while in my ranger it would do that and it was because of a cracked sparkplug. so there is probaly still something wrong with the engine. i would have it looked at if it continues to do that. i will say again never use cruise while pulling and no OD. by the way did your rpms jump going up the hills

i'm not sure but my guess is that the tranny down shifted going up the hill and the truck overboosted causing the ses light to come on. how fast were you towing and how heavy was the load?
