Issue with my stroke.

So I have had my truck for 4 weeks and I have 2 issues that have popped up....

I recently flushed the coolant and this may just be slight spillage from the bottle when filling up the coolant overflow (Degas bottle?) but there is white residue around the cap and coming out... I hope its just from when it was getting flushed but we will see.

Next up while driving the truck today it felt like it was bucking like it would lose power. and I had black smoke come from the pipe and then I just romped on the loud pedal alot and it cleared up and the power came back. what the cause that was I have no clue. (bad fuel, filters?)

now if it is puking what should I look for?

as for the bucking and loss of power... that I have no clue..........

If I remember, you are still under warenty. Take it to the dealer and have some tests run. If they can't find anything worng no money out of you pocket.

Being an 03 he may or may not be in warranty. When you filled your coolant did you fill to the max or min mark on the degas bottle? The min mark is what you should be filling to.

Your smoking/loss of power might just be a clogged EGR valve.
