Re: BROUGHT HOME A 96 EXCAB AUTO RAN GREAT, WAS IDLING AND DIED.
Check that fuse again. I imagine it was the #22 fuse under the hood huh? It controls the PCM
and fuel bowl heater. When that heater wire decides it's time it will continuously blow that fuse. If you put in another and it does the same just pull the fuel filter, unplug the little wire inside the bowl on the driver's side, close bowl, new fuse, crank truck, never look back. If that's it anyways. It's a cheap try. Good luck.
