Question about 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 Club Cab
Had a problem with the pcm on my truck(faulty circuit), got a new pcm and had dealer install, after I got the truck back it had a very ruff idle and loss of all power. Dealer said it was plugged injectors and fuel rail system, had them replaced and still did not fix the problem and now it's eating gas like crazy.
Have replaced plugs, wires, both coils, asd relay switch,both Cats(both were shot) so far no one seems to have a clue as to what is going on.
After one week at the dealers they said I might need a new engine!!, how can changing a pcm cause an engine to go bad?????.
Ordered a different pcm and installed it, Truck now has more power and pick up but still idles a little ruff and does not have the pick-up that it had before.
Does anyone have any Ideas on what is going on with this, I can not believe changing a pcm unit would make a engine go bad.
If anyone has asuggestion I would like to hear it, If you need more info just ask.
Did you try replacing the fuel filter? that would make it run rough
