Cruise Control

Well usually I can get about 100miles with 1/4 of a tank with cruise control, but since my truck has starting this "choking" while in CC I get about 60 or even 40miles with 1/4tank.

What would cause the choking feeling? It almost feelings like the engine cuts out for 1/5 of a second or someone taps the brakes. You can feel it in the cab, and it only happens when its in cruise control going about 45+. Also the On and Off buttons for the CC get really, really hot while it is on.

130k miles are causing me problems.

Oh and have you cleaned your engine yet? LOL.

Hey it's a cheap part and even if it doesn't solve the problem your truck probably needed it anyway.

why would the buttons get hot though could be a loose wire or something. But definetly try the fuel filter change. Your truck probably needs it.
