    Are you talking about a "bucking" sensation, like a misfire, or more like a "dead pedal"?

  • bucking sensation, or a misfire is more like it

    Could be a torque converter issue---this is very difficult to distinguish from an engine misfire, and if there are no misfire codes, and the issue is only at highway speeds in high gear, then you have to consider the torque converter as a possibility.

    Any fault codes?
    Check engine light on?
    When was the last time the fuel filter was replaced?
    Could be a lot of things and all of them would be a guess.
    Crank/cam sensor, fuel pump, TPS, trans problems or even transfer case problems can all cause similar symptoms.
    Information may help narrow it down.
