alight i just got home from the local mud bog today and some bad things happend. when i first got there for some realized that my running lights and dash lights wouldnt work. but my headlights would turn on. dont know where to start on that im horrible at electrical and wiring. second after the first time i went out my engine started stalling and running like crap. i had to turn the idle screw all the way in for it to stay running. it almost sounds like a carborated motor with a kinda lumpy cam in it but its a stock efi 302. i think it might be a leak from the egr cause there is a loud exhaust leak from the engine area. and lastly i slipped a bead on my front passenger side and had a not really slow but not really fast leak. the only reason i noticed it was because of a loud grinding i heard from the front end. it was kinda like the sound if your dust sheild was rubbing on the rotor but a lot louder. i checked the u-joints in the drveshaft and in the knuckles but no slop. could it be the wheel bearings or the axle bearings? im not too sure.

sorry for the long post and im pretty good at diagnosing but these have got me kinda stumped:whiteflag

Running like crap, Hmmmm. I'm thinking water in the dizzy or maybe the plug wires need some attention. Lights, have you checked the fuses?

IIRC the tail/running lights are on a seperate fuse from the headlights.
