Lund79 Posted September 24, 2012 Share Posted September 24, 2012 I have a 2001 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab, 4.7L with 72,100 miles. I've noticed recently (past month or so)that while driving on a straight section (using cruise or no cruise)that the engine will jump 2-300 RPM and then lower back down over a period od a couple sconds. It will do this randomly. At first I thought it was only with the cruise on but have taken that off and still notice it acting this way. It doesn't seem like it is kicking into another gear (just increasing RPM). When I press on the accelerator I can get it to kick into the next gear and that jump in RPM is around 5-700 jump. Do I need to be concerned? It is due for an oil change and will be taking it in for that soon. I have had this truck since new so know when things feel off. Thanks for the help.
