    Do the rpms fluctuate while you're moving or just at idle? And does it do it once the truck is warmed up or just when it's cold? Any surging of rpms while on the hwy or again, just at idle?

    Could be a vacuum leak or the idle air control valve.

    Took the throttle body off today and cleaned it real good...pleanum was good. After cleaning I noticed my rpm gauge still fluctuated but not as bad. Any ideas in what would help the rpms out?

    No codes. Hmm. There are a host of possibilities. Could be an o2 sensor. If you're going to replace one, you might as well replace both. BUT BEFORE SPENDING MONEY ON THOSE.. Could be the plenum gasket. Take the throttle body off and take a wire with a small rag. Stick it down in there and see if there is any oil. If there is, change the plenum gasket. And give the TB and good clean while you have it off. Another possible thing to check would be the dash temp sensor. The wires leading to it might be rotten (To the right and rear of the t-stat housing looking from the front).
    If none of those work, you could try a new fuel pump. But I think that is the least likely.

    Doesn't Pull any codes as the Check Engine Light is NOT on..just the Check Gauges light..but i have to crank it back up to get going again so it clears the light until the next stop and or time it decides to act up.

    Have you taken it in to have the codes read?

    Part 2:
    I am desperate Also, I had a guy replace my solenoids in the transmission saying it was getting stuck in 2nd gear causing the engine to choke out but his job worked for about 2 days and now its back at it again maybe that was part 1 of a bigger problem. Also upon putting the new alternator on it worked for about 24 hours as well then back to the same problem like I said I am desperate

    Thanks! I am having trouble with my truck stalling at any stop sign or stop lights also tonight I could just put my foot on the brake and shift gears and it would power down and the check gauges light would come on. I unplugged my alternator and ran strictly off the battery and then truck did fine just the check gauges light came on (as it should) but it allowed the truck to continue to drive. With the alternator plugged in the check gauges like would come on and it would power down the truck Heres the skinny Alternator is new and so is the battery, Fuse box has been checked and so have the ground wires Nobody can seem to help me on this Also, during all this my RPM gauge is floating up and down as well as my battery gauge.
