    so i get in my truck today, just had service about a week ago, and it starts right up but i start driving and it sounds like a 2 stroke motorcycle bogging really badly. I usually drive around in D but it was missing gears and was way to high. It was staying under 2000 RPMs.. i put it into "4" and it went up to about 2000 and a little higher but it wasn't sounding good. any suggestions on the problems?
    i have a K&N intake and thats the only thing i can thing that is causing it. maybe its loose im not sure. Any ideas???

    The check engine light and maintenance light are two different lights.

    When was the last time you changed the spark plugs? Is the check engine light flashing when you drive? Did you put a shit ton of oil on the K&N filter?
