Truck was running fine but then started missing really bad. Numerous Error codes. Would Mech failure cause this?
Truck was running fine. Then all of a sudden, it started shaking and vibrating. Pulled into a parking lot. There was no smoke, the engine was not hot, nothing noticeable except the shaking when running the engine. Like it jumped timing or similar. Had it towed to the shop where my mechanic says I have numerous error codes. Then says I have a major mechanical failure and will need to replace the engine. Asked if I ran it hot. As I stated, it did not get hot or smoke or make any funny noises prior to it starting to miss real bad. I was sure it was something electrical. There was no grinding noise or anything. Does this sound like I need to replace the engine or should I get a second opinion?
