Truck acting weird in the throttle area
I have a 97 Dodge Ram 1500 sport with a 5.2 liter engine. I don't know how to exactly
explain the problem but when the transmission shifts into fourth gear i feel a pressure on
the throttle like something pushing back at me or like the truck like stutters when going
down the road. I thought it was because the fuel pump was causing the problem but a
week ago it went out on me and I got a new one but its still doing it. Please help!
Im afraid its the tranny but there is no slippage or anything but im afraid it is
Sounds like you need to get your OBD codes scanned, and eliminate much guesswork. Any large parts house will do it free. Since it's a 1997 it should have OBD||, you will get codes that begin with "P" for Power Train and four numbers. Write down the codes, bring them back right here, and one of us can advise what to do next
yes please get the codes if you got any and let us know what they are
See what I mean? If I did not answer you there are other well knowledgeable folks like Bradley that are willing to help.
So i found out it was miss firing and the coil wire was bad and had it replaced but its still miss firing so i gotta probs do a a full tune up on the truck
so you had a p0300 code in the computer??? or was it p0301-8.
