sudden loss of power

ill go out and start my truck let her warm up for a little bit before driving. as im heading down the road maybe a mile or so all of a sudden the engine kinda dies, and the rpms will kick down, but only for a split second then it will kick back in and i wont have any problems at all. sometime it kinda jerks a little bit as well. the other morning before leaving work i had it warming up and the check engine light was on but after i got it home i shut it off and it hasnt been back on. i wish i had some more info but thats all i have for now. any one have any thoughts on where to start looking...? the only mods i have are 10k and DIY intake

thank you!!!

I'd take the 10k out and clean the ICP sensor. You more then likely have gotten oil in that sensor.

If that doesn't work you may want to view this post I just made
Under Valve Cover Harness

PS get your codes pulled.

It could be a number of things. Like marty said check codes. If its cold up there in ohio you could have the ebpv wanting to close on you.
