I know a lot of Dodge trucks and SUV's had that problem. Both my parents Dakota and Durango had it. The problem they had was that stuff was getting sucked into the oil pan and would clog it up for a second when you stop since it would be moving around. Take it to the shop and see if thats the problem if it is they can suck it all out and you should be good. There might be a recall on it, worth looking into atleast.
