Random idle hesitation
Ok guys, after 3 years, Im having my first mechanical problem and need some guidance. My truck has developed a hesitation at idle that acts just like a misfire on a gas engine. It did it twice yesterday (that I noticed) but then today, it has been doing it about every 10-15 seconds. It's almost like the engine shuts off for a fraction of a second. It's enough of an interruption to the idle that the truck shakes when it does it. I will say that tge truck is bone stock other than studs that were in it when I bought it. I also bought fuel (at my normal station) on Friday and it probably had 50-75 miles on that tank the first time I noticed it. The truck has 116,xxx miles on it and it's about 800 miles from a scheduled fuel filter and water separator change.
If anyone has any ideas of what it may be, the help would be greatly appreciated. I'm hoping it's just water in the fuel( we did get a small flood the night before I filled up). And by the way, there is no check engine light or anything else out of tge ordinary. Thanks!!
