    hey T.W.,

    This is my first post and hope you guys can help me out. Well, I have an 08 rugged trail, access cab automatic with less than 3k miles on it. I just installed the AFE stage 2 CAI and one day (like a week later) i had the urge to check under the hood ( which was a good idea) oil was splattered on my hood and on the fender well. Look like it just happened that night. I was ooooohh sssssh!!!T, Usually on new cars the oil cap stays on the car, which i've failed to check tightness on everything under the hood. I've checked the oil level was, it was fine. I bought a aftermarket oil cap from the dealer and was tight as can be. I've read another thread on something similar to change the oil, and oil filter, I did that with mobil one, and seems to run o.k. But my question is, when i'm driving around 40-50 mph, is it normal for the truck to bog down going on a slight incline? i have to step on it a lil for it to change into a lower gear. seems like its in to high of a gear. I hope its not a transmission problem or is it the intake? :confused: Need help!!

    Check oil level and cap, make sure all oil is cleaned up too it will affect adhesives and coatings on some materials under the hood.:alien:

    Bogging down on incline might be air issue, might want to re-install back to riginal setup to verify:cool:
