97 chevy k1500

Sometimes when I accelerate After I make a turn or after slowing down but not from a complete stop I feel something catch and kinda jerk slightly. What would that be?

Are you 100% sure your front axle is not engaged?
Jack up the front axle and turn a tire.

Could also be a cv or suspension or steering. Start eliminating things.

How much gas in the tank? ... Maybe the fuel pickup is getting exposed by fuel slosh and the EFI isn't getting fuel/fuel pressure for a moment... this doesn't happen with carb.'d engines... so can be a new experience...

My front axel isn’t engaged. I’m sure of that.

And it’s more of like a crank sound like something that just caught. Not sure if maybe my trans or rear end may have some worn out or broken gears.

Chevy pickups in those years had an intermediate steering shaft problem where is would "rattle" at low speeds. When mine did it I thought it was the front shocks. GM denies any problem but aftermarkets jumps on a replacement.

Well rattling isn’t what it’s doing. When i give it some throttle after slowing down and making a turn sometimes it’s sounds some something catches when I first hit the gas. I was wondering if there’s a chance that maybe some gears somewhere are loose or something.

Could be a bad universal joint in the driveshaft...

Rear ends have 'lash' clearance in the gears and there is always a slight clunk from slowing down and speeding back up...

The longer you drive a vehicle, the more noises you hear... then don't drive it for a month... when you get back in it, seems like a perfect new vehicle...
