    Please fill out the following to ask a question.

    Truck operates well from 1st to 2nd but from 2nd to 3rd it starts revving like tapping on the pedal and it wont switch gears and change to drive unless i ease back on the pedal. On highway, it is good in drive but when trying to get it to kick in to overdrive, it does that again until i let up on the pedal. Or if im trying to get it into overdrive and push the pedal it just chokes out and the truck will begin slowing quickly. I let up on the pedal and it changes to overdrive. Once im going up a hill, the truck will try to gear down and just chokes out again. I will check the fuel and air filters but im also thinking vacuum. Thanks
