So lately ive been using my truck as a big boom box for work. Ive noticed when leaving it on run (engine off) to listen to the radio for maybe 45 minutes and hour when i start it it normally takes an extra chug or two to get going. this gets more noticible sometimes but is never too bad, at the worst ill stop turning the key and it wont be started but will crank right up on a second try.
Yesterday it was sitting maybe two and a half hours. When i started it was idling at three or four hundred rpm. Smoking and smelling rich. I drove it a little, would move but when i floored it the engine would die, but start back up as soon as i unfloored it. i let it sit and idle for a few minutes, didnt seem to be getting much better (sometimes my truck acts up and just needs to idle for a couple minutes) then i restarted it after 5 minutes and it ran just fine.
Wierd. Im more interested in the first issue. Is the fuel system keeping pressure which is building up somewhere? It really doesnt seem to be my battery being lower causing it?
i guess i should just start leaving my keys on accessory....
my truck had a nasty idle though. sounded like a Harley vtwin
