Intermittent more power/cackle -updated
I'm pretty sure this just started 2 days ago when it got cold, but I'm worried it may be related to the TS chip I installed a week ago. Here's what I got:
On cold startup idling in the driveway the idle will randomly bump up for a moment. When it idles up for that moment there is increased noise that sounds like cackling.
Then when I get under way the power will randomly kick in, and with it comes that louder diesel cackle sound. I'll go to accelerate from a stop and it will be down on power then suddenly it wants to run great. It starts cutting in and out noticably.
I thought maybe it was the chip working intermittently (cause thats what it feels like ) so i switched the chip over to the stock setting and it still does it, it's just not as noticable because there isnt as much power to kick in and out I think.
No new coddes are stored in memory (I have a snap on scanner), so should I pull the chip and see if it keeps doing it? Or check something else first?
Thanks for any help.
