are always touchy in the mornings.

    I seriously wouldnt worry about it, these trucks have been tested before put out on the road, lots of people dont warm their trucks up, i do, Its great that you do it :)
    my truck does it sometimes to. Your truck is fine, no worries

    If it was really cold your tires were probably deflated so it took alittle more umph to get it going. I think your okay. Plus all your fluids were probably cold.

    Suggest in the future you try the german idea of car warm ups. Get in it, start and drive away very slowly. I know your owner's manual probably says let it idle till it's warm but the germans claim its better to start and drive very slowly as this will aid in warming the vehicle up and will help get the lubrication system working in a shorter amount of time.

    Just remember...drive slowly until it warms up. No highway speeds and no driving like a wild man.

    Just a suggestion...it seems to work for me and my 95 model....

    Some times yes. Sometimes no. Depends where the ice is. I get it a lot (specailly in the last few days on the east coast).

    if it was cold and rained or you had parked in a wet spot, the truck may have frozen to the ground..happened to me before.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    The German idea?

    It was doing this the entire way home on and off
    I usually just let the truck warm up so the cab is warm

    If my truck can start up when the engine temp is 78* and go without a hitch I'm sure yours is fine too.
