Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD

2 Answers

W/cruise engaged, engine seems to miss and run roughly

Whenever I have cruise set the truck seems to be missing and runs unevenly. Not so much the speed varies but you can feel it missing or surging every little bit. It's not constant, hard to describe but very much like a miss.

It runs fine without the cruise set. Any ideas on where to look for the cause?

I have an 01 Ram 1500. I experienced the same thing a couple times, now my Transmission has all kinds of issues. It all started with "a miss" while going down the road at highway speed with the cruise control set. My P-code was 1724, means something wrong with the tranny. If you engine light is on and you want the P-code, then do this: Put the key in, turn it to ON, then OFF, then ON, then OFF, then ON, then OFF, then ON and leave it on this time. Then look at your odometer for the P-code to flash. ON 3 times, then leave it on the 4th time. I hope this helps.

Its probably a problem with the cruise vacuum hose.......maybe blocked a little or the vacuum seal leaking a little. Trace the vacuum hose through to the engine area.

My 2002 chevy express van has no power, missing and running rough


Sounds like you got some bad gas. Be sure and let the station know right away. They may be on the hook to pay for repairs.
Take the van to a shop and have the computer checked for trouble codes.
The gas tank and lines may have to be flushed.

2000 grand am rough idle, sounds like it's missing once it's been running for a bit.


Seems that the engine needs a tuning. check the plugs , remove and check the plugs, replace if they are found to be worn out. Also check the timing, the fuel filter/fuel pump.It is important to check the ignition pulses and the HT to the plugs.

Rough idle, cruise control also stopped working


Sounds like you could have gotten some water in your fuel tank from that fill up. Go to a autoparts store and get a product to put in the tank that takes care of water in fuel. Use it when you fill the tank up a few times after and hopefully it goes away. Whenever you can't sustain power in the engine or it runs rough then your cruise control will constantly be shut off because the engine doesn't have the power to keep the speed up and should go away once your engine is running clean again.

Good Luck

1991 VW Cabriolet runs rough during idle


Check the hose between the inletmanifold and the pipe to the brakeservo it normally gets old and a crack in so the engine sucks false air on cylinder 4, causing engine to run rough or uneven.
