Dealer.....Computer.......Sorry.

hmmmm could be any number of concerns too numerous to guess at....much as I could list a few prime examples...best to get your codes read...or get them yourself from a handheld seventeen dollar model~

then tell us what they were and "reset the codes"....if they come back we will know definitively what to do something with~

    Once in a while from a stop there is a short period before the truck starts to move after acceleration and there is quite a lurch and a thump when it does. This is an intermittent problem.
