Please do the following, so we can give you a better response:
- give as much info about the problem as possible and the necessary info of your vehicle, including engine size, auto or manual transmission, 2WD or 4WD, in what conditions the problem occurs i.e.: only at operating temp, only when cold, all the times, when I accelerate/ decelerate, etc...
- post a follow-up, tell us what happened, what fixed it, share your experience with your local repair shop so everyone can learn from it.
Thank you and drive safely in a safe, well maintained vehicle!
Try this: Get in your truck, turn the key to ON position (do not start the engine!) and within 3 seconds push the accelerator pedal to the floor and let it back. Turn the key off, than start it and see if it's working good now.
