Turbo re-learn, Then ran like crap

Hey,
So, I did the turbo relearn, follow the steps to a "T" took it out for the drive portion of it, some in town buzzing around and then I hopped on the interstate to bring it up to 60 for a mile or two. Problem was once I got it up to speed, it started missing, loss of power, for about a half mile, then seemed to run fine again.? Never had any issues with that before, so what would cause that to happen?

Turbo wouldnt have anything to do with the engine missing. Loss of power and missing is usually caused by some kinda fault in the HPO system. Give somemore details... Truck info, work that had been done, why the relearn was performed to begin with. Any codes?

Nothing done to the truck all stock. it's an 03. It has never missed a beat before? Potential water in fuel?

I might also note that the fuel level was slightly less than 1/4 tank.

That might be your answer. Get some gauges on that thing and dont run it below 1/4 tank. When was the last fuel filter change? And whose filters are they?

You probably need to drop your tank, fix the pickup foot in the tank. Very common to break and suck air.

I just picked up the truck, so I'm not really sure when the FF's were replaced last. I intend on replacing them, but we just got 10" of snow and don't feel like laying in it to replace them yet. I've honestly only put one tank of fuel in it since having it about 300 miles of driving. I intend on replacing all the fluids/filters in the next couple of weeks. Just thought it was strange it did this right after the "re-learn" and wondered what the cause may be or if it was common for this to happen?

Also, I have an Edge Insight ordered and in transit, so I'd guess that will give me a little more insight as to if there are bigger problems once I figure out how to use tha damn thing ha ha.

Yeah, I was down there about a month ago to do some golfing, you got it good down there in the winter! Our snow will be turning into a flood in the next few weeks or so I'm sure....Got to love it here in North Dakota!
