I pick it up, starts right up, drive it around and start and stop it for 20 minutes at a time while I run errands to check it out. Everything is golden.
Until I park it at the house, do some work for 1/2 hour or so and then go to get back in the truck. Fire it up, and it doesn't run. Wonderful.
This time the truck always "starts" but is barely running and is just sputtering. Nervous needles, all the indicator lights on the dash doing a disco dance, and the truck is hopping up and down.... and I smell a lot of fuel again.
Interesting. Well, I may look at it some more, but since I paid a mechanic for a new battery and a very small labor charge, I'm taking it back for them to fix. Again. Sweet.
It seemed like the battery wasn't the issue, but maybe it was one of the issues or something. We'll see.
I'll continue to update in case anyone is interested.

sounds to me from internet sleuthing that the fuel pump among other things rely on input from the crankshaft sensor. Spark also plays into the mix as if the crankshaft sensor isn't able to figure out where top-dead-center is, then ignition will be off, fuel is off, and whatever else will become problems... or something...
Anyway, anyone else who happens to peruse this thread have this sensor go bad or go out?

Now back in shop. I forgot to mention the first time i got it to run I had messed with one of the coils so I thought I was onto something, when I unplugged that coil it continued to run sputtering, plugged it back in no change, unplugged different coil would not run at all. messed with the first coil again and it started right up. bought a new coil but that did no good. Get a call from the shop last night asking for the old coil as the truck now has one that started to balloon up and look like it was going to explode. I have had this truck since new and now that it is out of warranty it takes a crap. Anyhow sorry for the long crazy post but lets keep each other up to date and figure this damn thing out. Thanks
