Dodge Ram 1500 (missing, surging shaking)
 
I have a 97 Ram 1500 4wd automatic. The problem is 45 mph to 60 mph with engine under a slight load, the truck surges. Chrysler says they have been aware of the problem since they first stated building the truck in 1994. Of course they did not tell me this before buying their truck! They say they can not repair the miss or surge, and that it is the nature of the V/8 automatic 4w/d Ram in other words they say they all do it to some extent. I have been through Arbitration, to no success. I am now entering into a law suit against Daimler Chrysler to replace the vehicle. The truck is still under factory warranty. Is there any one else who has been down this (rough road)? Any sugestions?

My '99 seems to miss or shake around 45. The dealer said they couldn't feel it.
If it's not a miss, it could be in the drive line. The dealer is no help....... Good Luck

THIS IS A SAD DAY FOR ME. I HATE THIS FORMAT. IT WAS SO EASY BEFORE, JUST OPEN UP READ, POST A FOLLOW UP AND BE DONE. THIS IS A HASSLE AND IS GOING TO TAKE A LOT OF FUN OUT OF THE PROCESS

Please read my reply in relation to the pinging problem on the 99 Dakota (Oct 11th) The problem may be crossfire from plug to plug, or bad plug wire/s. The TSB covers all Magnum engines in Dodges and Jeeps. I hope this helps, Good luck.
