5.9 ltd spit and spudder. help?
This may have been hit on before but I'm new at the forum thing... Ok well at start up she runs awesome but say I run into the store for a few, when I restart it, it will spit and pop through the air intake. It losses all power and won't get out of its own way. The out of the blue... Bam! full power. Like smack you in the head power. If it does it in an intersection I'm afraid of causing an accident. It seems electrical to me but if been fooled before.
Any insight would be appreciated.:confused:

Is it throwing any CEL codes (check engine light)

I'm getting no cel but there are 2 codes stored... P0351, P0740. I do have a msd 6al and a blaster as coil.

With a little research I found the P0351 code is a ignition coil malfunction which will cause a misfire and the P0740 code is torque converter circuit which means it could be shot. Just google the codes and you can find all the info you need.

My scanner told me that too. Iv found some corroded connections in the msd wiring. I think I will soulder them and see if that helps. Not sure how the torque converter circuit plays into this though.
