Question: I have a 2000 dodge ram 24 valve Cummings turbo Deisel, I am having surging at take off from a dead stop that only happens after driving for 20-30 minutes. If I let it cool down for an hour or so the problem is gone. Doesn't happen all the time, and only in 2nd gear and reverse.

Recently with the cold weather my car (2004 4-cyl Mazda 6) began shaking in the morning when first started and doesn't seem to want to idle very well. Hitting the gas sort of sends it fading in and out until it finally hits gear and revs up. Once the car is warm it drives fine and I don't notice any issues unless I let off the gas. As soon as I'm just coasting, the RPM needle randomly drops to zero and back up again and the car is very jerky when letting off the gas it feels like I'm down shi

Yes, very much so!!! The fuel filter is often overlooked. They should be changed every 20,000 miles, or less. I would check the air filter also. I changed one last week, that didn't look that old, and the gas coming out of it looked like milk, I did ... 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee
