If the speedometer still works,then no you don't need the speed sensor.The problem sounds more like the catalytic converter Which was a recall item on most Durangos and Dakotas for that year should be replaced for free at the dealer.

I had the same problem - it was a fuse that controls the speedometer and the shifting solenoid

SOURCE: 1999 dodge durango seems to sputter and buck

I agree with Krazy.... I own a 98' D. and generally keep it tuned up every 20-30k. You might also check the air filter as well. Regular service will keep your D on the road a long time.

If you have the cash, get a K&N filter for it. It will help improve your mileage slightly, and a little added acceleration never hurts. :)

Something fun:

I stage 2 chipped mine, put the K&N cold air intake kit (replaced the air box for the direct air tube), put stainless headers on, replaced the exhaust with 3" stainless high flow. I also replaced the coil, cap, and wires to MSD. The truck will still like the standard Champion plugs. All of this put my little 318 at 17MPG and over 350HP (365ish).

the cam sensor definitly can cause the problem. pull the trouble code and make sure the check engine light is for the cam sensor. if so, replace it and retest

SOURCE: i have 2002 dodge intrepid and it sputters and

The sputter you feel under load is either a spark plug wire or a torque convertor shutter due to transmission fluid not being serviced properly, A code scanner connot dictate these problems, You need it tested by a pro with a "Computer" that can read pids (Sensors) as it runs to eliminate un needed repairs..

Engine sputters and hiccups when driving


Sounds like you have a cylinder misfire. Is check engine light on ?, Have you had the vehicle somewhere to get a code scan? My assumption is that you have an ignition problem that is causing the rough idle and jerk feeling while driving.
Take the vehicle to a shop and have them diagnose the driveability problem that you are having.

Kia sportage 2007 sputters when I drive jerks and this am as I tried to speed up it didn't seem to want to shift up just reving ??!! I changed allready pump belts and do many other parts what could it be ?...


sputters in the context if engine, means MISFIRING, is it?

for a transmission, they dont sputter. sorry

but can jerk, or snatch, (being caused by gears engaging way to late)

(aka, harsh shifting) the opposite of slip

but it can slip then engage, causes a jerk. or harsh shifting.

see?

they do 100 things wrong, mostly never to sputter.

they don\'t shift up or down

they slip. (bad tranny)

if engine sputters, its tune up time, (posted like 10,000 times here)

if the transmission has issues, have real mech test it and tell you

all the symptoms, and possible ideas.

why not?

the A/T is a very very complex electro /mechanical device.



sputter is a word best for engines. like chain saw with a bad spark plug it sputters along and stalls.

does your car stall?

Yes i have a 2000 dodge durango going up hills it jerks and sputters and you can hold your brakes and mash the gas and it sputters through the carberator


Just a guess here,but your fuel filter may be partially clogged and may need replaced. Also,your fuel pump may be going out.

2003 ford f 150 4.6 v8 and the idle went from smooth to rough also sputters and sluggish while driving check engine light is flashing.


have the vehicle scanned for error codes at autozone, its free. Post codes for more help....These engines have issues with the COPs (ignition coils-over-plugs) failing prior to 80k miles. When they fail typical problems are: Sputtering under load/acceleration, rough idle, random misfires, random stalling, light or heavy jerking under load (usually at 15-35mph and 45-65mph)..hopefully this helps!!

2002 Ford Explorer Jerking when in motion


Does the jerking feel like a fish bite ( especially when pulling a hill?) if so it may need plugs and wires

if you have one bad plug wire the problem seems to smooth out at higher speeds

Hope this helps
