Hi there, is the check engine light on when this is happening?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
no warning lights on
Expert:  Mike V. replied 2 years ago.
Ok, this usually indicates a possible vacuum leak. With the truck running, spray some carb cleaner along the intake manifold. If the idle speed increases or smooths out, then you have a vacuum leak. This can happen and never set a check engine light. You may also have a fuel pressure issue, but I think we need to start by checking for a vacuum leak.Please try this and let me know.Thanks.What happens next:Just Answer will now charge you for the full amount of your question.My goal is to provide you with 5-star service.
