    i went to the gas station, turned it off, filled it up and when I came out from paying it wouldn't restart. It turns over well but also sounds like it is flooded. let it sit for a few hours and it started just fine and drove around the block. parked it back in the garaged, turned it off and it again wont start.

Spark plug socket dont fit dodge ram


I think your vehicle takes a 15mm or 16mm socket. Normal spark plug wrench will not work. Visit your local Parts Store for more information. Have them show you a replacement plug for your truck and see what socket fits it.
Good Luck.

I have a 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2l when I start this vehicle it runs rough until it get to operating temperature, then it runs fine. I have changed every sensor and problem still presist. Also changed plugs...


Did you replace these: IAT(intake air temp) sensor----
CTS(coolant temp) sensor-----
MAF(mass airflow) sensor-----

First things that came to my mind.

Good luck !

Check engine light


A multi misfire may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Faulty spark plug or wires, Faulty coil (pack), Faulty oxygen sensor(s), Faulty fuel injector(s), Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages, Faulty camshaft position sensor, Defective computer.

The engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wire, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the the problems were faulty fuel injectors. 

Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.

Good luck and hope this information helps, keep me posted, be glad to help you get the truck running 100% again. Not sure if your running a K&N air filter, and if you are there may be a flim of oil on the MAF sensor that is making you run lean. You may want to spray down the MAF sensor with a can of MAF cleaner.
