2006 Dodge Ram 1500 ProblemsWorn or Mis-Indexed Distributor Shaft Can Cause Surging/Bucking on Acceleration
A surging or bucking during acceleration can be caused if the distributor is moved or mis-indexed. This is a result of the cam and crank position sensors being out of synchronization. Wear of the oil pump drive gear can cause similar symptoms because it allows excessive free play in the distributor drive. The distributor drive gear and bushing should be replaced if the rotor tip moves back-and-forth more than 3/16th of an inch when checking drive gear free play.
The track for the power seat may need to be replaced if the seat rocks when the vehicle accelerates or slows down.
