Any check engine lights codes. I would check vacuum lines, intake gasket and plenum. Check your ignition coil. Throttle postion sensor maybe stuck. I would even clean the throttle body. May even be a speed sensor.

SOURCE: dodge ram 1500 engine rpms surge at freeway speed

those sensors could cause the issue, clean the MAF 1st, also clean the idle system using the following procedure, the IAC can cause cruise surge. I use this to cure these problems all the time.

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve (IAC) and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: 01 dodge running rough at idle and poor driving performance

did u try turning the distributor??? if u did u need to take it to a shop and have the cam sync reset with a scanner,turning the distributor on those engines DOES NOT change timing.how many miles on this truck?? over time the dist. gear weares and it can also change the cam sync,also look at the little vacuum port on the passenger side of the intake manifold and see if the rubber plug or hose is missing off of it,also does this truck consume oil?? if it does it could also be your problem,a pan on the bottom of the intake manifold leaks and that could cause yur problem also,to test for that simply put your thumbs over the holes in the valve covers with it running..if it sucks yur thumbs in, that gasket needs to be replaced and it will also cut down or stop your oil use,hope this helps

Take it to a local Auto Zone for them to read the codes. It is probably a engine misfire and needs a tune up, spark plugs and wires.

2008 Dodge Avenger that is surging and stalling


Normally I would say take it to the dealer, but not in this case. The problem could still be connected to the crank sensor circuit. Its possible the computer is having trouble with the timing.
Someone would need to figure out if the number one cylinder is firing and the injector is opening at the right time. It could also be a problem with the timing belt or camshaft. Even the computer.
You may want to look for another garage thats able to diagnose the problem.

Just take patience,The screw that attatches the ECM does not pop out,once you get the screw spining your done on the side is a tab press and pull the connector out,it is not adviseable that you pull it by the wire harness,but in your case do it gently

first check all vacuum lines especially the one behind the throttle body to make sure none of them are off also have it tested to see if one of the coil packs on the spark plugs is bad and it hasn't had a tune up in awhile now is a good time to do so fuel filter plugs coil pack on the plugs if needed and the drive belt checked
