today my truck did something very strange. i opened it up at low speed. probably about 15-20 mph and it just cut out on me. the truck didnt completley die or anything it just didnt accelerate. it shot to about 3000 rpm and then the rpms fell off. i had the pedal to the floor. i tried to punch it again and the same thing happened. I removed my programer and tried it again and couldnt get it to do it again which sucks because i cant duplicate the problem for the stealership.
i was thinking transmission failure. only reason i can come up with for it not slipping with the programmer removed is more tq. management. anyone else have this problem? :help:

i set the 91 tune again and can't duplicate the problem. i seem to be getting better mpg's. maybe i was running to lean? i dont know, but i hope it doesnt happen again.

Sounds like it went into limp mode somehow? But that should trigger a CEL or the electronic throttle light to come on.

I don't know... These computers usually pick up everything but there is a thing called the misfire counter, and it could have misfired but not enough to set the light off.

FWIW. I have seen this condition on two other cars. Both related to the MAF.
