TRAVELING WEST ON I-20 IN TX FOR SEVERAL HOURS THROUGH RAIN/MIST/FOGGY CONDITIONS. EXITED THE HIGHWAY FOR FUEL. UPON REENTERING THE HIGHWAY AND ATTEMPTING TO ACCELERATE TO SPEED, TRUCK BEGAN SHAKING VIOLENTLY AND DID NOT RESPOND TO INPUTS FROM THE THROTTLE. I WAS ABLE TO SPEED UP TO ABOUT 45MPH BEFORE THE ENGINE PROBLEM DEVELOPED. LUCKILY I HAD A SHOULDER TO PULL OVER ON AS I HAD ENTERED THE INTERSTATE AHEAD OF A TRACTOR-TRAILER COMBO WHO WAS DOING THE SPEED LIMIT AND APPROACHING MY REAR BUMPER VERY QUICKLY. AFTER THE ENGINE BEGAN MISFIRING AT ABOUT 45 MPH, I COULD NOT INCREASE SPEED, I WAS ONLY ABLE TO SLOW DOWN AND PULL OFF ONTO THE SHOULDER. DURING THE INCIDENT, THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ILLUMINATED, BEGAN FLASHING UNTIL THE VEHICLE CAME TO A STOP ON THE SHOULDER, THEN REMAINED ILLUMINATED UNTIL THE TRUCK WAS RESTARTED 5 TIMES ON THE SHOULDER.
