hi guys

ok truck is a 94 Dak 3.9

yesterday stopped for smokes when i came out the truck wouldn't start right, it run at about 300-400 rpm's stumbling like hell and if i gave it the gas it would die

waited a few and after 3 tries she fired and ran
but seemed a bit sluggish
till last night.
it got real sluggish then stalled and now wont restart at all, it makes an attempt but thats about it..

truck history i bought it early Feb 2000
one owner with 46,000 on it
now sitting with just under 112,000
other then oil changes every 3,000
tune-ups an tires i have had to do nothing to this lil' Gal and other then 1 blown tire
i have never had a single problem ......

what should i start checking?
would the wire cluster under the hood cause this?
or something else? thanks in advance guys
i'm hoping not to miss more then tomorrow for work

have you checked for fire and/or fuel?try to narrow it down to one or the another this will help to find the problem sooner

check wire cluster under hood like you said,

iat in the back of the tb could make it idle funky,clean with carb cleaner

water in fuel,coil pickup in dist

and the list goes on
