Stop by any good parts store (Autozone, Advance, etc...) and have an OBII scan done (fault scan) They do this FREE - this will identify what's troubling your truck. It sounds like a vac leak or crank sensor but that's speculation... Have scan done then you'll know what to look for and you won't be throwing parts at it.

1997 dodge ram v6 manual jerking while driving


This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Engine light


you have a cloged cat converter, or an exhaust leak near the manifold... if you rev it at idle and it sounds loud check under car for loudness, if your driving and your going about 30 and it sounds like 90, its the cat converter, replace is the only fix for converters

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.
