The phrase tune up is sort of a holdover from a different time, like lube oil and filter. still need to change oil and filter every so often, but as far as the lube goes most newer cars and trucks have sealed bearings that you can't squirt grease into, that was the lube part of lof. what you can do for a tune up on your truck, unless you are having a specific problem, is replace the spark plugs, change the air cleaner and pcv valve, maybe give it a dose of injector cleaner.you can't replace the ignition wires on a coilless ignition system without replacing the coil packs and it's not worth it unless you are having a problem. you should clean the battery terminals every so often and check all the fluids, make sure that your tires are properly inflated, stuff like that. the tires are one area where you can save yourself some money, you will get closer to whatever the rating is for the tire life (50,000 or 75,000 or whatever it was when you bought the tires) and you will save fuel and improve handling all the while.

Engine light on? Maybe a tune up and clean the throttle body and IAC motor. Checks codes first. Then I would clean first, tune up second.

Flashing is usually a misfire. This could be a bad plug, plug wire, or injector. Maybe time for a tune up on that .

Hooked up computer to dodge ram 1500 4.7 liter magnum code came up p300 p301 what does this mean


P0300 is the random misfire code. P0301 is the misfire code for Cylinder #1. When was your last tune up? non platinum spark plugs should be replaced around 30-60k along with the wires. With platinum plugs that extends out to 100k. I would try a tune up first plugs and wires. Reasonably cheap fix that is a prevenitive maintenace item anyways. If you have just recently had a tune up or it does not solve your problem you most likely have a bad coil pack on cylinder#1.

Hope This Helps.
