So for the last 3 weeks my shutoff solenoid took a dump on me so I have been shutting down the truck manually at the pump. Last friday I noticed that the truck took a little more cranking to start, but I didn't think anything of it. Today I just shut off and it "partially" shut down with the key and continued to run very poorly. I shut it off at the pump and restarted the truck and it ran the same like it was on 3 cyls. I gave it gas and the throttle response was non-existant but it eventually just caught up with itself and ran like it normally does, never missing a beat. Theres no smoke at all or drveability issues. What gives? Is my solenoid getting partially stuck or something. I did just fuel up, could a batch of bad fuel be the cause?
