Why is my 2017 Ram 1500 jerking when coming to t stop and when pulling off
Sounds suspiciously like transmission.
Use your warranty.
I have the same problem with my 2016 Ram 1500. Took it to the dealer and have them in contact with Chrysler. The truck has been there for almost two weeks not and they still can't figure out what's wrong. First they upgraded the software...then changed the valve body...and the problem still there. They are still trying to find the actual problem. Recommend take it to the dealer ASAP and not take it back till they fix it.
GuruDTGBD, my 2016 Ram is doing the same. Service dept said "it's normal"... Uh...no... Did they ever find your problem?
My Ram 1500 crew cab does exactly the same thing, dealership reprogrammed the computer then reset the transmission> they said they reproduce the problem. I will take it to another dealership. truck has only 38000 km. any ideas
My 2010 Ram 1500 does the exact same jerking motion when almost at a complete stop and taking foot off the brake before pressing on the gas pedal. The gas cap light came on with a check engine code and had a smoke test done at Dodge and they replaced solonoids etc on top of the gas tank. Fixed that problem and I hoped it would fix the sputtering and jerking as well but it did not. The only two things I can think of is fuel filters and/or spark plugs... Did you ever solve your problem? Hoping to find the problem so I don’t throw any unnecessary parts at it.
My 2016 ram big Horn does same thing. Only 20600 miles on the truck. Going to call the dealer this week
My 2017 Laramie does that as well and I think I know why. It’s when the truck downshifts to come to a complete stop after and when it’s using the engine at a brake, it jerks like a mofo. Any other time it’s smooth. Next time you’re driving down a steep hill, pay attention to what it does when it engine brakes, and if you have a stop not too long after the hill. If it stops engine braking before you need to stop it won’t do the jerky thing.
I am having the same problem. 2016 Dodge Ram rebel..
Have exactly the same problem with my 2016 ram 1500. Had 37000km on it at the time. Dealer initially said new brakes needed at this low mileage. So $2000 later guess what? Dealer said new transmission would fix it. It did for about 2 weeks then back to same problem. Dealer then said nothing can fix it. They said Dodge outsources the transmission to another company who supply the same transmission to Chevy who have the same problem. This dealer told me it’s compensating for the ECO feature. I don’t know what to believe anymore.
I had the same problem with my 16 Ram. The dealer changed the valve body, put in 2 new transmissions, Dodge ended up buying my truck back. Bought another 16 Ram a month ago and it's doing the same thing again. Now I have to deal with that. This might be my last Ram. Been faithful for the pass 17 years. I guess it's time.
I have done a lot of research on this the past year or two, talking to the Vice President of Dodge and a lot of different people and mechanics and the issue is, well not really an issue is that the Cam is a lot bigger then a lot of engines so you can have that “HEMI POWER”. The rollers on the cam shaft can become worn down and the valves will not lift all the way on a HEMI engine only if you go a long time without changing your engine oil. But the very faintly jerking is normal and nothing to worry about. Hope this helps!
I have a 2017 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN SXT with 55000 miles on it! The car has rough idle even on Neutral! When the car comes to a complete stop and try to accelerate the van makes a jerking motion. Took it to 3 dealerships and no ones was able to find the problem !!! No codes!
