Asked by Sep 06, 2013 at 11:04 AM about the 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck.  When I brake then I accelerate right past 20 MPH I notice a sudden jerk. No check engine light has gone on and I have recently checked for a vacumn leak and it isn't that. What could possibly be wrong? Thank you for your help in advance!

I'd suspect a buggered up EGR valve----blast clean with brake cleaner and put it back~

would a bad TPS issue a CEL...maybe not...be my first suspect....and ain't that much money~

Thank you so much for your help. I will keep you posted
