    5.7L (345 cu in) HEMI V8 Specific Topics
    Hey y'all, I am new to the forum. I recently purchased a 2012 1500 with 60k miles. It's got the 5.7 and four wheel drive. The truck has a very noticeable lurch/vibration when rolling at low speeds in drive and reverse. It is perfectly smooth once the accelerator is applied. The truck idles...
  4. TPS or Trans?

    5.2L V8 Specific Topics
    So my second gen 1500 '99 Automatic started revving up and down in park about 300 rpms fluctuating, but stops in drive. Anybody have any knowledge of that or what it could be? Heard it might be the Throttle Position Sensor. But don't know. Also seemed to miss a gear and kept rising in RPMs while...

  6. rpm vibration / shake advice

    2014 Dodge Ram Forum
    I have a new 2014 Limited with 8 speed trans. When driving at around 1500 rpm the truck shakes. You can feel it in the seats. A water bottle in the console shakes and you can feel it. If I slowly apply power it persists then goes away as gear drops and rpm goes up. If cruising at that kind of...
  7. RPM's

    5.7L V8 Specific Topics
    Okay, so had the 06 Hemi in for a check up and an oil change. The codes it had previously thrown (P3400&P1521) were deemed a glitch. We're in the process of locating the coolant leak, though it hasn't lost any since it was added.. :4-dontknow: But here's why I'm posting this. For the past...

It's got a poweraid cold air breather and throttle body spacer(came with the truck) I've replaced the map sensor and tested the tps sensor (voltages) and iac valve (mechanically it's fine). the rpm's will typically go from around 700 to 1200...

  12. RPM at Idle

    5.7L V8 Specific Topics

  13. Diagnosis this? Here are the diverse symptoms!

    5.9L V8 Specific Topics
    Originally, it started with what I thought were tranny problems (2001 Ram 1500, 5.9). The tip off was rpm spikes (momentary, and perhaps 75-100 rpm at most). Engine rpm are actually spiking (not just a tach prob.), but I can't really feel the tranny pull. I posted the problem, thinking either...
  14. Transmission problem? - Minor RPM jump

    5.9L V8 Specific Topics
    Automatic transmission… Tach jumps about 75-100 rpm as if the torque converter unlocks for a moment. Occurrences are sometimes seconds apart or minutes. No jerking, though you can feel/hear the rpm jump. It usually happens when going up hill and holding the gas steady. It happens in and out of...
  15. RPM's going up and down

    5.9L V8 Specific Topics
    My RPM keeps going up and down about 100 RPM for no reason. It seems to do it a lot more with the cruise on. Also it only seems to do it at RPM's below 2,000. Does it weather in over drive or 3rd gear. My tranny fliuid is super clean, so clean that maybe it's been rebuilt recently. There is...
