Question about Dodge Ram 3500

1 Answer

Alright, my 1997 dodge 3500 v10 magnum has been giving me problems lately. When I start it, the idle is noticeably rough giving the sound of cutting out, or possibly a fouled plug. Also is weak when tryin to get engine power. I cannot drive it on the interstate because it jerks and cuts out consistantly when driving 65mph. So I recently changed all ten spark plugs and it ran great for about 48 hours, and now I am back to where I started. Why is it doing this?

Still need the codes.
Injectors can go "bad" in a couple of different ways; all they are is an electromagneticaly controlled nozzle. When the ECU "fires" the injector, it pulses a ground circuit for 4-8 milliseconds, the electromagnet powers up, the valve at the bottom of the injector opens, and the fuel shoots out, under pressure. The wire can be bad/chafed/corodded/ The electromagnet may be weak. The nozzle may be stuck. Lots of things. But, to put in an injector for a number 4 cylinder misfire (p-0304 code) would be one of the last things that I would do.

SOURCE: Jerking and hesitation between 35mph and 65mph

Time to go get it diagnosed. Could be a tunup issue or cranks sensor or fuel pump. You most likely have a code stored to help diagnosing

I havw a 1997 dodge 3500 v10 turned it off now it won't start put a new ful pump but still wont start


Before you replaced the fuel pump did you test battery power an ground at the fuel pump ,did you hook up a fuel pressure gauge ! Does the vehicle have spark ? Check the ASD relay , this powers the fuel injectors an the coils ! No Start Diagnostic Basics EricTheCarGuy

05 Dodge Magnum went from 60 - 0mph in 0.0 seconds flat!!!


Sounds like you need a new key to me. When they start and die like that, the security system is not seeing a good key. This has to be done at a Dodge or Chrysler dealership. They can cut a new key and fob combo their as well as program them with their scan tool. It will cost about $200.00 to do this. The two cranks to start is a weak fuel pressure regulator. Probably located on the the fuel pump. May be serviced seperate now from the fuel pump assembly. Ask the dealer they will know.

After my 2005 dodge magnum sits (lets say overnight) it runs rough and produce white smoke. After several minutes the smoking and rough idling stops. What causes this and what price range to get it fixed


White smoke is a sign of water/condensation (due to the coolant additive)......worst case scenario, you have a head gasket leak (minor at this stage), or you simply need a tune up......as white smoke on cold start up could be normal...has it just started happening, or have you only just started noticing it ???

When was the last time it has been serviced (plugs, oil etc)
