TIM :

hello, is truck running ok -- or does the light just come on in the morning when cold?

Customer :

it start running bad and then when the light goes out it runs ok

TIM :

this light is for the throttlebody-- on this particular year -- I have seen this light come on for two different reasons-- one would be the throttlebody and the second would be valve springs-- does the check engine light come on when throttle light comes on

TIM :

and does it do this only when cold?

TIM :

we have also seen quite a few of these do this when MAP sensor fails -- It would be a great help to have the computer scanned(engine controller) and see if we are getting any fault codes

TIM :
Vehicle Issue Loss of power while driving, MIL on. ETC light , ETC light comes on, : PCODES : P2172 : HIGH AIR FLOW/VACUUM LEAK DETECTED (INSTANTANEOUS ACCUMULATION) : PCODES : P2106 : THROTTLE ACTUATOR CONTROL SYSTEM - FORCED LIMITED POWER : PCODES : P2108 : ELECTRONIC THROTTLE CONTROL MODULE PERFORMANCE
TIM :
Recommendation Using the scantool Check the Barometric pressure reading when concern occurs, If it does not match other vehicles in your shop then replace MAP sensor
