    Light Buffeting, Surging, Lunging Under Half-Full Throttle?

    Good morning 6.7 brothers and sisters.

    The past couple weeks I have had this weird drivability problem develop.

    My 3500 has this light jerky feeling when I give it mid to heavy throttle.

    It seems like it could possibly be a fuling or turbo pressure variation.

    Maybe my AS69 has a little slip?

    It definitely has a rhythm or pattern to it.

    I tow at 10k to 15k a few times a week at 30hp. I drive around normally at 60 or 90, and rarely have used 120.

    I do not hot rod this truck at all ever. Light to mid throttle no issue.

    Exhaust brake is always turned on. Always have the trans set to haul/tow.

    I live at 10,000' and drive up and down steep hills and mountains daily.

    No codes.

    I re-wrote the tuning a week ago with no change.

    Any ideas on how to diagnose is greatly appreciated.

    I have sent Ray a message as well.

    Changed trans fluid at 30k and 60k
