I am out of ideas. Need some help. When i drive down the road my truck is ok at first then after about 15 mins it starts cutting out and the check engine light comes on and the pedal quits workin and drops to an idle. but as soon as the check engine light goes off the truck works again for a minute. then back to the same ordeal. ive checked the oil, replaced the throttle pedal assembly, and fuel filter. i was going to get the code pulled but it doent stay on long enought.

it idles great and the connecter is good i checked it out just a little bit ago and even put some electrical grease on it. took it for a drive and the same thing happens. althought it didnt seem as bad as it was before. it still cuts out but it seemed to come back quicker. and the cruise control doesnt cut out at all. im lost!!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif

if the cruise control still works, that would be a sign that it has something to do with the pedal. the cruise control doesnt use the pedal to operate, and therefore you wouldnt see any problems. try setting your cruise control and run for a few minutes, and then hit the go pedal. if it starts acting up once you hit the pedal, then theres your problem.
