Asked by Feb 15, 2017 at 10:14 AM about the 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT 4WD Quad Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I have a 2003 dodge ram 1500 4.7 and on the
high way when I give it slight gas it seems to
hesitate or when I'm going up hill it feels like a
slight Jerking/ jumping motion when I give it light
gas around 55 MPH but when I punch the gas and
get the rpm up its fine what could this be ?

Sounds like the problem is with the engine. May need a tune up, and the mass air flow sensor along with the throttle body needing to be cleaned.
