Has anyone ever experienced what feels like a "misfire"? I've been feeling this intermittenly on my stock 2008. It happens right around 1600 RPM, either accelerating, cruising, or decelerating. It's just for a split second, weird. I've never had a CEL or code. 27K miles.

Any ideas? :confused013:

I just made a post about this. I got the same thing. Seems to happen more when cold and in between shifts. Im stock too. Had it at the dealer but thier tech said it was running just fine.

Last night it happened to me accelerating (moderately) through 1400 rpm, 4th gear.

I've felt a similar surge, or better described as a skip, while deccelerating with EB. This morning I was braking with EB and pedal brakes and when the engine hit 1600, its like the EB opened up or something...as if the engine didn't want to slow down! I don't think it's a big deal, just strange.

there is a hiccup in the dodge flash, seems to be pretty regular, do the deletes, and enjoy your truck.

IMO take your truck to the stealership , have them clean the turbo, then you delete all the EPA regulatory systems (JUNK) off your truck. Trust me I've had 3 turbos changed out but after all my deletes , my truck hasnt seen the dealer for engine/turbo/EPA scam systems.

Does the stealership do the cleaning as a warranty service or do i have to pay for it? Cause mine is going in for this problem AGAIN monday......
