...his truck is on tow truck, chat back later....
Don't any of you have AAA I just extend mine to the 100 mile for things like this.
This going to sound stupid...but does it have gas?
the cat can get clogged and it will kill the truck, my mom had that happen to her 89 350 once.
does that thing have the stupid flat sensor thing on the back of the disributor. Not sure but the B2 would't start when mine went out.
Start checking your spark and fuel, and track it down.
or just leave his truck in a parking lot for the day, and go home and get a trailer
Wish I could be of some help to you guys but computer diagnostics aren't my forte either. Funny thing is I had a similar thing happen to me once on the way home from T-haven where my truck just shut down. The gauges were going crazy just before it happened and it ended up being the alternator so that might be something to check out.
If you guys haven't got a trailer yet the only places I can think of off the top of my head here in the valley are U-haul:thumbdwn: I know, not a very Explorer friendly place. Maybe you could get a truck and one of those car dollies there.
Closest U-haul to you is in Cathedral City on Ramon rd. or there's another one back in Indio on Hwy 111. There might be other rental yards around but you'll have to check out the phone book for them.
Good luck guys
Edit: Just missed your post Tbars4...glad you got a tow.
you can tell what ranchos they are (if they are real ranchos) by the stamping on the shock body. it will say 5123 or what ever, the first number being the series. aka 5123= Rancho 5000. Rancho's website will have the breakdown for each aplication and specs
...cyber, keep us up on the progress...i was also thinking about your flickering brake lites on 86, just wondering if something was getting pinched off when you applied brakes...:scratch:
...and if you wound up with my blue channel locks let me know...
