Check the crankshaft position sensor down on the transmission on the passenger side up top in the bell housing.
If the crankshaft position sensor is bad it will not start no spark.

Brake light and ABS light, stays on in my dash on my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 2WD, changed pads / rotors, lights went off for a second than came back on

May be a wheel speed sensor on one of the wheels (that's how ABS tells what wheel is in a skid). Also may be a faulty ABS pump. Standard ODBII scanners will not tell you the issue. You have to have a code reader that specifies ABS codes. A bit pricey as an initial investment, but if you plan to keep the truck for while, it's cheaper than taking it to a shop to have the codes read every time there's an issue.

I have 2000 dodge ram 1500 with a number 5 and a number 7 miss fire along with the speed sensor it just happened driving down the road can you tell me what might have caused this and who I can go about...

Did you change the spark plugs also ? Could have a head gasket leak between 5 an 7 ! Could have bad fuel injectors , clogged ! What about the speed sensor , you have a DTC stored in memory ,have check engine light on ? Need you to explain this a little better , misfire along with the speed sensor ! What about speed sensor ? You could have a vacuum leak affecting those two cylinders !

Had a "new" engine put into a 2002 Dodge 1500. Still running hot and oil pressure drops. How can I tell if the mechanic actually put a "new" engine in?

Not many ways to tell without taking the engine apart.
There should be signs of new gaskets and shiny clean metal.
A brand new engine is not really possible since Dodge probably stopped making them a few years ago. Most times you get a rebuilt engine from Dodge or any number of rebuilders from around the country.
As long as you got a warranty that covers 2 or 3 years and several thousand miles, you are as safe as you can be. The warranty from most major companies and the dealer would be good across the country, not just the shop that did the install.

I had a 2000 with leaking fuel lines. There are a few molded rubber lines. Check the condition of the rubber and the hose clamps. If they are wet, you have a leak. When replacing use the good clamps that you can tighten with a nut driver

Dodge ram 1500 studdars a little bit between 35 and 45 mph

A misfire on # 8 Cylinder which can be caused by poor fuel quality or metering, low compression, lack of spark or unmetered air entering the engine. 
There are other possible, less obvious causes as well. 
Fuel injectors, related wiring, sensors and computer issues
Running out of gas, or poor fuel quality
Evaporative emissions system (EVAP) concerns: fuel vapors leaking into engine
Incorrect Fuel Pressure
EGR system concerns: leaking EGR valve or restricted ports
Base engine concerns: low compression, valve train problems and timing issues
Ignition system concerns including, but not limited to:
Faulty spark plugs
Faulty coil or related wiriing

I would get the Dyno tuned and see what the computer is reading 35 and 45 MPH. or you could check with your local dodge dealer to see if there was a recall or update on the Computer if there was or is any issues. 
Good luck and hope this helps, Old School was so much easier.
