Question about Dodge Ram 2500

Open Question

Why does 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 4X4 start but won't idle?

Okay I've owned this truck since it was new and know about the battery causing this problem it has a new battery. Took it to the dealer they said throttle body so cleaned and a new kit in it didn't get home same thing dies will start but must keep rpm above 2000. So back I go they say torque converter staying engaged I get a second opinion they say transmission all righty then I had it rebuilt in 2010, but I take it to another shop he tears down the transmission and says no way the transmission is bad. He thinks it is the crank sensor, but from what I've read if that is bad it wouldn't start. C'mon somebody must have a cure I'm out thousands of dollars still the same problem.

SOURCE: after cleaning the throttle body it looks to be

When you cleaned the throttle body, did you remove the Idle Air Control valve/motor (IAC)? A dirty or defective IAC can be the result of your problems. The IOAC regulates your vehicles idling under various condictions. Try cleaning it first then replace if needed.

Please remeber to rate this solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: 2001 impala starts and dies It usually starts the

this sounds like a fuel issue, sometimes can be difficult to diagnose because its obviously being intermittant. whether its a fuel pressure regulator or the pump itself, i feel the most likely cause is the pump itself losing prime and thats why you have to try 2 times or more to crank because you are creating pressure from the fuel tank everytime you try to crank, this would also be a possibility as to the shut off if its getting hot than shutting down and than your able to start it back up. i would put a fuel pressure gauge on the vehicle and watch my fuel pressure readings to make sure they are staying true. if the fuel pump checks out than it will be an ignition or computer issue, i hope this helps

SOURCE: 2000 ram 3500 deisel dies at 2000 rpm won't start

could be fuel elated, there are two fuel pumps, the high pressure pump to feed the injector system and the lift pump to get fuel from tank to the high pressure pump. Check fuel filter also and start there. The fuel pumps are expensive. What have you checked so far and eliminated?

2001 dodge 1500 V-6 will start run for alittle bit then won't idle unless you keep gas petel depressed?


This sounds like you have a sticky EGR valve. When it\'s idling rough, try tapping on it with an object such as the butt-end of a screwdriver and see if it suddenly smooths out. If so, you\'ve found your problem and you should consider changing the valve assembly. I hope this helps! :)

2001 jaguar s-type won't crank battery new and charged. Turn the ignition car won't make a sound


many things will cause no start problems could have faulty ignition switch.use test light see if power going to starter if not check ignition fuse to starter.if power going to starter, more likely starter solenoid or starter faulty.if ignition fuse okay and starter and solenoid okay still no start problem could be in the ignition switch or inhibitor switch faulty.code scan for faulty theft security system which will also cause no start conditions.

My 2001 dodge grand caravan sport won't start


DOES THE VEHICLE MAKE ANY NOISE AT ALL WHEN THE KEY IS TURNED?, IF YOU GET A "CLICK" BUT NOTHING ELSE THEN THE STARTER IS JAMMED, GET A HAMMER & GIVE THE STARTER A FEW SOLID FIRM BUT NOT OVER ZEALOUS WHACKS, MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED & TURN THE KEY, IF ITS ANYTHING LIKE ALL THE CARS I'VE HAD OVER THE YEARS IT WILL MAGICALLY SPRING TO LIFE - IF IN DOUBT - GIVE IT A CLOUT!!

Why won't my 2001 1500 dodge ram start after running out of gas? (i've put gas in it)


You should measure the fuel pressure. When you run out of gas the fuel pump is not cooled by fuel. This can cause a pump that is ready to quit to fail. There could be other causes but I think the fuel pump is the most likely cause.

I hope this helps.

My 2001 Dodge Durango won't start at times. I replaced battery and had alternator checked. Both checked out fine?? Help! ??


When it won't start, will the engine turn over and try to start, or does it act like a dead battery?

Battery dies while sitting idle


Well it could be possible that you have a cell that is going bad.. This would cause battery to fade with little draw from onboard accessories (ie: clock, etc...) Why not spend a couple dollars and install battery isolation switch you can flip when vehicle is expected to sit for a duration... I know this doesnt solve the drain problem you have but could be a solution for not having to jumpstart it when you need to ude it..Good Luck
