Ok, since the CEL is on, get the truck scanned for the code, this will direct you what the issue is. Do you want a mechanic to look at it or fix yourself? If your self, go to any local auto parts store and have them read the code for you. get the numbers and post them back here and we can help diagnose the problem further.
