Not sure about the "stalling" part, but if it's only done it once i wouldn't worry about it too much. Just keep an eye out

Also, I see you are from Stafford too and we are the same Age..hmmmmm
Thanks everyone for the responses. Glad to know others trucks do it too.

@gonefishin haha that's awesome, coincidence

Another question... I was just driving and my truck dinged at me... But didn't show any lights or give any reason in the instrument panel...? What's up with that?

Edit, sorry for double post. I'm on my phone

Put your truck in manual 6 or 4 around town, and it'll disable the 4 cylinder mode and you won't have this issue. Gas mileage won't change either, one person on here even said his mileage increased.

Gotta agree, tuner is well worth it. The Bully Dog is pretty nice, the canned tunes are pretty decent as well. Gets rid of MDS too.

I have also gotten the random ding...no lights, seat belt plugged in...it's strange but until I actually notice wrong to cause the ding, I'm gonna ignore it like I ignore red and blue lights in the rearview... no really, don't ignore those lights in the rearview...

Check your EVIC screen for messages. It keeps track of a lot of stuff.

Sorry I forgot about this thread...

I think the problem was my center rear light was out. I got that replaced and it hasn't dinged since...

I went to high school in Michigan, have lived here in Stafford for a little over a year now

Thanks everyone for the relief. I truly thought something was wrong with my truck! Weird that it's meant to be like that but oh well, I hope the new transmissions (9 speed?) fix it...

Mine does the same damn thing. I feel it's a bit of the drive by wire lagging & the trans working in conjunction w/ the computer to keep the mpg's optimal. J.M.O. I feel a tuner is necessary to correct these issues.

I can say 100% for sure that a tuner will help. I just got a Diablosport intune with the Hemifever tuning and all the lugging and bogging is gone. The truck feels completely different. Under normal cruising it stays in 4th until around 50 mph so the throttle response is there. Also the tuner allows you to up the throttle sensitivity. The shifts are also firmer. Before the tune I had the same issues. It seems worth the money to me.
One more thing,no freakin MDS!
