I need to do some reading before I start a new thread, so I figured I'd just dump this here for now...
I've been out of the country on vacation for the last week and a half, so the trucks been pahhked in the yahd. I left it with about a quarter tank of fuel in it...
Upon return, I fired it up and all was happy. Made a 4 minute drive for a coffee, few quick on/off - 5 mile drives around town. Still all good. Took it though the touch less cahh wash, and to the inlaws house about 16 miles away. Still plenty of fuel in it, 67 miles to empty on the meter in the dash.
After Leaving the inlaws house, truck made it about a mile down the road (35 mph zone - so normal driving conditions) then the traction control light started blinking at me and the engine virtually took the throttle control away from me. It downshifted and just held steady at 25mph with the light blinking at me. No odd sounds, no jerking, truck felt fine... Luckily there was a gas station about a mile away, so I pulled in and shut her down. Filled it with super, (only took 25 gallons to fill, and I have the 38 gallon tank) and fired back up. No light anymore, and the truck is running fine... Took it another 15 miles back home and it's all good....
Any ideas? Crap in the gas that had been sitting for a week? Water? I'm new to the Yotas so I don't know how the truck reacts to certain conditions but I found it perplexing, since it's only got 1,400 miles on it!!
