Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500

1 Answer

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7L shakes badly from the engine, which causes a very bad shake through the truck only when accelerating. The check engine light is on. Anyone know what could be causing this? It starts to do the shaking at about 20-45mph.

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.

Is the check engine light on / flashing? You may have a cylinder misfire. This will cause lack of power and the engine to shake. If light is on, have the codes scanned to point you in the right direction. If light not on, you may have a problem with the exhaust system getting plugged and not breathing correctly causing high back pressure. Most trained technicians can test drive the vehicle and tell if there is a restriction in the exhaust as well by performing a back pressure test to verify.

1998 ram shakes at low rpm's (1100-1700) at around 40 mph, but the wheel or steering doesnt shake, its the truck itself shaking. It's not as bad when i get up to 50mph. The check engine light


Start by checking the tie rod ends on both sides on the front wheels..With the truck jacked up and jack stands underneath the frame both left and right wheels should be suspended in mid air..The are two tie rod ends on each side of the vehicle, a inside and outside tie rod..Check for any excessive place on each one...
Also ckeck the balance on all four tire's... Inspect the wheels for any stress cracks that would cause them to not to balance correctly and make your vehicle shake...
Check the transmission mounts on the cross member,make sure the mount is secure to the Trans and cross member mount..Also check both u-joints on the drive shaft and any hanger bearings that may be underneath there..If it's a 4 wheel drive check both drive shaft's...Anyone of these option's could show those
symtom's you mentioned...Good luck and let me know how it works out..

My 2003 Dodge neon shakes pretty violently while in idle. The acceleration is also off, yesterday I tried to pull out of a gas station and it wouldn't accelerate past 10mph until i hit the brake a


Before you start checking and touching sesitive parts such as map sensors, and 02sensors, or even think of buying $40.00 - $100.00 parts, I'd suggest you scan over all of your vacume lines(hoses), just in case one of them has a hole,cut, or torn. That's what I experienced. My 84 GMC pick-up didn't pass inspection because the check engine light on, and idle was rough and shaking. Everyone was suggesting same parts as here, on my expense. I was a little sceptical on guessing $40.00-$100.00 parts. So the next day I was looking at my engine, and heard a small hissing noise. I followed the noise, and low and behold! A torn 1/2"x 3"-90 digree, $5.00 vacume hose, that was resting above the hot valve cover. Had a small burnt hole. I replaced it,disconnected battery,drove the truck about 45 miles. No ckeck eng. light,smooth idle, and past inspection. Good luck, Frank.

did you get any coolant on electrical connections as in throttle body,mas connections. check those for moisture and air dry use dielectric grease when reconnect to repel any moisture in future. go through and dry all plug connections, if you can also dry under the dist cap. I use start fluid for cleaning and drying moisture as it evaporates then use dielectric grease on all connections.

If it's related only to acceleration I would suspect a broken motor mount. The engine turns the wheels but there is an opposite reaction that tries to turn the engine over. It's held in place by rubber mounts that wear and can break. If the engine moves enough then the drive shafts are out of alignment and they can cause vibration. A bad CV joint can also cause this problem but usually causes different symptoms if you are turning right or left.
