    Engine flutter help

    Started today on my 2002 ..it sounds like a flutter and does it under load about when the boost gauge leaves vacuume and hits 0 boost. I feel the engine flutter. No engine codes. Idle a little off. When in neutral can rev it with no signs of problems. Anyone had this before?

    Check fuel pressure off the rail and it was ok. Started replacing spark plugs. Replace four back left two and right back two. Its the end of the day here so I'll do the rest next weekend. Started the truck and notice the rough idle gone and the truck seems normal again.

    That could be it (loose plugs) though typically you will hear a ticking noise when they are loose. Like you can hear the actual spark
