Has anyone has this kind of issue with there truck? Anyways, It happened to me twice already. I notice it again today when I was entering the freeway when my truck started to jerk when I hit the gas paddle. I don't know what could cause this but its a little scary. It feels like the truck is going to die on me. Any help will be welcome..... Thanks!

I noticed a delayed reaction before in that situation. It's been a while, but I'm thinking it was a slight delay before the transmission downshifts shifts to a lower gear. I never really felt a jerk.

It could be the IPDM going out. Actually, there is one specific relay that fails that causes issues. I'd suggest that you read up on it and see if it fits your situation or not.

Past that it could be a fuel pump going out or injectors being clogged. Both seem unlikely on newer vehicles but if you run the tank low and put in cheap gas, then it can happen.

I've had that happen to me a few times. It was highway driving in extreme cold though, the gas lines were freezing. Gas line antifreeze fixed it up pretty much instantly. So my guess is it's a fuel problem. But I know what you mean, it's not a good feeling.

Looks like op has a stick shift. Possible causes could be lugging in too high a gear or clutch slippage as well.

First thing I would do is find out if it's throwing any codes. Could be some kind of fuel delivery or misfire problem.

Anyone notice this is an 11 year old thread, 😉
