Also unplug the coolant temp sensor, this will richen the fuel mix and may let it run longer.
We tried unplugging the coolant temp sensor and it did not help. I will try the timing light trick. I wanted to check the timing anyways. Thanks for the idea...

The funny thing is I at first thought it might be an injector or fuel problem. But my father in-law and his friend who owns the truck wanted me to try changing the other stuff first. The owner originally took it to a shop in Grand Haven and the said it was the oxygen sensor. He had them change it but that did not help either.
