I HAVE 2008 DODGE RAM, 3500 6.7 THAT BURNING TOO MUCH FUEL, ONLY GETTING 5-6 MILES A GALLON OVER THE ROAD. ALSO I CAN BE RIDING DOWN THE ROAD AND IT SHUTS OFF, I KNOCK OUT OF GEAR AND IT CRANKS BACK UP IMMEDIATELY, GETTING ANNOYING, AND BLOWING BLACK SMOKE OUT OF THE EXHUAST. DEALER HADN'T FOUND THE PROBLEM.

I changed the transmission in my 1996 Dodge Ram 1500. The truck starts fine, but will only run at 2000's RPM and only then if I hold the gas pedal down. If it drops below 2000 RPM, it shuts off and won't start back for 30 minutes or more. I've replace the fuel pump and the front oxygen sensor. Any clues...

Idk if the cummins has this but my 360 had it go out. Try the (iac valve or idle air control valve. It should be on ur throtthe body

i have a 2004 Ram 1500 with the Hemi too and the rpm's jump up and down then stalls. this problem has been going on since the truck had 4300 miles on it. the dealership couldnt find any problems with the codes on the computer. it usually happens when pulling into a parking space, the truck idles rough then stalls. is this the same problem you had and did replacing the EGR valve work? the guy who had the truck before me turned it back into the dealer for the same problem and was considered a "buy back" because they couldnt located the problem.

I replaced the throttle body also, running great for 2 years now. Stall quite often before I replaced it.

Found out it was the main injection pump-
#233 of 262 Engine staggers and lags- codes P0148 & P0628
Jan 17, 2012 (1:41 pm)
So I notice alot of people on this post are having problems with stalling and staggering or idle problems. Well recently my Dodge ram 3500 began to stagger while driving at about 40-50mph, but when going faster it stops. Then it started cutting out every 10 minutes while driving till it just wouldn't start. Code showed P0148. I Changed my lift pump (fuel transfer pump) and the truck began to drive again. Its been about a week and now the staggering is back and a little worse and i'm showing codes P0148 and now a new one P0628. Any ideas on what to do or how to fix this? the staggering seems to be getting worse.
