Default 2011 SLT 4.7, sputtering

Yesterday I was sitting at a Red light, and when I went to pull off I decided to play a little and floored the throttle and my truck sputtered and sounded like a carb that wasn't tuned. Anyone know why my truck would be acting like that? And I just got the recalls fixed last week and it didn't act like this before the fix. Thanks

Did you recently fill up? I had that problem when I used gas from a small store. Seemed watered down. I added some fuel injection and octane booster problem cleared for me.

I filled up Tuesday, and I did get gas from a small store. I didn't think about bad gas

It was for the O2 sensor, and something with the harness.

Try to stay away from octane boost as much as possible. Most of them will dry up and break down all the seals and o-rings in your fuel system. I'm not sure if there's any foam in the fuel tanks in these trucks, but if there is it will break down all of that as well. When it clogs ups your fuel filter and you have low fuel pressure, bad things happen.
