I'm freakin out man...

    I was on my way home from plowing yesterday and started noticing a strange vibration in my 02 v10 Excursion. I turned the radio off and noticed my exhaust was sounding weird too. As I attempted to accelerate away from the next stop sign I came to I noticed a lack in power under acceleration. To sum it all up it felt and sounded like my excursion was missing as there was a strange suddel popping sound coming from my exhaust at idle and under acceleration.
    Here's why I'm freaking out, man. After shuting the truck down and then restarting it, its running perfectly normal! No power loss, vibration or unusual exhaust notes.
    Does anyone have any experience w/ this sort of situation? I hate to think its an electrical problem, cause when it happened I was thinking maybe a spark plug blew out (had that happen to an old Grand Cherokee that I had as a kid, symptoms were identical).

    Sounds like you need a new spark plug pack.

    what year is your ex? grandview could be right. when the cops go bad they sometimes just go suddenly or sometimes erradicly fail..chances are it wont throw a code... next time it does it, start disconnecting the plugs on top of the cops...if it gets worse, that isnt the cylinder with the problem, if it stays the same youve found the cylinder
