    Ok this is a weird one. I have a 2003 Dodge 2500 w/ hemi. Recently it started randomly choking when I put it into drive. Then it happened while driving, the engine going up and done in RPM's without me touching it. It sometimes clears itself out, other times it lags and chokes. I took it in, the dealer said it was the throttle housing that needed cleaning which they charged me for. A week later it did the same thing and now the engine light is on. The weird thing is that its only once in a while. Any ideas?

    TPS sensor??? Putting it on a scanner will help. Before the code clears itself. (intermittent issue)
