Allrighty well my truck has been acting wierd lately...its been cold so i let my truck warm up for 5-10 minutes...ill drive down the road then come to a stop at a stop sign. When i try to go again my truck does not want to go it sputters and the more i push the gas the lower the rpm's go. So i throw it into neutral rev it a little bit pyt it back in gear and its like nothing was wrong...anybody else had this problem

you did the computer reset?? only other thing i can think of is a possible belt issue...especially if your not getting any codes..... its also possible it needs to warm up more...

Sounds like a MAF issue, but you said you cleaned it...crazy. Hopefully someone with more insight can help out.

dude i know you said you have already done it, but it sound like an air issue.....either the maf is fucking up or something else....i would clean the MAF again very carefull and see if that helps...if not replace the bitch.

i agree. no other ideas what it could b. i would clean both again.fuc'n drive by wire if the shit gets real dirty with no actual cable to pull it open it'll run fuc'd up. my truck was runnin rough and my cel even came on took some advice from brewer and cleaned myTB runnin great now

Its gotta be a MAF issue. As much as you guys praise this CRC MAF cleaner shit i was always told to never EVER touch or spray anything onto the MAF's hotwire in school. That being said your MAF could be fuckinup. Is there a CEL at all? What happens if you let it idle for say an hour?

Try not warming the engine up. Something to consider - if you allow the engine to warm up by idling you now have an engine that is putting out full power to a drivetrain that is still cold. This can't be good for the drivetrain in the long run.

Don't forget to clean the other TBs. They make a difference too with the idle. :D
