Re: hesitant and reving engine

It doesn't happen all the time but enough to warrant a concern. hope someone has the answer to this problem. did a voltage reading and it was 14+ volts while running. thanks
bring the maintanc up.......clean TB, IACV, MAF.......change fuel filter, air filter, PCV valve, etc....look for vacuum leaks........you should add info about your truck to your signature
