Yesterday while driving home, going up a big hill, suddenly my 2005 Dakota SLT quad cab V8 had no torque. I put the pedal to the metal, but just crawled along. Pretty quick the engine light came on.

Instead of going home I drove around a bit. I pulled over, shut ignition off, waited a minute and then fired her up again. Then she was back to her old peppy self.

Today the check engine light is still on, but otherwise things are normal.

What the heck was that all about? Now I'm nervous to go very far from home.

Really not looking forward to someone telling me I need a new tranny.
