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.
