Its not that this has me stumped. but its getting a bit annoying.
On a warm start, say i come home and run inside for 10 - 15 minutes to about an hour. then come out side and fire the truck up. It'll rev up high real rough, then die. it'll do this every start until i give it a bit of Gas and it will even out after a minute or so.
What i've done so far:
This started about a week or two after i put my lower intake back together. everything in that department was cleaned during the processes. IAC, Upper Intake, Throttle Body, almost all vacuum lines replaced.
The only thing i didn't really clean up was my MAF, i was going to clean that up today or tomorrow and see where that takes me. but from what i've experienced, a MAF hasn't caused this kind of problem before.
Does anyone have any idea where else i could check?
Problem number 2.
I feel like my Rear axle is making noise. its hard to describe and really hard to check because the truck has to be rolling. Its not making a super loud grinding or anything, but it sounds like something is dragging. Its hard to explain and when i try and video it, you don't hear it.
I bet there is some water in there, but i haven't got around to checking it.
so, what are the symptoms of a rear end about to explode, and should i do something about it?
I'm not a transmission guy. But i know that when your A4LD is starting to clunk into every gear, its getting bad. How much longer do you think this thing is going to last me?
