Do you have any codes? have you had it scanned?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
I had it scan at GMC dealer. I was told the saner said motor mounts had to be replace. I already had replace one. So I replaced the other one. Check the existing moulin and it look good. I had replace the other one about two months ago. I'am still having problems going between 4 and 8 cjlinder. And the dealer didn't tell what codes came up.

When can I expect an answer!

I am sorry for the delay, I work at the dealership full time as a tech and try to get on here as soon as I can. Take this to any auto parts store and get a free scan. Then write down any codes. Let me know what you come up with. Thanks.

I had another computer scan performed by someone else. Data is showing as PO121.
Throttle/Petal position sensor
ECM code

The most common cause for this code is a faulty throttle body.

But does this cause the problem on my truck to change from 4 to 8 cylinder and run so rough.

It could cause a rough running problem, yes I would start with diagnosing this code first. You could also try cleaning the throttle body and clear the codes.

Will get back with you soon.

Ok thanks.
