Hi, if "truck feels like its holding back on highway" is the major problem you are having with this truck as explained in your posted message, i will first of all check the new tires fitted to the truck. It seems not to be the proper size which maybe too big as compared to the former tires of the truck because when you don't use the appropriate tires for cars, this is usually the result.
Try getting the proper size by checking the old tires to get the size and let's see if the problem will persist....

Just returned from a 450 mile round trip switched of engine. but can not re start will bump start straight away and runs fine, key will turn engine over but will not start engine

weak (not dead) battery caused by bad alternator? go to an auto parts store that will give free alternator, battery, & starter tests.
i apologized if i misunderstood bump? for jump. you said will bump (or jump) start right away, then your battery is weak (may be not dead), find out why the battery seems to be weak? also suspect poor main electrical connections (loose or corroded battery terminals & body ground) & failing ignition switch.

What are codes P0133 & P1134, for a 2005 Buick Lacrosse 3.8L V6 with 94,000 miles.

i have replaced an O2 sensor and had similar failure after 1500 miles.
I removed it, chkd it, reinstalled it and it ran fine.
P0133 is related to slow response of O2 sensor. P1134 is mfg specific so google that for ur car.

What service my honda pilot needs at 22500 miles

At 22500 Normal stuff like regular oil chages etc..

At 30,000-ish exchange all fluids.. Radiator, break, power stearing, trani (if auto)

On the trani - I strongly feel that a FULL fluid exchange should be done.. They normally only do a "pan drop" only exchanging about half the fluid or less.. Makes no sense to me.. Pay a little more and exchange ALL the trani fluid..
I have my 10 year old trani fluid fullly exchaned every 40-k to 50-k and now have 160-k on it with no leaks and works like the day it was new..

Most people dont understand that old/dirty fluids is what causes leaks and break down..

Also - have you breaks inspected..
