after sitting all night truck will start right off, after a short trip it will not start  but grind and grind then I can sometimes hit the gas pedal and it will start, but die shortly,  then try again and it will start

1 Answer


Check and replace air filter if necessary, clean throttle with throttle body cleaner, replace fuel filter if have not done so in a while add some Lucas Fuel Injector cleaner to gas tank. Just some general maintenance things to try first. Also clean or replace Idle Air Control valve or Mass Air Flow sensor depending on which one your vehicle has.
