    My truck started to do this weird thing where whenever I use the jakes to slow down and I come to a complete stop and try to take off again it looses all power and studders it goes like 4mph and a ton of smoke comes out as I mash on the accelerator on and off. After about 2 minutes of doing that it’ll go back to normal and no more smoke. No engine lights at all.

    If that’s a Detroit I’m with @AModelCat. They’re known for shenanigans like that from the Jake.
