My wife had the same issue with her yukon. From what I am told it senses knock in the engine usually from bad or low quality gas. I used Royal Purple fuel cleaner and the issue went away. You can try 91-93 octane first

Sounds right. I did a full tune up yesterday and the fuel filter looked like coke coming out

I like to use the RP every once and a while as I think it helps keep things clean & running good, it also improved my mpg
