Temporary loss of power
Last night I was driving the 350 and after going through a small town doing 50k/hr I tried to accelerate to 100k/hr and the truck had no power. I was in 5th gear (truck usually does fine from this speed in 5th) so I tried downshifting and that didn't help. This went on for about a min. or 2. Then I slowed down to take a turn and go up a big hill and all of a sudden it was all good the rest of the trip. There was no smoke while this was happening and I had the gas peddle to the floor with NO acceleration. The engine also sounded different, like it was muted or something?.?.?
Any suggestiond as to what I should check? How much would it be for Ford to put it on a computer or whatever they do and tell me whats wrong?
Thanks in advance.
