Default Any Ideas Out There?

Good Morning from Alberta, Canada!

I'll get right too it:

Last night I was driving my truck and noticed it was starting to drive sputtery, and kind of "choppy" for lack of a better word. At idle it was shaking with a mis-fire feel to it. I began to accelerate and it sputtered and was rather gutless, it then threw a flashing CEL at me. I replaced my sparkplugs (what a nightmare that was) last summer, and to those southern Americans, we have about a two week summer

I should note that the truck only acts up when the engine is warm. I have not scanned it yet, but any ideas?

Fuel pump delivery module. Located above your spare tire. It WILL go bad eventually so I would check/change it. Could be your problem. Do a search on here. You'll find everything you need to know about it. Common problem
