    Just spray some degreaser on it and spray it. Don't have the motor running or it will suck up water and hydro lock your engine.

    And don't spray hard on your fuse boxes. Be easy around that and wiring plugs!

    thanks! that thread helped a lot. just got back from napa, i went with gunk engine degreaser and a bottle of simple green and a few brushes for the hard to reach places.

    God Bless this forum!

    Check your brake light switch.
    The floor mat recall patched the software so the ECU shuts the engine down to idle if the brake is applied while the throttle is over 25%.

    May or may not be what happened, but it seems too new of a truck to have the clutch take a dump unless you are really hard on it.

    No, but if the switch is misadjusted, it can trigger the brake light, which is the only way the ECU knows the brake is applied.

    Had more than a few guys complain their cruise cuts out and it turned out to be a bad or misadjusted switch.


    But in his case, it doesn't sound like it because the reflash should cut the engine to idle, not to 2000. It sounds like it simply stalled out and the trans was slipping the TC.
    If the trans was slipping internally (the clutch packs) it should throw a CEL with an input/output speed mismatch code.
    If his tires are oversized, it might be time for a regear, or use of 4lo.

    After that I rolled down the hill and I tried to throw it into 4lo but my truck threw the a/t temp high ligh and 4lo was just beeping and not engaging. So I moved on to the next bypass and it was fine. This was the second time it has happened to me. The first time I just thought the hill was too steep. Looks like ill have to pay the stealership a visit

    That's what I thought, but wouldn't I just dig in like I did in every other hill that's been too steep?

    AT Temp? Ya... the TC was stalled out.
    Get the fluid changed ASAP.
