engine has started to sputter Sign In

I bought this Chevy c3500 tool truck back in December. I replaced all the filters the plugs a wires and of course the oil. In the last week I've noticed an increased sluggishness and there is what feels like a miss when I'm sitting still. The only issue I've had with her is that she doesn't like to start right away if I've driven for a while. The thermo doesn't go above 212. I'm thinking ignition coil, and if so will someone that knows what they're doing have to set the timing? I don't have any clue about setting timing. Any info is appreciated.

How about some info on the truck? Year? engine size?

Have you scanned for codes yet? That should be your first step.
