my ram 1500 5.9 gas at a low rpm kinda chugs or hesitates in between gears. If i step on it it goes like stink but if i just want to slowly putt alone it does this weird chug chug chug feeling. any advise would be nice. no rhyme intendid!

Take them out and have them taken in and checked out but id try all the others first like fuel filter, plugs, wires possible sensors. Plus 3:55 arnt all that great for 35's I got 35's on mine with 4:10's and its sluggish but throwing 4:59 in mine soon.

did this problem just start? or did it happen when you put bigger tires on?


If it just started, and you had the tires on before and it ran fine. then tires/gearing is not your problem.

go buy a haynes manual. it has a diagnostic section where it describes a problem, then tells you what to check and how to check them.
