Question about 2006 Dodge Ram 1500

1 Answer

2006 Dodge Ram 1500 acts like its missing, shakes violently

I have a 2006 Dodge Ram short bed. While driving, it acts as if it is missing. The truck will shake violently and will not have alot of power. We have replaced the spark plugs, the wires, the fuel pump. The distributer cap is not loose. I havent noticed it doing it when it idles and if you let off the eccelerator while drivng all the shaking stops. If you punch down on the accelerator it sems to smooth out a little better also. Any Ideas on what might be causing this?

    Will that also cause you to have to press on the accelerator to start the vehicle?

It may have to do with the air intake. Have you ever cleaned the throttle body? I have had that problem in the past.

Check the engine and transmission supports on truck.Possible broken support and you might look at the driveshaft for a damaged u-joint or missing balanceing weight on driveshaft. Any one of those things will cause a vibration. If all checks out look at the sparkplug wires and plugs for a fouling condition. Hope this help you.

Check engine light on code p0441 dodge ram 1500 my 2007 dodge ram 1500 is puttering and acting like it wants to die out can you let me know what the problem is.


This trouble code is Evap Purge System Performance fault. 1) Check for a loose or missing fuel cap. 2) Check for a damaged or missing fuel cap seal. Recheck for other trouble codes. This fault wont cause the stumblering problem. It turns on the MIL lamp to say there leak in the EVAP system.

01 dodge ram shakes violent after bump


Yes, that rod isn't bad to do, You'll need a ball-joint removal fork for the ball-joint. But after that removing the bolt, releasing the other end is a piece of cake. You will want a friend around for installing the new one. he or she will turn the steering wheel so you can insert the new ball-joint into the frame.
