I gave her a tune-up because I didn't think roses would help... Bulletproof doesn't even begin to describe it I got what felt like a stumble, then a ding @ 230 and before I could get it in neutral and shut it down it was wiping past 260... my Mom told me I looked like I saw a ghost when I got back to the house to get the truck... She'* running like a top now

A good overall vehicle inspection is do every spring in my books. Glad you caught it in time and no harm done.

Weeell.. I was kinda brought up as one of those "run it til something breaks, then fix only that thing" type of guy, I try to check everything, but I'm sure I leave something off the list everytime...
