Question about 2006 Dodge Ram 1500

1 Answer

Ok so I recently had my 03 dodge ram 1500 4x4 with the hemi throw a rod. I went and bought an 07 hemi with 40k on it and overhauled it. (all gaskets and seals). the rings and heads looked great on it so I didnt bother messing with them except a good chem bath. I reassembled the 07 using all my 03 parts and sensors considering the fact that the blocks are identical other than the mds sensors on the top of the block which are plugged on my 03. I swapped the mds sensors with the plugs and removed the harness. the other thing that was different was that the 07 has an egr system and the 03 didnt but I machined. cap for it and then put the engine in. the truck fires up perfect and has no problems until I try to drive it and its like its dragging a boat anchor. if I crank it and let it idol when its cooled off it sounds great until it warms up. its flooding out bad. ive checked 02 sensors, injectors, and anything else you can imagine. no codes. help

Possible issues the most important one being injector pulse width, tps and ignition/cam timing... the same block means little when whats inside is a bigger issue. You probably will need the ecm tune out of the 07 to make it work right... I can tell you that you really, REALLY need to speak with someone that has been in these shoes. I would be doing some research into the Mopar world

I have a 03 Dodge Ram 2500 Hemi 4X4 that is making a very loud knocking sound in the frontend when I turn left, or right.

check the cv axles at the front differential. inner joints get loose on the splines and cause a knocking noise.

Check gages light came on then the oil gauge went from mid-way to below the low mark. truck started knocking...what casued this?

More then likely defective oil pump lost oil pressure, which in return damage your piston rod bearing. Overhaul or replace engine.Sorry.

2003 dodge ram 1500 hemi 4x4, no power or throttle response!

I also have an '03 Ram 1500 with the Hemi, and I too noticed that the throttle system definitely sucks. The issue lies with Chrysler opting for speed density instead of mass air flow, which is what the Hemi should have. I landed an a chatroom that had a procedure to try to fix the throttle response. Simple procedure.
1. turn the Ram on, but don't start.
2. wait 7 -10 seconds for onboard diagnostics to cycle and finish.
3. press the accelerater to the floor, using moderate leg speed and then let up.
4. shut Ram off, wait 10 seconds.
5. start up

After using this procedure, my Ram finally accelerated like a Hemi Ram should. The chatroom said that for some reason, this won't work on every Hemi Ram, but since you don't hook up into the computer, it's worth a shot.
Best of luck!
