problem with my 4.2

my truck has started acting up. at random the odometer cuts on and off, the windshield wipers randomly cut on and off,the gas mileage has gone to crap and once at operating temp will randomly not start but will turn over. it acts like it isnt getting a spark. i think it is either the computer going or a wiring short. have any of you heard of these problems or have any input?

yo- to all you newbs, there is an edit thing on you post for like 10 minutes after posting, you can use this to edit your post you just made if you want to instead of posting like 3 times within 10 minutes.

Thanks, just trying to make reading/sorting through threads easier...

You seriously need to buy Garretts kit...it's probably the nicest bug-free kit out there....pretty much brand new with no problems at all for a fraction of the normal cost.

Thanks for the plug Joe...I even sent it in to Vortech to be rebuilt so the buyer gets a brand new head unit, 0 miles.

Landon/homer...I believe it is one hour to edit your posts.
