I was driving on the highway. Next thing I know, the car is bucking like it was choking on something. After that incident, the truck had to be in drive 2 and won't go faster than 45 without the rpm racing up to 4,000rpm. I checked the egr valve, I changed out transmission fluid ,did oil change. Talking about timing. Other than the book,I'm not doing much. There's not much in the wave.
High idle, sputtering. Fixed high idle and check engine light.
