after 1st occurrence, had regular service and replaced air filter. Problem recurred next time truck was in slow/standstill city traffic. To mechanic again,diagnostic computer identified a problem with speed sensor in the transmission. Sensor replaced and trans fluid changed. (approx. $400)and problem has resurfaced in less than 1 week - all occurrences in slow/standstill city traffic (approx. 150,000 kms)

    Try the idle air control valve and a throttle body service

    Thank you Girliy2000 - that sounds logical, wouldn't you expect a long time pro mechanic to have the same suspicion?

    Actually #-1 post a pretty good answer! Light on? If so another scan test is needed. Post the code number(s) and we will try to help. Autzone will scan it for free.
