Checked the sensor today and here are the results. When cold my garage was -1 degrees C it reads 3.75k ohms. Don't know if it's fine or it needs replacing. Found one where I live locally but the price is $54, Cad.

Well, the increase in resistance when it is colder follows along with the way it should be. So that’s an indication it may be good. Did you check for voltage on the connector?

Hmm. Try running the truck until it warms up and starts to run badly. It could be the temp sensor malfunctions at that point. Check the resistance on it then to see what it reads. 90 degrees C should be around 250 ohms.

After changing my radiator and the sensor took it for a short drive maybe 10min. Didnít stall once and everything was really smooth. Went work today and itís a 30-45min commute stalled few times on the way. Now I donít know what to do. Could it be fuel injectors. Few shops told me to change fuel injectors. Donít know if this helps but the truck is at 160,000 Km

You can check the resistance on the injectors. Each should have about 14 Ohms.

Good to know. Voltmeter stop working today for some reason. Canít check it right now but the issue is starting to get really bad stalling everywhere when you slow down or stop. Starts every time and the shifter shakes like crazy and sometimes something clicks and itís really smooth. Been pouring my money into gas drinking a lot of gas right now.

This sounds like a classic bad alternator. They can technically test good too.
