it's fuel injected , you're not "pumping " any throttle , there should be codes if it's running that bad

no you have to feather the throttle to make it stop coughing in the intake does not do it all the time no check engine light and fuel pressure is a constant 50 psi. i have been a tech for 24 years 6 of them at a dodge dealer and everything checks out . but no codes and replacing the parts that were known to make them run bad , i was just thinking someone else experienced the same thing.
