i have not i was going to do that and an oil change tonight, i just bought the truck yesterday and he said it cuts off when the truck gets warm.. i drove it easily 10 miles home and not once did it cut off. i just got the normal starving for gas situation, its like its getting gas but its hesitating when you push the pedal.

see i drive a 2001 dodge ram 1500 for work and it needed a bad tune up did something similar to what my gmc is doing, is there a specific type of spark plug i should use for the tune up on my gmc ? i know most dodges like the original spark plugs was just wandering if these gmcs should take the normal factory spark plugs as well.
