Good morning we have seen issues with the flex pipe in the exhaust cause issues like this under heavy load . I recommend you have a shop check the flex pipe on the exhaust make sure it’s not starting to break apart. I hope this helps please don’t forget to provide positive feedback for the help provided thank you.
