Snow issue

My mustang hiccups when it snows out. It is not the traction...but it is starting to jerk me when it is driven in snow. I took it to the dealership n they said there was nothing wrong with it..does anyone have this issue. Usually happens in 5th gear.

Well if you are in 5th in the snow you are probably doing 50+ which might not be the smartest thing in the world. Or you are lugging the motor at too low of a RPM and its just jerking which any motor will do if you lug it too low. Or if you have a 99-up with traction control and it detects what it thinks is wheel slip its going to kill power momentarily which would account for it too. More details.

But I will say that the traction light doesn't come on when it does this.

So you are going 25mph in 5th? That would be the cause of your bucking if that is the case.

No...I was in 3rd, what I mean is that it doesn't matter what gear I'm in...it still does this jerking/hiccup deal.
