    i wonder this becuase it didnt do it to this extreme untill i left a gas station on the way home from some 4 wheeling. in a nut shell..my RPMs seem to high for the speed im going...my truck usually doesnt go over 2 grand unless i step on it a little or am offroading..and in overdrive its reallly low maybe like 1500 at 65 or something like that..but when i give it gas it totally dies then picks back up and does it over and over like its surging..did it the whole way home..and i have a great loss of power/pep. i havnt had a chance to look at it yet..maybe somethings misfireing..just wondering if any ones got any hints i could look for when i check it out. i thoght maybe the carb needed cleaning but i dont think that would get that bad that quick..
