Check engine light comes on and all goes to hell! Please help!
Ok, here is my problem. Driving like normal, the truck is running just fine. Out of nowhere the check engine light pops on (kinda irrelevant, I know) and the rpm's drop to seemingly zero. The truck coughs and sputters and then the rpm's come back to normal. This is happening repeatedly until I pull over and turn the truck off. Restart the truck and it runs just like normal until it happens again. The problem started last Friday and has done it (3) times so far. It also stalled for no apparent reason on Saturday. I have no idea what could be causing this and wanted some advice before I take it to the shop.
Truck specs: 2000 7.3l with 157k miles, stock except for intake, Turbo-back 4" and a TS performance tuner.
Please let me know if this sounds at all familiar, I know its vague, but thats really the only signs of the issue.
