Does it have new plug wires? If not look under hood at night with no lights shining on the motor. Crank truck up and when it starts missing Look for sparks coming from your plug wires and dist. Cap. If spark is seen replace wires and or cap.( you will only be able to see it if it is dark outside). Hope this helps
