I have a 97 Dodge Ram 1500. It has 129000 miles on it. Recently the speedometer has started jumping around when I accelerate, the engine also will get very close to dying and the RPMs will drop very low when I accelerate. I have no idea why. Could the problems be related?

Do you
have the same problem?

Replace the speed sensor. It's either on the transmission or the differential housing. :)
