Customer Question

My 2005 sierra intermitently goes into limp mode. Changed the mass flow sensor and air filter, thought it was fixed, didn't happen for a week of regular driving.
Shut the truck off for 5 minutes and it is corrected back to regular mode.
Happened today at 70 mph.

Hello, my name is***** you for the question. Can you tell me what size engine that you have and if the check engine light is coming on?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It's 6.0 and yes the engine light is on

Thank you. Typically on this engine this is caused by either a failure in the throttle body or in the accelerator position sensor assembly. I would start by cleaning out the throttle body. Excessive build up will cause this. If it returns I would have the computer scanned for codes. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. If you can bring me the codes that will help.
