    ok so when i put my gas pedal to the floor getting on the highway or going around someone to pass them my trucks doesnt accelerate. It feels like i just let go of the gas but i have it to the floor but then when i let go and put it to the floor again it goes. has anyone else had this problem or know what it may be. My check engine light is not on so idk whats going on. :thumbdown:

    How many miles on your truck? Maybe fuel filter is getting plugged? Does it do it all the time or only once in a while?

    Mine was doing this a while back. Turns out it was a vacuum line. Check all your vacuum hoses and make sure theyre connected and arent cracked anywhere.

    No prob. Just one of the things it could be. I forget which one of the lines mine was but I think it got pulled out when I replaced my supercharger. Hopefully thats all your problem is.

    yeah just relized that, My mom asked me if Justin replyed to me about my problem. haha. i checked all my lines and didnt see anything. so not real sure it seems to only do it in 5th or 6th gear just bogs out. Maybe i got a bad tank of gas when i filled up last.

    Lol yeah she asked me about it at work the other day. Hvae you checked your maf sensor? It could be dirty too. Just another one of those things it might be. Mine was dirty as hell after like 32,000 miles, so if yours has never been cleaned, def check that too.

    You too?

    My truck went through a period of about a week...oh maybe 15k miles Ago it would do that. I would lose nearly all throttle control. It would go into high idle and have limited throttle control.

    I had to cycle the key to reset it. Did it twice in one week and hasn't since then...been about 6 months

    My truck had about 135k on the odo when it did that. Maybe it's a high mileage issue...:dontknow:

    I don't trust that damn drive by wire bull shit....:rolleyez:

    clean MAF, Tune up, use good gas. Since there is no CEL it's not an issue like something is broken.

    I used to run gas from 7-11 and every time it would throw lean codes and run like shit.
