if you are going to pull the plugs, why not replace them?

some people replace Distributor caps. depends on how its running. I'd only change the plugs if they were looking bad. You may also want to check/change your fuel filter and run a bottle of injector cleaner with some high octane gas.

the truck hasnt really been running to good but i think that has a lot to do with my fan. my friend looked at it and just laughed and then asked how long ive been driving it that way, he says it wasn't looking good. So im trying to get that done but yeah good advise keep it coming!

My guess is the clutch is frozen or maybe a broken blade?
