Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD
I had the exact same problem with my 97 dodge ram 1500 318. I did a full tune up and still did the same thing so i took it to autozone and had them put it on the computer (its free) said it was misfiring in 4 cylinders so i did a full tune up plugs, wires,rotor and distrubitor cap, after that i disconected the battery to reset the computer and after i hooked the battery back up the engine light stoped comming on but it would still buck and shake when i got the truck up to about 45-50 mph and the OD kicked in so i took out all 8 fuel injecters (real easy to do) and 2 of the injecters were completely clogged up. So what i did was i used a pick to clean out most of the dirt/rust from the top of the injecters then used 2 wires hooked them to the injecter and then to the battery to open the injecter up (if the injecter is still good you will hear a little pop sound when it opens up) then use a sprey cleaner and sprey into the bottom of the injecter not the top so it puches everything out the top. i this for all 8 injecters and reinstalled them and after that no more bucking no more shaking and alot more horsepower.
I hope this helps
