It could be? Did you notice any other symptoms? Any lights on or gauges reading differently than normal?

 

Thanks,

No I did not besides alittle sluggish when accelerating. No lights came on.

If sluggish and getting a noise then it probable is the fuel. Put some octane booster in the tank to help eliminate the poor fuel quality. Other than that you will need to run out the bad fuel to make it go away. I recently had the same problem and had to run a couple tanks of fuel through my truck before it started running correctly.

 

Thanks,
