#75 of 262 03 ram 1500 4.7 rough idle drive rpm changes
Feb 10, 2009 (11:03 am)
if sitting at a stop the idle speed is high ~1200-1300rpm surging. going down the road 60mph the rpm surges back and forth from 1500 to 2000rpm for no reason. going down hill or small decline at 45~55mph the rpm tach up to 2200 and the rear end feels like it downshifts. PLEASE HELP!!!!

Mine(03 4.7) did the same. Replaced the camshaft position and the crankshaft position sensors at the same time. Worked for 2 1/2 years. Now I think my throttle position sensor just went south

Replaced the TPS and everything seems back to normal.
Oh! Radiator blew up on me just as I parked at work. Not mad though-175K+ miles plus its made of plastic so you get what you get.
Still luv my truck!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#78 of 262 loss of throttle
Feb 20, 2009 (6:21 am)
have a 1994 1500 5.9l engine. 3 times now on roads trip travelling at speeds about 73 mph there is a sudden loss of throttle. can press on gas pedal no increase in speed- just keeps slowing down. will idle smoothly but no acceleration. shut engine down and wait for a short time period and restart will run fine the rest of the trip. had new O2 sensor and catalytic converter installed.happened again. and seems to be a drop in mpg

my 2000 1500 did the same thing on me in Morgantown, WVa. spent three days waiting for local Dodge dealer to order and change out the in tank gas pump.
Seems the filter section got clogged up and would work for awhile then would stop gas flow. If I waited a couple of hours it would restart and I could drive another 30 to 50 miles and it would stop again. Had to replace entire gas pump since filter is not a separate item from Dodge.

#82 of 262 1997 Dodge Ram Stalling, Cyclinder 3 Misfire Problem
Feb 23, 2009 (10:29 pm)
I have a 1997 Ram 4x4 5.9l. Around 2-3 months ago my truck started acting up. Check engine light came on so i took it to a nearby auto parts store. Code came up as a cyclinder 8 misfire. i changed the plugs, wires, cap and rotor. fixed the problem. a few weeks ago the same problem happened again. truck starts fine, but whenever i give it gas it stalls, (whether in park or drive). you can feel it missing and when running you can hear it missing, like a popping noice. once again i took it to the auto parts store, cyclinder 3 misfire this time. again i changed the plugs, wires, cap and rotor. did not fix the problem. they said it could be the plugs or wires, which i already changed. or low compression, or a faulty fuel injector. i dont think the compression would be low. i really love my truck, i just dont wanna spend money i dont have if i dont need to. if anyone has had this problem or knows what i should do. any help would be greatly appreciated.
#83 of 262 2004 Dodge Ram1500 Stalling
Feb 24, 2009 (9:14 pm)
I am extremly happy to see that I am not alone in this problem. I can't be sure when it started but the problem has been escalating.
My Dodge Ram1500 is a 2004, 5.7 Hemi and has 51,300 miles. A few times I had a stalling issue, however it always started occasionally. Then at some point it got worse.
Right or wrong, many times in the winter I fill the truck running, as I am in a Full Service state I just don't turn it off, but it was not a problem till a month or two ago. As soon as the pump clicks full, the truck shuts off and then I have trouble keeping it running. My mechanic gets in and there are no codes, but he says he resets the throttle sensor and for the most part the truck is OK, however I still have issues.
Now I turn the truck off all the time, but it tends to stall shortly after fueling, today was the last straw and on I-95 while coming to a quicker than usual stop the truck stalled, right there. I needed to hit the throttle to get it going again, then the same happen again in Stop and Go traffic and again.
I believe the issue may be focused around breaking harder than normal. I'm unsure though due to the stalling after fueling. I generally need to hit the throttle to get it going.
When it stalls, I get absolutely no lights. I love this truck and I'm about to send out the last payment, but I am getting frustrated.
I have had two O2 sensors replaced since I got the truck, but, like I said, when it stalls no lights?
Could this be a TPS problem or one of the other issues? Thoughts? I want to sound intelligent when I call either my mechanic or the dealer.

all I need to do is say its was my truck not yours. my 2004 ram hemi 45000 miles after filling and stopping the truck stalls, no dash broad lights on. It has happened four times. I will bring it to my shop and let you know what happens. If you fixed your truck let my know how you repaired the stalling. Thank you.
