Since the check engine light came on there's a trouble code stored in the computer. Visit your local auto parts store and ask them to scan the computer. Most stores will do it for free. Even though the light went out the code(s) are still in there. Your looking for four a digit number on each code with the letter "P" as the prefix. As an example: P0301. Off the top of my head I'm thinking throttle position sensor or, if equipped, accelerator position sensor. Please post the code(s) and we can help further. On a side note, keep the print out of the scan showing the trouble code(s). This will prove that the truck malfunctioned and that your Son wasn't being careless. HTH. -Jim
