Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #1

Jul 162009

Ram 1500 Sport 5.9L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 128,000 miles


it will run fine until it gets up to 180 degrees then starts running rough and dies. then i try to start it back up but it lopes real bad and dies again. It wont run good until it cools back down. I have replaced crank sensor, cam sensor, throttle positioning sensor, heat sensor, map sensor and oxygen sensors. i have replaced all plugs wires coil and distributor cap and every thing under the cap. Its getting good spark. I put a fuel pressure gauge on it and i am getting 50 psi so i think fuel is not a problem. I just need some help on what it could be.
