    I changed the heater core today along with the thermostat. Everything went in okay, but after I got it all back together and went for a drive the truck decides it wants to cut out /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif...Almost as if it is not getting fuel. I could not mess with it too much more as my son woke up /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif and my parents were wanting to leave????

    Any ideas where to start looking tomorrow???

    I'd also suggest looking at an ignition wire as a problem. Even with the mixture control solenoid disconnected, the vehicle will still run, as the MCS fails in the "WOT" position.
