I notice going down the road the truck will start to surge a litte bit. I can let off the gas and it will correct it self; however, the surging will come back, and it's even more noticeble going up hill.
Do you
have the same problem?

Has the check engine light come on? Have you had the fuel pressure tested? Finally, have you checked for vacuum leaks?

There are a few things that can cause this type of problem. Let me know the answers to the above listed questions, and I'll be better able to help you.

Jason:

Here is a "How To" video and directions for checking fuel pump pressure. You will need a gauge to check it. Many parts stores will lend or rent one to you. If you want to own one, they sell them here on this site. Go to the "Test Equipment Store" to find it. I know it sounds crazy, but with today's cars, it's not a bad idea to have one in your tool box. The older cars with mechanical pumps only needed to pump a certain volume in a specified amount of time. Today's pumps must maintain high levels of pressure. If they don't, all sorts of problems can occur.

If you would like to make a donation, that would be great! However, I'm not sure how it's done. I will send our conversation to my boss.

Let me know what you find, if you have other questions, and thanks for using 2carpros. Com.
