Yes your truck has the on off method. Cycle the key three on off on off on leave it on. Look at the odometer it should show a number there. Most likely it going to show p1963. Or take it to a part store most will scan it for free. Let me know what it says. We will go from there.

Okay, so i just went out and did the 3 cycle method. No code came up, all it said was P ECU than said P DONE. I don't know if hooking up a scanner will help. But, i guess it's worth a shot.

On most cars, the codes will read out if the engine light is on - all you have to do is put the key into the RUN position.
Normally, to get codes, you put the key on OFF and then rapidly do OFF-ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON (on some cars you have to do four or five, not three, OFF-ON cycles). On our test 2002 car, the key did not go back to unlock, so it was ACC-ON-ACC-ON-ACC-ON.
You may have to have the parking brake firmly set for the codes to show!

just for the heck of it, check your gas cap out, you need a good seal, it can sometimes make your vehicle malfunction, if it is not tight

Tried that as well, and didn't seem to work. Haven't had a chance to check the fuel cap, but i will when i get a chance. I'm trying anything and everything, when i get the chance. Just trying to remedy the problem here.

I really do appreciate the help!

Thanks everyone!

I have been doing a little bit of research and have found out that the vp44 pumps go out often on these model year trucks. I'm beginning to wonder if it's related...

And again, I just checked the fuel cap and it looked fine. I know this might sound kind of dumb but... would an improper seal at the cap cause such a reaction like the one i'm describing?

I almost came close to buying an expensive code reader/scan tool from Snap-On this morning when he showed up at work but, I quickly talked myself out of it as i probably won't ever use it again other than on my own truck.

Probably don't need it, is all i'm thinking...

You could hook it up to a scanner but I don't think it'd needed at this point. It's had nothing to do with a gas cap its not like a car where you have to worry about pressure and evap. These trucks do have a lot of vp problems mostly do to low fuel pressure from the transfer pump. I don't think this is your problem normally if the transfer pump is bad the truck will have a hickup randomly. What it sounding like to me is the chip that was put in is sending an odd signal to ecm. Maybe the map sensor? Also I would take iat sensor out and clean it. you could just shook the chip and see what happens.

I've messed around with it the last few hours and found out none of the features work. I can't adjust fuel pressure, turbo timer, or any of the adjustable features. I'm assuming the chip only turns on when the truck turns on and thats it, nothing more.

I did however, find a disconnected EGT sensor and a plug on the exhaust manifold. Threads look stripped out on the sensor, could be one of the reasons why the chip isn't functioning properly. But, i doubt the chip has anything to do with the issue that i'm having, if it only turns on and nothing else.

The chip probably has a lot to do with it as it is tied into a lot of the sensors and manipulates them to change the fueling of the engine I would disconnect it all together and see what happens. It's possible that it is over fueling at idle because of a false reading.
