I've had this issue since I got the truck but it seems to be getting worse. Basically, anytime I have to accelerate full throttle like entering a highway and needing to merge, or changing lanes on the highway...etc...this issue occurs nearly all the time.
When I have to floor it, there is a second or so of hesitation and lag, followed by what I could really refer to as "turbulence". It's a combination of a stutter and jerk until the truck kicks into gear and accelerates. This is a significant issue because entering a merge lane on a highway can be dangerous which is why I floor it to give myself time to get in lane and not have a person have to slam on their brakes because i'm not getting up to speed.
I spent about 10 minutes on a less congested highway the other day and just got to certain speeds and floored it and I noticed this issue seems more significant accelerating from 40, 50 or 60mph, vs. 20, or 30mph.
So if I floor it from 40, 50 or 60, the issue I mentioned occurs nearly all the time. From lower speeds if I floor it, the issue isn't present.
Any idea what could be the cause here? Thanks in advance.
