05 acting kinda weird
Let me start this off by apologizing for length of this story. My truck isn't having problems, drives just fine, but has some weird things happening that I can't determine if they are a problem or not. Any help is appreciated!
It started last weekend when I took a last minute trip to MOAB. I live in Denver CO so we had about a 6 hour drive. Checked all my fluids, fueled up, and took off.
Had absolutely ZERO issues on the way there. My truck did great for our first road trip together and I was stoked. (Broke 120k while driving there)
But then the way home was different. Made it all the to vail with no issues, but then I noticed my truck was having a hard time with climbing the hills. Checked all my gauges, everything was good, so I didn't think twice.
Then when I punched the gas I started hearing a sound of air coming from the hood, hard to explain but it sounded like it was pulling air harder than it should be.
Then randomly my dash gave me a warning to "check engine temp" but my gauge was still reading normal. So I hit the reset button to see what would happen, then all of the sudden my gauge flew up to the hot side.
I immediately took the next exit to park the truck and check it out. Turns out I was low on coolant, so I grabbed a couple cold water bottles and filled it up.
I was able to make it home without any of this happening again. It was a one time thing.
However ever since then my batteryihjt on the dash has been trying to flicker at me, like it has a bad connection. So I had both batteries and alternator checked, everything passed.
Then one day my radio and dash lost power on me 3 separate times, but truck still ran.
So I went to have my alternator checked again, and it still passed. I cleaned up all the battery connections and so far I haven't had that problem again.
However yesterday as I pulled into a parking lot I heard my truck kinda making a lope sound. I don't have a lope tune so I was concerned. Got out and sat by my tailpipe for a bit. Every so often it was have a miss. Not a hard miss, just barely enough for me to notice.
Which brings me here. Can anybody tell me if all of the issues are connected? I can't tell if these are little issues I can take care of one at a time, or if my truck is about to fall apart.
ANY ADVICE IS APPRECIATED.
