    whatever the fuck you want to call it. its pissing me off.
    i drive a 01 ram 5.2l auto with the 47re transmission.

    when i bought it i replaced the governor pressure switch and solenoid on the transmission.

    im thinking the cause of the surging is either a fuel pump/line issue or the transmission is on its way out.



    description: acceleration is horrible, truck will lose all power to the accelerator at times, lunging at 5-20mph then jerking to a high rpm and speeding off.

    this is only a random occurrence, sometimes it will happen and it wont happen for a long time.


    any ideas?

    its going to the shop tommorow. im thinking its either the transmission governor solenoid and switch. or a fuel problem.

    i do know it threw a check engine light yesterday for a o2 sensor voltage runnning high. although it went away. i dont know if that would cause the problems. though.

    Just a test, if this doesn't work, try pouring sea foam in the tank.
    I did this and it solved it for a while.
