My 2007 hemi did about the same thing. Turned out to be my egr valve was sticking open. Replaced it and been all good since. Might try cleaning your egr valve. Cleaning did not help mine. Also mine finally had the check engine light come on but it acted this way for several weeks before it did.

My question Is listed above (Harold) The problem turned out to be a frayed wire to the crank positioning sensor. It was rubbing against the block. A little tape and insulation fixed it. No problem since! This may apply to some of similar problems.
