I replaced mine at about 70K for very erratic shifting (like it was hunting for some non-existent gear, up/down while trying to drive). So far so good 84K now. Maybe it's the TPS you're buying. ...

I believe that the CEL will reset if there are no errors detected for "x" number of samples by the computer. I guess it's possible that small leak could "heal" itself at least for a short time.

I think I remember a comment saying that one cause of the engine stopping when the truck stops is a bad signal from the transmission that locks up the torque converter which stalls the engine. You...

You can do a quick check to see if it's a fuel problem. Spray a LITTLE starter fluid into the throttle body and try to start it. If it fires, it will only bang one or so times. That will tell you...

If the "tapping" goes away after a few minutes, it's probably a lifter pumping up. If one of the cylinders is 0 psi compression, there must be a sizable leak on that cylinder. Seems like most of...
