Exhaust valve sticking causing truck to die?
Since it has got cold the trucks done this to me about 3-4 times so far. If I don't plug the truck in and start it, it will idle weird like it normall would when the valve is working like it should. You know your normal quieter idle and some loss of power. The problem....
I go to take off and I will get rollin about 20-25 mph. All of a sudden the truck will jerk, start loosing power and eventually kill itself.
I have found the solution is to pull the battery cables for about 10 seconds, clear all my codes and try to fire it back up. It will take about 15 cranks usually and it will try to get itself going. It will idle weird then slowly catch itself back up.
The tach moves when this is going on....
I want to figure this out before throwing money at it, I'm thinking CPS sensor?
