Im not an expert on cars but try changing the gas brand that you use and use the highest octane mobil along with a really good fuel additive. See if it does the trick. There is a brand called bradahl or sounds like that . I just put some in last night and it took out the pinging but yours is a new truck so im just guessing it might be it.<p><br>Always use high octane gas from a mobil staion your motors run better and dont use the gas from cheap stations like speedy or total.

Is it a gas or diesel?<br>If its a diesel, then it could be a variety of things from algea in the tank and lines, to a bad filter, or injector pump, and fuel solenoid driver.<br>Dino<p>----------<br> Professional Ice and Snow Management <br>Products:Services:Equipment www.sima.org
