Not sure what the problem is. Truck runs great when idling, but as soon as you start to accelerate especially on interstate it misses like crazy, almost like water in the gas, but that is not the problem. I am not sure what could be causing this hooked up the code reader not sure, but it said one of the 02 sensors, and camshaft sensor and knock sensor. Not sure if any of these are the problem. Help please.
Do you

Hi JASON,

If you decide you would like to conduct the scan yourself here is a link to an article that features written step by step instructions and pictures explaining how to do the scan yourself, also I have included a link to our YouTube channel with a how to video on code scanning.

This is applicable even if your check engine light is not on.

Most scanners are inexpensive to purchase, you can purchase one online from sites like Amazon.com
