OK, Is the check engine light on by chance? Just so we don't overlook the obvious. You have replaced the air filter in this truck in the last 30K miles correct?

Expert:  Edward replied 6 years ago.
OK, If the check engine light is on, It really could be 1 of 100 things. I'll opt out as there isn't a way for me to tell you whats wrong with it unless we had the code thats stored. Hopefully another expert will assist you shortly. Thanks,
