Low power, cant figure it out
Hey guys, on the way to school today i had an issue, after about 30 mins of driving, assending a decent grade hill truck lost power, big time....was pulling 75 in the fast lane and by the end of it I was the the side of the road trying to keep the truck running, horrible idle and low low power. shut it down, popped hood and fuel pressure looked good, 70psi, started the truck(started hard) and fuel pressure stayed, after idling for a few seconds it smoothed up, so we headed down the road in at attempt to make it to class on time, ran alright for a bit and then started acting up again...we made it and everything was good....on the way home is almost seemed to come out of it and run fine, hasn't caused a problem in probably 25 miles, grabbed a new CPS at napa and will put that in.
NOTE* my check engine light doesnt seem to work, it wont illuminate even at start up, so im not sure if it threw a code(stopped in at VIP and they scanned it and said no codes)
but Im not sure if there scanner was compatible.
