I know what I would do- take it to a good mechanic- it is hard for me to diagnose problems when the owner has already been working on a truck and replacing things- I would get it running, then trade it for a nice old truck with a carb and no computer- if you want to work on trucks yourself- those are a lot easier

Thanks, but I want to learn about this truck. It has sentimental value.
