When my Truck switches from V8 to V4 I hear a popping noise then as I accelerate I hear a rattling sound till my truck switches back to V8 any help? Sometimes when im sitting at a red light my trucks engine light will come on and then it says traction control disable but when I accelerate it goes off and starts the popping noise when I start to slow down and it switches to V4 any help please?

If the light is coming on, you need to have the computer scanned. Most parts stores will do it for free.

Sorry for such a short response. However, there are so many sensors on these vehicles, it becomes a guessing game without a scanner.
