    Hey onelifeoneride, sorry to get a bit off topic here, but we need pictures of the custom flame paint job. As another speedway blue owner I would love to see what you have done...

    Yeah dude, we have no idea what if could be. Take the bitch in to the stealer and have him check it out. If you're lucky maybe he'll give you a reach around.

    Where do you live? I have an OBDII scanner. I can hook it up and tell you what the issue is. I'm in SW Ohio.

    Or you can take it to AutoZone. They'll do it for free.

    I used to have a Honda Civic that had the engine light come on every now and then. Dealer could not tell me what the problem was. So I would unhook the battery and leave it for 30 minutes and re-hook it back up. Engine check light would go away. Kind of like a reboot. I used to do this because the warrenty ran out and it was an easy try/fix.

    If you have warrenty go to the dealer, or get a code scanner and this will hopefully help. With out the code it could be anything. Good luck. Sucks to have a sick truck.
