Hi. Get us the code and we can help dig in further. Lots of codes out there...so having it will help to narrow things down.

I'm not sure the autozone code readers can pull all the codes our trucks throw.

its the famous p0299 code steeler dealer cant get it in for 2 weeks , yeah right oh well
What I'm tting to say is, that code normally doesn't throw a light. I think you have something else going on that the cheap code reader is not pulling.

You may want to tighten that clamp, that wil cause the p0299, and loss of boost. If you have a warranty, let the dealer, check it out.
