SOURCE: truck surges

if this has the 2.9 six engine yep I've seen this before
on the front of engine right behind the pipe that carries air from filter is the throttle blade on the left side of it is a black sensor with two phillips screws on it This is the throttle posisition sensor ford has a service bullitin on this It seems fine dirt in air follows the throttle shaft and gets caught inside this sensor
solution replace sensor and use throttle/carb cleaner to clean shaft from inside you'll see black dusty powder on it
Runs great for 15 minutes because ecm runs open loop(epa stuff) till then when it tries to go closed loop the sensor's input is not there so it goes crazy
any one with two hands and a screw driver can fix this

Check engine light flashing in 2006 chevy hhr

If it is running rough & no check engine light on then the first thing I would to is tune it up. If you have a check engine light then pay someone to diagnosis it & go from there. Usually when the light comes on there is a more promenient issue; that is WHY the light continues to flash.

I have a 2005 maxima the check engine light is on but after u get about a mile down road it starts flashing any idea why??

There is something that needs to be checked. Go to an Auto Parts store and they can usually read them for you. Or you can go to a service station and they can read it for you and fix it.

Check engine light comes on and gas gauge goes from it current position to empty going down the road

It sounds like you have a bad wire or connection. Did you have the fuel pump changed? The mech may have been a little sloppy. I'd bet the problem is near the top of the gas tank where the pump is.
