Surging in Reverse
Whenever I put my truck into reverse it surges and the check engine light will
come on then go off. I've had it in 3 times for repair and the mechanic states
he doesn't know what is wrong with it. It is intermittent, but is starting to
become more regular. As long as I'm in drive the only issue is when I start out
there is a slight shudder or surge and then nothing past 10-15mph. Is there
anyone else having this issue? I don't have a recall on my truck.
Probably a transmission issue, like the reverse solenoid or clutch, or a vacuum leak, and the CEL is telling you about the problem. go to a car parts store and have codes read, probably free Then you'll have a better idea of where to look.
