so have you looked at your timing chain to see if it's in the correct position and hansn't jumped a tooth somewhere, or this has too few miles on it for this to happen?

I gave up bein' judge_roy at 4th place so I could start again without influence~

it has 198,000 and change and I haven't checked the timing chain.

doesn't cost nothin' to turn the engine around to see if it lines up properly...okay maybe the trouble of removing the timing cover, but will be worth it to rest assured...my toyota timing chain gave up at 140,000 put a new one and it is like we have a brand-new garbagecan (as Jose used to say (fellow mechanic))

thank you for the help.

Change the Pick-up Coil on both ends. One at front side of engine and other is under Distributer cap. Change Distributor Cap Too

bad crank sensor will not start. bad cam shaft will take a bit. your truck had a chain not bed... even loose chain, will start. check fuel pump for prime and fuel delivery at fuel rail. check injectors will noid light. check starter. "voltage drop test" battery. connections. resistance test. ignition components.
