SOURCE: 2002 dodge ram 2500 diesel
I'm no expert, but I am on my second Dodge. I have a 2004 Ram 2500, 125k miles on it. I traded in my 2001 1500 with 99k on it.
Your problem sounds like one of two things that happened to me. At 110k mi's it was not accelerating properly, particularly between 40 and 50 mph. It turned out my torque converter was going bad and I ignored it for too long and it's disintegrated pieces ruined my transmission. I recommend getting over to Aamco right away or to the dealer if you are still in warranty and have the TC checked out. The diesel is just too much torque for a torque converter on the automatic transmission, but manuals are too much of a pain these days. $2300 at Aamco to have the TC replaced and the tranny rebuilt.
The new problem I have now is when it acted like it was out of fuel and then wouldn't turn over after it died. My fuel lift pump (diesels have two of everything and the expensive one is always what goes) has gone bad and is currently being replaced, $700 part, plus another few hundred in labor.
Hope this helps.

In the 87 model the check EGR light was triggered by mileage to get you to have the EGR cleaned and serviced. In 87 they didn't have differential pressure transducers or smart computers to monitor EGR performance. On the right Side of the dash there is a square hole plug about 1 X 1.5 inches square it's behind your key ring if the keys are in the truck looks like it's for a factory option switch that you don't have it matches the one on the left side for the emergency flasher switch. Pull it out and look in the back of the hole at the top there is a black switch I can't remember if it resets the EGR Light or just checks the light Play with it and see of it turns off your EGR light.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Fig. 13: Disconnect the wires attached to the starter solenoid to facilitate removal
Fig. 14: Unbolt the starter from the vehicle

Fig. 17: Attach the starter wire connector to the terminals as shown-V6 and V8 engines
Fig. 18: To remove the starter, unbolt the mounting hardware shown-V6 and V8 engines
On 4WD Dakota models with the V6 engine, the starter is removed from above. On these models you will have to disconnect the steering gear and position the shaft out of the way to gain working clearance.

Chrysler Corp. for 1989-91 models did provide replaceable solenoids for the starter motors covered by this information. However since 1992, the manufacturer no longer recommends replacement of individual components, even if the later unit has the same part number of a formerly serviceable unit. Chrysler now simply calls for replacement of the entire starter assembly if the solenoid is found faulty.

your pressure metering valve could not be working as it should,follow you brake lines down from the master cylinder to the frame rail it is on the inside of the frame rail and the front lines and back lines come out of it,on the front of the valve there should be a small ruber boot there the boot can be removed and inside on the valve you will see a small pin that goes into the valve it should be able to be moved in and out if not it could be rusted stuck and that could cause your front brakes to not release the pressure and cause your problem,i have a 1984 that did the same thing,hope this helps you.
