you mean like turbo lag?
Poor throttle response?

I wish I could explain it,. what is turbo lag? it kind of feels like a bumpo in the road except it is right before I take off. Does that make sense?

I'm sure someone will correct me if i am wrong, I hope they do.

As far as I know, turbo lag is the pause (if any) between pressing the accelerator and actually moving. Like you are waiting for it to spool up almost.
Now that I am trying to explain it, I realize that I don't know 100% for sure, but I think that's what it is.
I'd like to know for sure too, hopefully someone else will chime in here.

If you are feeling a bump like the drive train taking up some slack it could just be that you need to grease the slip joint splines on the fwd side of the rear drive shaft

i think he means the front slip yoke coming off the trans...

By bump... do you feel like the truck is starting to move then there is a thud? If it is, id first check carrier bearing and u-joints.

Additionally, you could have the same thing I do and have axle wrap issues. check your rear sprint u-bolts, make sure they are tight not walking on the axle.

I think by "bump" he means like there is something in front of the tire and he has to give it gas to get over it, I think if it was the slip yoke or u joint he said there is a noise, I don't think it is turbo lag, because the truck will still move, just not fast.......sounds like a tranny problem to me, but here is a bump, hopefully a tech will be along here soon!

if you are feeling a bump i agree with it possibly being driveline slack, lubing the slip yoke sometimes helps sometimes dont, alot of that depends on mileage and how much slack is there you are trying to take out, wouldnt hurt to loosen driveshaft and lube the splines to see if that helps any at all
