Hello Pete, it all started with check engine light and the truck shaking 'sputtering" I will say and cant remember the code but we replaced the Solenoid Valve, that "sputter" stopped but there was another code P0305 #5 cylinder misfire, we then replaced the coils, spark plugs and the manifold gasket, while doing that because the throttle was to be move to get into the back, we cleaned while already out, replaced everything, but nothing change is like there is not enough air flowing and so if you run the truck 25 or higher it will be fine, is when is still or driving it on the street that you can feel like it will shut off, and while is still you can hear the airflow gets low and then it will accelerate or flow more gas...sorry if my explanation is confusing...

Is the same code still coming up or have you had the fault codes re checked at all since these repairs were done?

O.k.,this code and running issue can occur with a vacuum leak from the intake gaskets leaking if they were not sealed properly or throttle body was not sealed this will cause this fault here.The other component can be the engine computer at fault but since the intake gaskets were replaced I suspect something wasnt sealed properly causing this issue like the intake gaskets themselves.Here is the diagnostic procedure to this here that has to be followed to then locate and repair this fault.
