When I press on the gas truck runs very sluggish, then will blow out a cloud of smoke and run fine. This only happens at complete stops and the truck runs and idles fine otherwise. Any ideas?
I had the same problem a month or so ago. I pulled the egr valve and was all kinds of ganked up. The valve would not move. I cleaned the hell out of it, put it back in and it ran great for about 10 miles. pulled it again cleaned it and the valve still wouldn't move. so i forced it closed and welded it shut, put it back in, and unplugged the valve and everything has been great since. I have not got a cel at all yet from unplugging it. I have heard that our '04's don't throw a cel like other years. I am saving $$$ to do a full delete but this works for now. hope this helps.
