Drivetrain & engine help please
Hey guys, on the truck in my sig below I have a couple problems:
1. There is a clunk/thumping sound on the front right side when going over potholes, bumps, any tiny-large bump, but if I pres the brake any it won't do it, if I drive and lightly hold the brake while going over the same objects it doesn't do it, any suggestions as to what to check??
2. Tonight while driving around (maybe 4 miles) to try and resolve the question above my check engine light came on while doing roughly 40kph (20mph), so after I see this I go for home (about 3 blocks), on the way home the light goes out. After I turn into my driveway my truck studders at about 500RPM (normal idle is 600RPM), and after I pull into my garage and idle there for about 5 seconds the truck shudders at all RPM I tried (500-2200RPM).
!!After I turn my truck off and try to start it again I notice the fuel pump make a higher-pitch whine than usual, my truck is really low on gas, could this affect it to the point it makes the fuel pump sound different, truck shudder and check engine light come on? !!
