99 dodge ram 1500 sputters and quits

One day my truck just randomly wouldnt start. When we finally did get it to start it quit going down the road several times... Plug wires and spark plugs were replaced.. Now when you're driving down the road it sputters and sometimes quits. Throttle position sensor has also been replaced and we knocked the junk out of the catalytic converter.

SOURCE: 94 olds hard starts when warm, starts when cold and runs rich

If you can get a fuel pressure gauge, check and see if the pressure is 16 to 24 lbs after the engine has warmed up.
I would connect the pressure gauge when the engine is cold, make sure it does not leak or touch anything hot, place the gauge between the hood and the windshield and drive the vehicle until it is at the temperature you feel it "starts hard". Shut the engine off and try to repeat the no start or hard start and make sure the pressure is correct.
Also, when you shut the engine off, watch the pressure and make sure it holds and does not drop to (0 LBS) of pressure.
One last question, has the fuel filter been changed in the past 30K.
Let me know.
Regards,

Is the spark plug wet when you remove it, if not check fuel injector, also while you have spark plug out do a cylinder compression test.

2003 Dodge ram won't start please help!


Sounds like a bad connection in the wiring, like the battery cables.
Or a ground connection problem.
Have you checked the battery cables and the connections ?

I have a 2007 Dodge Ram SLT Thunder Road with the 4.7L. Recently, the engine light came on the the motor shudders quite a bit. It has lost some power when gas is applied. Any ideas, the book says...


Go to Autozone or Advance and get them to hook up the code testing machine. It will usually give you a good place to start. Vacuum line leaks are probably the number one cause of check engine lights, but the amount of shuddering you describe sounds more like a random misfire due to faulty coils. If you are the original owner the emissions system may still be under warranty.
