I have a dodge ram 1500 5.7 liter, the throttle is very, very sticky and touchy. Everytime I step on the gas my tires spinout. Just kind of wondering what I can do to repair it?

Hi Amber, yes there is. Clean your throttlebore with carb cleaner. Replace the return spring on the accelarator. With a less erratic spring. But get the throttle bore cleaned first as this may be just carbon build up on the throttle plates. Good luck billymac
