Truck will slightly surge forward when my foot is on the brake as I come to a stop or as I release the brake before hitting the accelerator. Symptom occurs irradically and sometimes the surge is more pronounced than others. This is not an engine surge it is a vehichle surge. No codes are present. No mechanic thus far can offer a solution.
