Have you replaced the fuel filter? Check the battery cable ends for corrision and clean inside and outside the terminals and the battery posts. Dodge needs a good battery connection for proper computer operation. Have you checked spark plugs and ignition wires. They can give you a problem too. Dodge also has transmission problems. If you have high miles and have not changed the transmission oil with Dodge original equipment transmission oil sometimes you can have a shutter or jerking. If you have high miles a fuel pump may be on its way out. Start with the easy stuff first. If you can go to an advance auto parts or autozone they will be able to scan for codes in your computer for free even if the check engine light is not on. 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.

I would consider changing the vehicle speed sensor. When they go bad, they can really throw out a lot of bad data to the computer, resulting in unexpected behavior like you're experiencing. They're only around $20-$25. I hope this helps! :)
