Possibly transmission is overheating and car is going into 'limp mode' because of your high speed. I would check with dealer on this one to see if computer needs a 'flash' update?

SOURCE: 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 kept stalling while driving now won't start

First off you can test the fuel pump 2 ways
1.have a assistant turn on the ign to on while you listen for the pump to run at the gas cap (gas cap off).
2.find the valve on the fuel rail looks like a a/c or valve stem,take the cap off and press the needle and if fuel comes out then it's not the fuel pump.

But from a lot of EXPERIANCE on dodge engines the stalling and restarting issue is ignition related i.e crank or cam sensor which will throw a diagnostic code of engine misfire xxx cylinders.

So If its one of those sensors then you will not have any spark,and staring fluids will not fire the engine.
As for the headlights flickering they get there power through a relay straight from the battery,so I would look at the relays under the hood and find the one for the headlights and swap it out with the horn relay as most of the relays will have the same numbers.

The crank sensor is about 70.00 and the cam sensor is about 50.
depending on where you get them (dealer or aftermarket)
the cam sensor is the round plastic thing under the dist cap,and the crank sensor is on the pass side under the head into the top of the transmission bell housing and it's a 2hr job to change because of it's location is really hard to get to.
Hint -take the breather off and place a rag over the intake and a board from the radiator core support to the intake to lay on,it has 2 10mm bolts and the wiring harness unplugs from underneath.

SOURCE: Engine stalls

sounds like one of a couple things could be causing you problems first would be the fuel pump may be wearing out. these are a mechanical pump and should be producing over 35psi at the injection pump if you have a way to put a gauge on it you could check this under full throttle is when you want to watch it though. fuel gauges are quite inexpensive and are handy to have in the truck anyway. another thing i have seen cause this is the check valve on the discharge of the pump there is a spring and ball in the return line banjo fitting that holds the fuel pressure at a constant 35 psi when that gets weak it allows more fuel to return to the tank which will let it run at lower rpm's but not under full load. hope this helps

SOURCE: 1999 dodge diesel 2500 seems to have a fuel related problem.

Please clarify the "loosing power" does it lose power and shut down or does it loose power but will idle? Your Cummins is electronically controlled so oil condition is important, fuel leaks, oil leaks, leaks in the air ducting between the turbo and the intake, sensors, water in the fuel. Do you get an engine light when this trouble happens? Dodge uses a lift pump to carry fuel to the the injection pump, is it working?

SOURCE: 2004 dodge 5.7 hemi stalls while driving

with a problem like this you must surly have a check engine light on ?
To answer your question yes an EGR valve could cause this problem on a hemi ! But would act up more cold .
And No the key thing wont work on this year of vehicle , you need to have a scanner for OBD 3 to retrieve the codes .
This sounds like a fuel problem to me have you checked fuel pressure ? and for a tuneup , remember the hemi takes 16 spark plugs it could have some of them miss firing .

Hello Guest and thank you for asking your question, on Fixya.
It is most likely just the engine that is running just a bit warmer than usual causing the transmission to run hot.. The best way to fix that situation is to install a transmission cooler.

Here is a simple process that will walk you through a few steps that will pinpoint the overheating problem on your 2007 Dodge Caliber SXT Sport Hatchback, without even using any tools. It has helped millions of people, and I am certain that it will help you, because I wrote it for people like you. So here is the link:

My 2012 Dodge Caliber will only turn but will not start - the fuel pump is working, I replaced the starter; the battery does die when I crank a few times. I have also checked the fuel line working good....


the answer to your problem is in your explanation of " the battery dies when I crank a few times". Have a load test done on the battery for a failing cell. A failing battery will only supply enough power to crank but not enough power to run the ignition system. Power takes the path of least resistance and as a starter is a controlled dead short there is too much resistance in the ignition system so the car will not start.
