    Hey pete, sorry to hear it is going less than awesome. What has Big #1 been doing? I would like to know how they have been attempting to deal with whats up. I have done some business with them, and I was planning to continue to do it, but this might be a deal breaker.

    Default Throttle body issues!

    Sounds to me like you need a throttle body. have you pulled the codes when it is occurring? Hold Mode and set then hit turn signal button as if to turn the signal off. Code will pop on the screen.

    It is a well documented problem both here and everywhere else. I have had four plus at least three software updates related to the same issues.

    Relax they will get it fixed.
