Help!

Experienced something very weird today, I just happen to be going about 45 and took it out of od, slowed down to about 15 and engaged it again and all off a sudden the check engine came on and the truck sounded like it was running on 2 cylinders, I put it in park and it eventually evened back out, I did it 2 consecuative Times. anyone know what could have caused this??

Was it shifting weird/hard too? Check ICP sensor for oil in the connector and let us know what you find.

Is the CE light still on? If so, get the code(s).

What brand of CPS is now installed?

No check engine light shuts right off after the engine evens out, and I bought it from the dealership

Code(s) _might_ still be stored. If I had to guess, I'd say it's UVCHs / wiring to the injectors. Sometimes one whole side will shut down if anything hinky is detected in any cylinder on that side.
