So little update finally got time to work on the truck. I put in new LED headlights, NGK wires, and some heet in the tank. Truck did have ngk wires already so i kept them unknown mileage on them. Truck seemed to idle decent, so i went and pulled a wore off one at a time no changes there. Then i figured why not try some sensors. First one MAF and bam it started running smooth with only a very light stumble in rpm.

Did you at least use a decent headlight like a Morimoto, JW Speaker or Trucklite? I am very vocal about people putting shitty ebay china crap in their headlight. While it may look "brighter" I can guarantee you it really is worse in almost every way. The color is off, more blue in a light makes it harder to focus, all the cheap ones people are willing to buy have zero beam control and just scatter light everywhere blinding drivers around you making you a hazard on the road and due to light being scattered everywhere it is NOT where it needs to be which is the road. The 33% of the population with astigmatism, me included, gets blinded to the point we often cannot see anything but the glare off those junky lights. The other 66% it is still a major annoyance and a major distraction.



It basically looks like the one on the left. Which one do you want coming head on to you?







With my rant over....


Glad you got it going and it was a simple fix! The little stumble could just be a cracked vacuum line or just a by product of a combination of tiny things. My truck has a miss when cold but only at an idle which only lasts about 30 seconds of running.

No problem ranting i bought the LED 7x6 name brand lights glass not plastic also. I hate HIDs only say that because the pic is for HIDs. I got a 6k white light and waiting on darkness to set them correctly so i don’t blind anyone by accident. Plus being 2/3 drop in a little truck I’m probably going to be the one blinded by every full size truck

Doesn't matter what the pic says. The wrong bulb in a housing not designed for it looks like the left. I love HID but it must be in a projector. I'm not sure I've found a glass housing 7x6 that was not designed for halogen. These days plastic lens is preferred. Plastic doesn't distort the beam patter like glass. 6000k has a strong blue content. Hard to find an LED under 5000k. I prefer a 4300-4500k. Daylight color. White with a hint of yellow. Easier on the eyes. I run 2900k fogs for the same reason. They are deep yellow. I'm happy that my car has active headlight adjusting, especially since it's way brighter/more intense than the stock HIDs. Those projectors are so sharp it can be hard to tell the lights are on if much above the level of the headlights. That also means I don't light up signs at all. The lights in my truck are similar, HID projectors.



You would be suprised by what will blind. I've been blinded by miatas scraping pavement when in a super duty because of their poor choice in lighting. Many (most) inexpensive headlight options are bad enough they cannot be properly aligned. On the flip side of that my truck is tall enough that my cutoff was on the roof of that same Miata this morning. Being aware of that I just shut off my lights as it was daylight.





I'm fairly vocal about lighting so don't feel like I'm calling you out or anything. I'm all for the brightest lights you can buy (I hope to have 20,000lms onthe truck some day) but it must be done without sacrificing those around me. I like LEDs for marker lights and such but I'm firmly under the impression that there are better options for headlights that are brighter and safer.





Either way I'm glad your little truck is running!
