Dodge Dakota

I have a 91 dodge dakota 2wd 5sp 3.9L. Not entirely sure what is wrong but while taking off from a stop it seems to lose the gear and all power the the truck starts to shudder then grabs the gear again. Doesn’t do it regularly or in a specific gear. What could be wrong, Trans. Clutch???

  1. Is this an automatic or stick shift?

    On stick shifts, shuddering is usually caused from hot spots on the flywheel much like warped brake rotors. Resurfacing the flywheel and replacing the clutch should cure the issue.
