Truck spits and sputters and jerks around while driving but it is only for a brief 5-10 secs, and then it has a hard time starting up and then it will crank and run perfectly fine after that. Im thinking that it is my fuel pump, filter and/or EGR Valve.
Truck has done it
multiple times before and
it has done it at different
times also not a certain
electronic engine controls- have a shop look at it- they can diagnose it, easily
Fuel pump and EGR are expensive guesses besides, EGR just cuts down your power or leaks vacuum - no spit and sputter. Fuel pump either works or it doesn't, Fuel filter would be a problem all of the time. More likely is the ignition system - a coil, cap and rotor, or the sensors that the PCM uses to trigger the ignition system. You're better off taking it to a reputable shop and having it diagnosed - unless you're wealthy enough to throw money at it.
Maybe it's the spark plugs.
I changed the spark plugs. Maybe now change the coil packs????
You can check the coil packs individually with a strobing light thing it will tell you wich one is not working...if that is the problem
Had a similar problem along with no starts. Coil wire was bad.
