I was hoping this might be it but after thinking about it and driving the truck I am afraid not. I can't get it to happen consistently. If it was a miss adjusted throttle sensor it should happen consistently under the same conditions. I am getting no codes for a trans problem. I know I need to take it to a pro but dangit The (pros) rebuilt this thing. I don't like anybody to work on my cars but me. Maybe I should toss in a manual trans.
