weird, but what code(s) ? You can say it slips in top gear? You think it has misfire ? But whats the plug story ? What's the fuel pressure ? the mileage, the plan for maintenance? are parts overdue ? You can check that stuff easy at the part store, right ? They have some A/Cdelco parts available.


Some TR sensor issues can produce some of this but you first have to do preliminary inspections and code scan. They used to call that an mlp sensor but i think it is now TR sensor.( a guess)
