I just had a Jasper rebuilt motor put in my truck and am having an issue. Noticed shortly afterwards that when I have my trailer hooked up, that when I back into my drive (has a slight incline), that the motor surges at idle or little above as I back in. It is like you have your foot on the gas and then your foot slips off then you give it gas again. When I take off in forward it does it but not as bad. It is the 4.2 engine. As soon as you get up to a little speed it runs great. They cleaned the idle control valve but it still does it. Any ideas?

Does it idle normal? If so, I'd look at your vacuum first for possible leaks.

Idles fine and we did replace one hose that looked dry. Will check more hoses tonight--no mechanic but will see what I come up with. Thanks
