Well, my TB cleanout was not the issue. Yesterday the truck was stumbling like mad. It would sit around 500-600 rpms and oscillate; nearly stalling. This was after it warmed up! It took me a while to get it running to get to that point. It finally popped a code while oscillating. I haven't had it read yet, but intend to. I had a buddy come by and brainstorm. We noted that last night, while it was stumbling, the gas tank was under 1/4 tank. Wife took it out last night and filled it up. This morning the truck is running fine. Not the slightest idle problem. He's thinking that perhaps I have a bad fuel pump that's not sealed so when the fuel level goes down enough, it starts sucking air and causing the issue noted. Also wondering if the check engine light came on as a result of the stumble and the alernator dropping to a low output voltage (lights were dimming during stumbles). Guess I won't know that until I have the code read. Anyone else have any ideas?

Next issue: Heated seats. Driver's side is not working, passenger side works fine. Light on the switch comes on when activated. Assume that rules out a bad fuse, but can anyone tell me if both heated seats run off the same fuse in the fuse panel? My owner's manual has vanished. Are there any subsequent fuses, maybe under the seat that might have tripped? Scratching my head on this one too....sigh.

I'd decipher that code and go from there. Your fuel pump theory sounds plausible, though.

The seat heater most likely run from the same fuse, a power check will confirm if they are getting current.

Would you believe that I left church, started the truck, and the fault cleared?!?!
