Question type: General

gear . Truck will smooth out when desied speed is reached for about 30
seconds then starts bucking again for 10 to 15 seconds corrects itself and
starts process all over. Any ideas what I might beable to do.

1 Answer


It could be the transmission. It could also need a tune-up. Is the bucking and shaking the result of misfire? Find someone with an engine analyzer and see if there is a miss.(s). Normally if there is a miss in a couple of cylinders it shows up under load. Process of elimination. Check the easy things first.
