Aight i just left the house to run get some food. when i pulled out i changed to second started going then all the sudden the truck almost died. then it started going again. then i shifted to third and it did the same thing. then it seemed after it warmed up it quit doing it. so just to see if it would do it again i shut it off then went in to get the food then came back out and i'll be danged if it didnt do it again. anyone know what might be wrong with it. its a 97 2.2l

sick s10

when your truck does this does the service engine soon light come on. i have a 98 and it would do that. i took it to the dealership and they put it on the computer and it was the TPS(throttle positioning sensor). it costed $122 total. its located on the throttle body. its kind of expensive but it was worth it to have my truck running right. hope this helped.

Check the TPS by using a voltmeter...the voltage should make a SMOOTH and steady increase.

Might be the EGR as well
