Question Discovered a problem!

Well I actually had 2 problems. When I am at 65mph cruising on the highway, every time I lightly tap the brake, it jerks violenty. Second when I am just driving around I hear like a flute sound coming from the turbo area.

The "flute" noise you're hearing is probably an exhaust leak, usually in one of the flex joints in the y-pipe that feeds the hot side of the turbo. Look for exhaust marks against the firewall or back of the motor, or have someone give it a little fuel and see if you have exhaust smoke under the hood.

there was a thread on thedieselstop where the guy was asking why it felt like his truck was jerking when he would turn his cruise off via brake or the button and eric posted in the thread describing why it did it. I remember cuz I posted in the thread and was experiencing the same thing.

now that i think of it, when i went home on vacation, i had the street tune on and when i would hit coast on the cruise control, it would act weird. kinda jerk a little, but only with the cruise put into coast mode and it would only happen when the button was first pushed. no issues now so i am not worried about it.
