Sounds like something is not tight with the flywheel, pressure plate, or trany. If you feel it at your feet the most, it is at the back of the engine.


thank you for your input !! i feel it through the whole truck and it feels like a miss but only at 1500 rpm and back again at 2000 rpm . i guess its time to pull the tranny again , they say the third time is the charm lol , i eliminated the trans from the problem as it happens just sitting in the driveway with no load . ill check the flywheel and clutch again . thank you


If the motor is not missing, its about all it could be.


thank you , i will check it out and if its it i will confirm in case someone else has the same issue , cheers
