If you just changed the oil, and the level is good, it could be your thermostat. My truck runs much stronger when it's on the cool side than when it does when it's really warm. I'd bet your thermostat is getting a little long in the tooth, and is in need of a change out.

Okay, I looked up your code, and this is the description I got:

P0603/ PCED/ KAM memory loss/ No historical faults output durring a KOEO test/ Open PCM pin, Disconnected B+, Faulty PCM.

Seems that your issue is with the PCM. (Powertrain Control Moduel)

Hope this helps.
