problem #4

Dec 152010

Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi

  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,500 miles


Usually starts just fine after sitting overnight. Runs good, idles fine, no operating problems that I can tell, just when I run to the store or make any errand and shut off. When I return to truck, it won't start. Turns over fine, but won't fire off, I give it a little gas while its turning over and then it starts up. Not sure whats causing this problem. Am I loosing fuel pressure?

Ram 1500 1500 5.7L Hemi

  • Automatic transmission

Just bought the truck and drove three hundred miles to get it. On the way back fifty miles away from where I bought it I stopped to eat. I came back out and the truck would not start. I pressed the gas pedal to the floor it started. I didn't shut the truck off the whole way home. I got it home it keeps doing the same thing. I let it sit for a day and I went out it fired right up. I think that the Intake Air Temp Sensor is bad causing the truck to flood. It runs great down the road with no problems. There is no check engine light on either and no codes.

Ram 1500 SLT Hemi 5.7L

  • Automatic transmission

Everyday i try to start my car and it wont stay running. It would start for a second and then turn off, i have to wait at least 15second before a 2nd try, or i can give it alot of gas as soon as it start which is very annoying, its loud and gas is expensive, i cant keep doing this, i don't know whats wrong, and the guys at the dealership are plain idiots, it takes them 1hr 1/2 min to change my oil, i highly doubt they can fix this. If someone out there is having the same problem, and it wasn't the starter, spark plugs, wiring, fuel injection lines, but you did find out what it was, please let me know
