It had a slight stumble and when you would be in it hard and let out it would stall out. But for the most part it was drivable. I did some research and figured out how to do the obd I code reading and got a TPS sensor low voltage code. So I put a new TPS on it. At the same time I put some headers on. It is my offroad play truck so I am running them open. Now it is running like crap super rich! To get it started have to give it gas when cranking. And when I do get it started in runs crappy smoking and smelling like gas and spits oil out of the collector on the passenger side header. I replaced the coolant temp sensor TPS and tried a diffrant used IAC and throttle body I had off another truck. Still no luck it runs the same. All the research I have done sounds like only other thing it could be as far as sensors is a MAP sensor. But I dont have a check engine light or any codes showing. So I'm at a loss what to try next.
