Runs good under load but the has these problems. I'm going to swing by an O'Riely Auto Parts and see if they can pull a code. Can anyone in the Pensacola Fl area recommend a shop if I can't figure it out ? Thanks.

try popping it into manualllll and see if it is skipping gears... My 2009 did this and it was connector filled with water. I dried it out and put silicone grease in there. Never did again after I spent 2 days figuring it out. code was something about turbo input shaft error...

Thanks for the reply. I just came in from fixing it. I used a code scanner it showed two codes and both pointed to a vacuum leak. I found the air intake box was cracked in the ''ribbed'' area. Taped it up for now and after looking around online I have found it is very common.
