This was the first time it happened, an it is still happening to this day. While you are driving at any speed the vehicle goes into reduced power mode. This happens mostly when the air is cool. At idle the rum's fluctuate about 100 RPM on days it happens most. There should be a recall on the throttle body's since you can't just change the tps.

This vehicle seems to have a mind of its own. You get in the vehicle to go somewhere and it wont start. Everything comes on, lights, radio, A/C but it wont crank. Let it sit 10-20 minutes and it cranks right up. And it doesn't do it all the time. It may happen 3 times in a week then go 2 months or longer without happening again. We have taken it to 3 mechanics and they cant find anything wrong. We have taken it to the dealership and they cant find anything wrong. The same thing happens to my 2001 Chevy Suburban! I really really hate this! we bought this for my daughter to drive and it has left her stranded, late for class, sitting a the gas station many many times! I see on these posts that I am not the only one this is happening to. Please tell me how to fix this!
